While graffiti prints can be considered reminiscence of the ’80s, this year brings a new perspective on this trend by presenting it in a more modern approach.

There are several surprising combinations that could be spotted on the runways that have immediately attracted attention.
While combining graffiti prints with solid colors is a safe way to embrace this trend in style this is no longer the only method used to create a fashionable look. Combining different prints in a single outfit or even trying to combine them with a whole different fashion trend were only some of the suggestions various designers incorporated in their creations.
