With Spring finally here, flowers are in full bloom. Here is a little history of floral patterns throughout the years with French Bull.
The first floral pattern ever designed by French Bull was Kaleidoscope. It debuted in the first half of 2004 along side Fantasia, another fabulous floral that lasted us four seasons. Kaleidoscope was replaced the following season, but was recently relaunched and revamped, and it will soon be seen as a cake stand in Off Saks Fifth Avenue stores. Fantasia was eventually released as a salad server and can still be purchased today on frenchbull.com!
Next, two very different floral hues that can still be seen in various French Bull Collections. Delight is adored by French Bull Korea, while Shadow Flower, most recently in floor mat design, can be bought today on Fab.com! Both patterns have had a very long run with many of our licensees, including stationary, wrapping paper, and neoprene Built cases.
Fall of 2005 saw the debut of three blossoming designs . Grace, one of our very first salad server prints, was short lived and was only around for two seasons; however, Mosaic and Barcelona became collection mainstays with Mosaic still being a top seller this day. Barcelona was also used by a French Bull fan to wrap a smart car. This is one of our favorite uses of Barcelona to date!
2006 saw the release of simpler designs that incorporated more black and white than typically seen by French Bull. Vine has continued to sell and is now one of our best selling neoprene slippers!
Check back next week for the remaining designs!
