Hello, Retro! Ring Ring by Hoodie Crescent


If you fall in love with one fabric line this year, we predict it will be Hoodie Crescent's
Ring Ring collection. A little bit retro, a little bit contemporary, this fresh take on nostalgia is so much fun! The fabrics are available in pink, blue, green, orange, tan and gray. 

We asked Hoodie to introduce us to her Ring Ring prints.




Q. What inspired your Ring Ring collection?
HC: I started with the telephone print. I have a phone that came with a my house—a retro design. I love vintage things that create nostalgia. But I wanted to create a new type of retro—more contemporary.



Q. Tell us about the palette.
HC: The colors are slightly vintage, but still colorful. Each print is featured in several different colors, so you can choose the color combo for your mood.




Q. We love the coordinates for the collection!
HC: Me too. I really love pencils. They’re the best tool for anything—even just doodling. I wanted the pencil print to be checked or striped, and striped worked better.



I’m a dots person. These are ring dots—like the name of the collection. We added in the numbers and it feels like typewriter keys.



I had the fountain pen idea, and we added ink splotches and the grid background to give it more of a retro feel.



The phone book print—I wanted a print that read pretty solid, but had more interest to it. I looked on eBay at Yellow Pages from around when I was born, because I wanted it to be authentic. I think it works well with the vintage look of the other prints.

Thanks Hoodie!
