Colour Forecasts and Trend Tracking for Fashion, Footwear, Handbags, Jewelry and Accessories
Spring this year is in the pink! Pale blush shades are at the pale spectrum of the pink palette going all the way to more intense, tropical, hot pinks. Designers set the pace by sending head to toe pink fashions down the runway. Accessories tap into the trend as well, from head to toe, from jewelry and eyewear to shoes.
Premiere Vision in Paris has grown exponentially from being a textile fair to include yarns for knitwear, leathers, furs, accessories and hardware.
Spring/Summer 2017 footwear collections got a head start in August at trade fairs in New York (FFANY), Platform in Las Vegas and at the Atlanta Shoe Market.
Footwear fashions are evolving for spring/summer 2017. Instead of over-embellished, consider clean and unadorned. Instead of granola casual, think about adding comfort chic and steer towards more tailored-looking footwear.
The unstoppable trend towards casual comfort-driven shoes seems to have peaked! There were still plenty of collections promoting comfort footwear at Micam, the international footwear trade fair presenting fall/winter 2016/17 collections in Milan.
Italy’s reputation for making the finest, most fashionable, trend-setting shoes in the world is more than justified, and Paris as an epicenter of fashion is on the same page. On a recent shopping trip to both places we found some exciting styles that would make a great addition to anyone’s shoe wardrobe for a forward, very special footnote this season.
