Tie Dye quickly became a Covid pastime and brands wasted no time jumping on the trend. It was likely an easy solution to the piles of pre-made garments and greige goods not expected to sell during a pandemic. But sell they did and Tie Dye Prints are everywhere!!

No- we don’t expect this to be a fleeting trend. Though for trends like tie dye to put down roots, it needs a few good spinoffs. Today we’d like to explore beyond tie dye and share some prints from our collection to help pull together yours. Think past your home-made rendition and learn how to amplify this trend.


Spacedye is technically done with a yarn, not a print, but there are ways to invoke the feeling with more cost effective sublimation printing. The first image from Bottega Veneta Spring 2022 Ready-to-Wear is a true space dye yarn in a jacquard knit track suit. While the 2nd is a printed dress from Alexander McQueen. Spacedye takes the whimsy of tie dye and balances it with linear structure.

Alternatives to Tie Dye Print

Smudgy Textured prints look like a very subtle tie dye. Our inspiration here started with the Miu Miu leather bomber and pleated skirt. Recreating these digitally gives ample opportunity to adjust the color and texture to hit the right note for your collection. Can’t you just see that blouse print on a legging and sports bra set?
