I gave my initial trend presentation, attended the print shows, and covered trend forecast service presentations in the beginning of this month. Here are what the services supported in new trend direction I picked up on earlier in the season:
Every forecast service continued to show the importance of deep, deep blackened color ranges
With rich autumnal and jewel colors, pay attention to the quieter cool side of the palette……greens, blues, greys…..in all depths and casts mixed together–calming and replenishing.
Go to town with all the classic and fashion-right wines and hunter green!
Look to Other Worldly places for Surreal inspiration, Galaxies and Meteors, the Magical/Mystical/Mysterious.
Look to the natural side of things with real, raw and organic along with a continued reverence for craftsmanship.
Make a flamboyant statement using dressed up historical dandies, and taking embellishment to the hilt a la the theater and anything theatrical!
