Dear Fashion Vignette readers,

This is Gudy from Eclectic Trends, I am very happy to be guest posting over here and will kick off our cooperation today with one of my the four trends I presented in London at a trend panel that Global Color Research was hosting for its international members. On this panel we defined trends two years in advance and talked about AW 2016/17. Would love to read your comments!

There is a longing towards the Nordic Shores with a strong feel of escapism. Colder climates and rougher landscapes are the new destinations where the human being has a much more difficult and often guided access to. This limitation makes it so more appreciated. Snow and ice stand for the ethereal whereas icebergs, floating freely in open water are the new symbol to watch.

Reaching the top of the mountains and clouds represent the search for adventure and the non- tangible. Therefore we dream through landscape printing in fashion and textiles.

When it comes to colors we talk icy blues, cold white, lava, dark greens which underline the sensation of the uncontrollable and ethereal of the waste nature.
