Denim prints have been strong for last few seasons and continue to be so. A number of denim brands, retailers have been using this trend to bring out freshness to their collection. While some of them have been happy going bold, in your face prints, others have chosen a more subtle way of mixing prints with denim and played around with washes to achieve that subtility.
We are looking in this post how Zara is using the prints on denim in its current SS’13 collection on sale(month of August , to be precise). Most of these prints are not multi colored or very bold and tend to blend with the right combination worn. Prints range from floral to geometrical, animal prints (subdued) , fancy , paisleys etc. These denim prints have been selected from their designs selling in different countries around the world.
