Fashion: Pretty in print

Prints no longer mean prissy florals in pastel shades; now they're about bold, brightly coloured blocks or stripes against a background of crisp white cotton. This change has been engineered by such modern minimalists as Martine Sitbon, Claire Smith, and the husband-and- wife team Eley Kishimoto
