Pastime Present

The pastime present trend is centered around the duality of work and play, and incorporates the influence of pastime pleasures into everyday aspects of the modern life. It features classic patterns such as the classic bar stripe, simple geometrics and mid-century modern inspired patterns. With these retro patterns, the color palate features traditional colors with a refreshed twist of saturated jewel tones, paired with optic whites.
