// Trend Spotted: Palm Leaf Print by Modern Eve

There are few things more synonymous with summer than a palm tree. Add a frozen drink with a pineapple wedge and it’s almost cliché. And while Tommy Bahama has been doing it for years, it’s not every day that high fashion embraces the palm tree motif. But, clearly that’s not the case currently. Several designers have developed their own palm or banana leaf patterns and we’re seeing everything from swimsuits, iPhone case, and even shoes donning the print.

My favorite pattern would have to be Joie’s Pale Aqua. That blazer is amazing, right? I love how Bradley styled it in her post on Luella & June. Milly NY also designed a beautiful ‘Banana Leaf’ pattern for Spring/Summer 2013. I am seriously coveting that iPhone cover. Juicy Couture also created a line of handbags with a limited edition palm print.

Other collections I’m loving include Beach Riot x Stone Cold Fox swimwear (Aimee Song wore the bikini top to Coachella this week), H&M ConsciousNonoo Spring 2013, and Charlotte Olympia’s Spring 2012 collection.
