From the Copenhagen International Fashion Fair (Scandinavia’s largest): A look ahead at upcoming fashion trends and color stories for the Autumn Winter 2013 season. Their trend forecast includes four featured themes:
- The New Romantics (Sentimental Subversion palette): “A candy coloured world with a whimsical air of youthful charm. Delicate pastels and vibrant acid nuances take centre stage in a fairy tale universe of frivolity and young romance, while buoyant silhouettes and ultra-light materials highlight a fresh elegance.”
- Retro Maniacs (Super Ordinary palette) “The free-spirited, upbeat minds of the Retro Maniacs give them their distinct sense of style. Multiple multi-coloured prints embody their universe and pay tribute to the patterns of the 1960s. A rebellious attitude is evident in the reworking of classic silhouettes and a re-imagined celebration of the old.”
- Seventy Somethings (Universal Glamour palette) “A sense of 1970s glamour and sophistication rules supreme for our Seventy Somethings. These are the lounge lovers of the luxury world. Studio 54 is the backdrop for our dazzling queens of the night, who sparkle in sequins, fur and killer heels. A sexy air of ruggedness describes our cosmopolitan playboy, who values double-breasted suits, rollnecks and a smart sportscar above all.”
- Wild Things (Elevation palette) “A longing for the natural is what drives the Wild Things. Chunky knits pay homage to the nomads of the north, while the warm colours of South American tribalwear appear on prints and patterns. An effortless approach to dressing is seen on the women’s side where the swathing of cosy materials around the body is key. Performance wear is the focal point for our man, who adopts the bohemian and sporty sense of styling of a modern-day traveller.”
