Tie-dye seems to have earned itself the title of “the biggest trend of the season” before summer has even begun. Celebrities like Gigi Hadid and Kylie Jenner are embracing the psychedelic swirls, not only choosing the print for their Coachella outfits but also for manicures. Luxury fashion houses and streetwear labels alike are also capitalizing on the trend, with Prada splattering its apparel and coveted handbags with the pattern, and Stussy coloring its T-shirts and hiking vests in a similar manner.
