    SHARP AND SOFT    

Courage, poetry, design endurance, romance, willpower, and consistency define this modern, environmentally conscious theme.  Green visions are still carried by thoughts of liberty and independence, achieving an unexpected dynamic with the help of professional realization and contemporary design.  alternative, self-sufficient, urban and ecological developments represent power and credibility via their developed functionality.


    THE NEW AND CLASSIC    

Classic as concept.  "THE NEW and CLASSIC" modernizes the familiar, from Bauhaus to 60s functional design a la Dieter Rams to a 90s minimalism.  From the early 80s derive inspirations of teenage street wear and pro to sportswear looks.  Androgynous suits in unisex styles of the aughts serve modern business wear.  Out of established forms, fresh new looks arrive thanks to technical ideas and materials.  Themes like power classics, norm core, and low control show the way on the drive towards more simplicity.


    BRAINS AND BONES    

Intelligence and instinct - Cyber meets Stone Age and Space Travel meets Inuit.  The futuristic is grounded by the primal.  Mixing the high-tech  forms of chrome and reflective materials with primordial materials like pelts and felt, brings two distant worlds together and makes the future trend wearable.  This becomes clear in the opposition of "Tech Affinity, Exploratory Urge, Future Vision" and "Symbol, Ritual, Hunting".


    BEAU AND BIZARRE    

Extravagance and humor, dandy and magic, beauty and gourmet, fetish and design, play!boys and play!girls, baroque and disco, bustiers and tuxedos, bow-ties and high heels - an entertaining mixture of creative textile and stylistic riches.  It's calmer and realized with more finesse than in previous seasons.


    HIGH TECH AND LOW GROUND    

Extremes - challenge and inspiration at the same time.  Going to the limits! Extreme activities like Arctic surfing, winter camping or snow biking go along with more relaxed nature adventures like fishing or building a fire.  More moderate, yet still landscape in its purest: hiking in the green of the Scottish highlands, kayak tours through the pristine European forests of the Polish Masuria, or taking a dip in Iceland's hot geysers.


    RACE AND ZEN    

Adrenaline-loaded speed crashes straight into meditative equilibrium.  Jeans are fast and slow!  They continue to combine super tight silhouettes with relaxed widths.  The tendencies come from two directions:  one very technical and functional with protectors and Kevlar woven in, and the other with a meditative characteristic, OM-oriented and calm.
