Marc by Marc's Shiny Geometry
The Marc by Marc Jacobs show had a lot to offer in the way of graphics. There were stars, psychedelic stripes and some really strong panel plays, but this print with a shiny overlay was the tops.
Delpozo's Technicolor Florals
A few of our editors said that Delpozo's show almost moved them to tears. It was a tour de force of construction, patternmaking and detailing. Of the many commendable pieces, anything with this print took the cake.
J.Crew's Kaleidoscope
For Fall 2013, J.Crew made a similar wild print play on outerwear. It was definitely a step out of the box for them, but we liked it. Naturally, we're happy to see they weren't content to stop there.
Karen Walker's Hippie Odyssey
"Hippie odyssey" might be a stretch, but this print looks great up close. Plus, you can avoid all those "Florals? For spring?" references and be way cooler than all your friends. Yeah!
Phillip Lim's Tiger Grain
I look at this and think woodgrain, but then it morphs into a tiger. A tiger in the woods? A wooden sculpture of a tiger? I don't know, but I know that it's one of the best prints we saw.
Edun's Escher-esque Show
Edun proved that you don't need a ton of color to make a print. The brand's Spring 2014 collection was a mix of black and white graphic prints that clashed against each other for the perfect textured vibe. Wear them alone, or wear them all at once.
DKNY's DKNY DKNY DKNY

The glorious resurgence of the '90s logo craze came to a head at DKNY this season. Its new face, Rita Ora, closed down the catwalk in an all-over print that read more nostalgic than anything. When she performed later in the week, she wore the same print in a robe, only to throw the robe down to reveal even more DKNY. Too much? Nah—just enough for a 25th anniversary.

Christian Siriano's Florals
I think we can remove any reality TV curse chatter from Christian Siriano. Dude has design talent in spades and came out of the gate with some great separates this year—most notably, anything in this print.
Prabal Gurung's Translucent Damask

Prabal Gurung's Spring 2014 collection was killer. The experience in itself was like an Epcot center ride, but in Bergdorf Goodman—unfathomable. One of the highlights was definitely this print—a sheer and shimmering layered damask that looked light as air.

Proenza Schouler's Tree Branches

There's something oddly appropriate about spring clothes with a bare branch print on them. I'm almost certain it's a nod to Game of Thrones. Oh, yes, it's warm now—but winter is coming. That's probably not true, but I like to live in a world where the seven kingdoms and NYFW can coexist in complete harmony.
