TRENDS OVERVIEW spring/summer 2016
The focal point of next season will be a “transcontinental modernity”. The strategy is to fuse different languages together giving birth to a new mythology, a confusion of colours and seasons, a cross-boundary loss of inhibition that oscillates between the urgency of modernity and nostalgia for the past. Under the influence of this disrupted metronome arises an unexspected desire for alternation, for complementarity or opposing, arbitrary or obvious, movements, incarnated in unusual “round trips”. Refined neutrals, muted pastels and summer darks are enlivened by warm orange and mid-purple, and highlighted with
metallics of whitened copper and silver for an elegant transitional mood.
