This week, readers get an exclusive insight into three of the key trends hitting the fashion metropolises. Digital Tribes and Refined Rodeo rework staple menswear motifs with a modernist twist while core accessories are contemporised through the use of new materials in Translucent Plastics.
Tribal prints are reinvented via graphic executions that tap into the digital age. Striking outlines amplify the bold, painterly applications within, introducing a modern maximalist aesthetic to casual and streetwear. Abstracted tribal motifs layered over contrasting prints provide accessories with a statement appeal.
Wild West Americana is channelled in a contemporary direction for 2019 as classic styles are redefined with an increasingly smart-casual appearance. Rodeo essentials are infused with a minimalist feel with simplified styling and pared back details while more tailored silhouettes offer a fresh formality.
A key fabrication for accessories, clear plastic materials provide a glimpse into the world of the fashionista. The humble shopper and simple clutch bag are elevated with understated graphic branding and plays on scale as see-through constructions that highlight their designer content.
