Trend Atelier:Macro Trend Forecast “WONDER WANDER” AW 2016/17
WONDER WANDER proposes a new definition of cultural identity and spirituality and focuses on design leaders exploring these concepts and propelling them into the future. Stylistically it creates a hybrid of anthropological references, combining futuristic aesthetics with nomadic and Inuit inspiration.
In terms of shape and design details- look into Ceremonial robes and costumes, oversized and over-layered with inclusions of decorative patterns, referring back to Alaskan and Inuit cultural references. This inspires elongated parka shapes, experimental knitwear combinations and patchworked outerwear inspired by polar clothing.
A strong direction for beauty, Wonder Wander refers to digital face mapping, new 3D digital makeup printing and resonates these groundbreaking technologies with Ancient tribal masks. There is a Legendary and mythical quality to the trend looking as fantasy empowers people to create superhero versions of themselves.
For Colour, utilize a PRIMAL AND STARK combination, pairing fire red and sunflower yellow with moody darks, greens and touches of ochre, which ground the palette.
