Folklore is as old as humanity and can be seen as a mirror of culture, a key to society, a projection of the mind. Folklore can be considered the unselfconscious picture of oneself; a way in which people share an identity and congregate with a strong sense of belonging. They belong to the region, to the landscape, to the history and its culture, but most of all they belong to each other. In each village of each valley the ingredients are the same, yet the execution differs and ads another local layer of expression.

COLOURS 2020 - Full Colour Forecast

In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. And the earth was without form, a void, and darkness was upon the face of the deep and unknown. So begins the legend of creation which brings us a multitude of inspirations, reflecting very new directions in colour. A range of muted colours is presented, moving from the darkness of our times, into the light and shadows, followed by the evolution of new hues connected to natural elements and animals; culminating in a celebration of diversity through the beautiful brown tones of human skin. These nuances and monochromes herald a much softer way of designing colour for the summers to come.

ACTIVEWEAR FOCUS SUMMER 2020 - Full Trend Forecast

The current religious belief in streetwise clothes and STREET styling has reached epic proportions, a deep movement that started in the 60’s with the Paris student protests and has never stopped since, is now getting generalized as never before. Concurrent with the ideas of collusion and delusion at the political angle, the strength of streetwear seems to behave as a counterbalance to chaos and disorder, as if it is the only sure thing we have left in life. A young guard of graduates and self-declared designers takes center stage and influences all other expressions of fashion, whether in volume brands or luxury houses. With a fluid gender identity and using advanced textiles with bits of technology, the flow of identical clothes is unstoppable and as a result, it becomes difficult to find ways to identify as a brand, TO DISCERN YOUR OWN DOMAIN. Therefore we decided to take a closer look at what street actually means and how we can interpret its diverse cultures in newer ways of designing and styling and other ways of colouring and finishing. From now on streetwear can be seen as a new category of its own, with its own influences and unspoken rules and regulations bubbling up from the public to influence the highest-ranking designers.
