What does this mean for fashion design?
Jane Boddy, Director of Womenswear and Colour at WGSN joined Carola Seybold, Director Business Development of PANTONE to discuss this and more. Here’s the breakdown:
1. Genderless fashion will be rebranded genderful
Blurring the lines between genders will continue to be a trend in 2016 as retailers embrace the wider cultural influences that push for a world without prejudice and without strict identity boundaries.
2. Pastel shades = calm – The Pantone Colours of 2016 evoke feelings of serenity and calm – reflecting the consumer push towards getting balance back in their lives.
3. Soft Pop – The key SS16 trend as predicted by WGSN is Soft Pop which is all about softness, with a hint of romanticism. This will extend to different materials, so even denim will reflect this softness.
