NEW YORK (AP) - Perhaps candy-colored plaid isn’t for you. And maybe you weren’t searching for the perfect red-striped suit.

But it’s hard to say the prints shown Monday at New York Fashion Week didn’t draw the eye _ and come as a welcome relief from the graphic black and white that have been so prominent in spring previews.

Marc Jacobs went with bold stripes, while Thom Browne went for a kooky mix that included rainbow plaid. Carolina Herrera showed an abstract geometric print, and Elie Tahari had Palm Beach prints that mixed palm leaves, leopard skin and tropical flowers.

New York Fashion Week was in its fifth day of previews Monday and continues through Thursday.
