Chic Friday Fun: Prints you never thought you’d see or wear

Move over the “Little Miss” tshirt series (Little Miss Chatterbox etc), and Wake Up Sid’s Garfield tshirts. We’ve dug up some prints you never thought you’d ever see, let alone wear. But they’re out there, they’re fun, and you can actually wear some of them!

We picked out some fun prints and object motifs and rated them on wearability on a scale of 1 to 5 (1 being not at all wearable, 5 being totally wearable!).


Sabah Khan’s Sabashe collection at Lakme Fashion Week Summer/Resort 2011 was kitschy chic (tongue twister!) and inspired by Mumbai’s public transport, especially the rickshaws aka ricks. Ricks appeared on tops, pants, skirts and even waist pouches!

Why go to the beach to collect shells when they can come to you? (Playsuit from French Connection).

With yet another mode of transport, Nida Mahmood’s Wills Lifestyle India Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2011 collection was about the Indian roadie, with the bicycle representing the common man. Paired with the designer’s signature bags in shocking pink and turmeric yellow, it was a casual Indian summer look.

Mango continues its animal print series this summer with some more exotic creatures, such as this parrot. Check out the the brightly-coloured bird nestling among the leaves on this tshirt.
