Women's Top Forecasted Graphics - F/W 2016-17

Take a look at the top forecasted graphics for Fall/Winter 2016/17, showcasing the strongest graphic expressions on the Fashion Snoops radar. Inspiration stems from neon signs and graffiti verbiage to a renaissance grandeur and continuing floral expressions for women, while men’s graphics explore all from sci-fi and sea themes, lines of the earth and tailoring of the body.

We have compiled this information into a special report for Fashion Vignette members, courtesy of Fashion Snoops – where the full reports are available exclusively to subscribers. The full version of the trend report is available now for individual purchase in the Fashion Vignette Trend Shop.


Neon signs and graffiti verbiage combine, as we continue partying long into the night, and ignore the need for sleep. Even though the messages and life mantras are powerful, the style and execution are relatively simple in aesthetic, as graffiti is achromatic and controlled, and the neon lights sit between pinks and blues enhancing the idea of fun and youth.


Beautiful feather repeats, and abstract feathers combine within Beauty of Flight, as we see the moody and solemn side to the animal print story. The colors are decidedly dark and flocks of birds in a foggy sky particularly inspire. Perhaps these are the birds from The Moors in Wuthering Heights.

    LOCKER ROOM     

This is our active graphic expression, which certainly takes a look back at the 70s, with regards to color palette, imagery and it’s retro-simplicity. Varsity lettering, strong color blocking and sporting badges combine, alongside go-faster stripes and old sporting flyers. We take a nostalgic look back at the cheer leading squad and the jocks attire, as red, white and yellow dominate.\

    STILL LIFE    

Still life is an interesting new floral story, as we see a renaissance grandeur to the continuing floral expressions. Fruit and birds are also relevant here, as the designs are hand painted with a timeless appeal, as after all this art movement has origins in the Middle Ages.


Wuthering Heights has proved to be one of the strongest pattern expressions of the season, as we see plenty of graphics worthy of a Victorian home. Moody dyes and baroque designs strengthen this aesthetic. The term “Horror Vacui”, which is the fear of empty space, is particularly enthralling, as we see wallpaper repeats and floral designs on decadent silhouettes. Black on black damask adds a somewhat gothic aesthetic, although pressed florals, and romantic Victorian novels adds a romantic sensibility.
