This design issue is inspired by the Trend & COLOUR Forecast for spring/summer 2016 and the three main trends: Screenage, Ecocide and Paradox. DESIGNs for Screenage resonate with a heightened sense of femininity and novelty. In Ecocide we look to nature’s delicate forms, which are captured in delicate patterns for urban summer styles. Paradox, explores contemporary tailoring with unexpected details and fabric combinations.
Detailed designs offer a platform for creativity and a solid base for new collections for 2016. Each theme is divided into women and youth categories and contains designs for apparel and accessories. Sketches include outerwear, tailoring, knitwear, jersey, denim, separates, dresses, swimwear, beach and accessory designs. Technical sketches are ready to download and customise using Adobe Illustrator or other vector design software; download individual designs or the entire matrix, complete with the figure template.
SCREENAGE – Simple styles are at the core of the trend with a heightened sense of femininity and novelty. In the youth sector designs explore kitschy culture and fun embellishment.
ECOCIDE – DESIGNs are gently structured and nature’s delicate forms are captured in decorative patterns. Revived crafts add an authentic edge to casual and urban summer styles.
PARADOX – Styles are tailored into contemporary shapes with visual contradictions. The idea of a paradox adds off-kilter details, asymmetric cuts and unexpected fabric combinations.
