We’ve rounded up the top events across the globe this weekend to give you some inspiration and insight into future trends, next season and beyond.


This weekend, take a trip down to the National gallery for the Bridget Riley exhibition. Her sharp, clean, graphical style will provide great inspiration for the upcoming prints and shapes of the SS12 collections, in particular the ‘rejuvenate’ trend that we mentioned previously.
