Palm trees were all over the place at Expomeloneras in Maspalomas during Swimwear Fashion Week Gran Canaria Moda Calida 2014 🙂

The plants-print is definitely forcing out the animal-print trend which was so omnipresent last season. Summeeeeeer! 🙂

ps: A little update:
Check out this video from The Guardian on palm-tree print as this summer’s trend. There’s still over a month of summer left and in the Canary Islands… winter comes shortly before Christmas!

Maximalistic print and minimalistic accesories. Timeless flower print + lace = femininity. Femininity + boots = this season’s must have.

Estampado maximalista y accesorios minimalistas. Eterno estampado de flores + encaje = feminidad. Feminidad + botas = un must have de esta temporada.
