By 4th quarter next year we will feel the need to desire again, to imagine and daydream about the future, to respond to the visual and esoteric and whatever gets our juices flowing. It’ll be a season of indulgence, the freedom to seek the gratification of desire! We want to create very strong visual looks and do everything we did right for fall ’14 but to
make it MORE!
Here is some of the trend direction. To see my complete trend presentation for Winter/Holiday 2014, please contact me. There’s a lot more on color, texture ideas, sweater knits and stitches, and influential themes.
We’re in a textile driven era. Garment style is still not driving trend and I believe we’re finally coming out of a highly print driven era, great run tho that it was. The most important statement to make is for your fabrics to have texture and surface dimension. Relegate your solid and flat fabrics to basics only; do something innovative and special with the rest!!
Make it soft, cozy, comfy, warm with lots of brushed surfaces, angora and mohair knits.
Embellish strongly with jewels, gemstones and pearls instead of sequins for glitter and bling.
The Midas Touch–use lots of metallic gold as allover molten looks mixed with black (very wearable), or as just a smattering in a print, or on a key item to update.
