NEWS FROM EUROPE!

I’m back from London and Paris and working on the presentation for my webinar next month. It was a worthwhile trip, if nothing else, to reaffirm my growing belief that trend is no longer about the themes and looks, but about generating newness in key items, fabric treatments and detail.

Here is a taste of what I saw and what I feel is important. I have much more to show, plus lots of inspiring photos and commentary prepared for my webinar next month.

Color was generally deeper, and there were still lots of color choices which is always great and the way it should be.

Wine was predominant as was rust/orange.

Hunter green and the blues (including lots of navy) sparked an incoming interest in featuring the cool color families.

Leather, leather, leather . . . what can I say other than it keeps growing in importance as a look for the masses.

Novelty skinny jeans were the choice of bottoms . . . lots of corduroy, glazed, printed.
