Sónar Festival returned to Barcelona yesterday for its 24th edition. A cult festival favourite, Sónar brings the latest electronica and dance artists to the forefront of the European music scene. Acts such as Justice, Little Dragon and Thundercat are on the three day line-up, as well as an exclusive art-infused DJ set from Björk. Alongside its experimental music line up, the festival is also home to a number of exhibition areas which fuse design and technology.
Trendstop attended the festival opening in Barcelona to bring you the latest street style looks from Sónar 2017.
A subversive mood emerges from alternative, Eastern aesthetics. This contemporary take on Asian styling sees a deep black palette decorate a range of apparel items, providing a contrasting base for fuchsia pink and stark white highlights. Accessories and beauty are key to elevating this look, with hand-held fans and structured up-dos creating dramatic statements.
A validation of our Minimal Messages Graphic Theme, slogan statements are minimised for big impact. Sans-serif fonts bring a contemporary look to these typed messages, complimented by an effective two-tone palette. Composition is key to the execution of this trend, whether it be an interesting placement position or an emphasis on clear space.
The New Traditionalist
Traditional costumes are removed from their historic contexts for a fun revival. This vibrant trend hints at our Poly-Identity Early Concept, as contrasting aesthetics are brought together to create a playfully juxtaposed look. Tonal colour palettes create a sense of harmony, fusing contrasting combinations such as dreadlocks and kimonos. Highly decorative accessories complete the experimental styling of The New Traditionalist.
Normcore undergoes a dark makeover at Sónar Festival. The all black palette works across apparel and accessories for a cool yet understated festival look. Staple black-wash jeans are teamed with basic t-shirts, modernised through subtle styling details such as the tucked-in top and rolled-up jeans. This versatile trend can be dressed down when teamed with charcoal toned trainers.
