when done well, this is one of my favourite recurring themes.
at dries

like here, at Comme des Garcons, I think the trend works best when all the busyness is toned down with some black or a block colour

I really like pattern clashing - as long as the 'clasher' has a good eye.

Or maybe a better term for it would be 'pattern contrasting'? As one is, actually, trying to produce an interesting contrast; not a jarring clash.

As I mentioned on the Dries thread, I think it only really works, IRL, if one either clashes the motif or the colours; not both.

Otherwise it just looks totally random and even unpleasant.

Clashing patterns may look like someone can't make clothes with a consistent pattern. However (and done right), you can combine various patterns to really add spice to an outfit. The only things I can think of in which there are different designs that still make something lovely would mostly be fancy rugs. Seeing these clashing patterns (speaking as an artist) can come together to make an overall artistic pattern. Not sure if I'd say fun, but really special done right. Different pattern styles can merge together for some amazing looks. Even with garments of a certain pattern, I mostly see a patterned top paired with solid-colored bottoms. I've seen a solid or two-tone top paired with patterned bottoms. I can see this style working as long as the complete look is an even balance of patterned styles. It's all about balance to me. Either you have it, or you don't. And if you don't, pulling these looks off will be quite challenging. It's the artistic value as well as potential for unique and amazing looks that have me praising this style.

yes I agree with you.. it can't go over the top.. you have to have a solid colour to even everything out.. the see by chloe dress is a great example of that.. the black part makes the dress not seem too much

I am head over heels in love with this trend, especially the way it was done at Dries.

I made a post on my blog about this. It's fun to mix up patterns.

Perfect example of this...

On another note -
It is so incredibly hard to find lovely/interesting prints...
So many hellish florals and Laura Ashley-esque prints..
