CPD SIGNATURES presents Trend Themes for S/S 2011

Jul '11
In Summer 2012 extremes will conquer the world of fashion. The motto goes “all or nothing”! While fashion over the past few seasons was often inspired by old values and traditions it now sets off to discover, experience and conquer. Fashion looks to the future and tries to astound us with the unusual, allowing new worlds to evolve. Classics are a thing of the past. With 2012 summer fashion the borders between casualwear, business and evening wear blur. We have arrived in the future.

The Three Main Themes of the 2012 Spring/Summer Season

Colour Explosions

Things cannot be extreme enough when tomato red, turquoise, grass green, bright pink, purple and yellow unite with black and form stark contrasts and patterns. Tone-on-tone is a thing of the past. Fabrics are strikingly “technical” and iridescent, prints are eccentric and styles asymmetrical. We already know colour blocking from the 70s and 80s when the trend saw its first heyday. Nevertheless, it comes with a new slant today. Rounding off this cocktail of colour bags and shoes are combined in pure white.

CPD SIGNATURES Presents:


Belle Sauvage
English label Belle Sauvage is characterised by a mixture of bold colours, striking prints, sexy silhouettes and comfortable materials such as cotton, jersey and leather. Together designers Neuman and Ferreira coordinate the entire design process – from finding the ideas down to the last details of the finished collection. The designers draw on inspirations from modern art, graphic design and street looks.

Maximal Minimal
Unlike in the deconstruction of the 90s today's minimalism stands out more with its architectural lines and accentuated eye for detail. Raw edges, faded colours and leather details complete the look that is particularly striking with its narrow shoulders and cropped leg silhouettes. With materials a contrast is created here between smooth cotton and shiny silk and between light jersey and washed denim. Basic colours are stone and nude tones, delicate pastels, whitish yellow and grey.

CPD SIGNATURES Presents:

Aninoto
Fashion label Aninoto from Spain captivates us with it minimalist lines and purist-looking collections. The colour range of the 2012 Spring/Summer collection comprises pale, light colours like stone hues, beige and muddy white. Key materials are cotton and jersey, sometimes modified with ajour details and special finishes.

Time and Again

Jeans meet flower meadow: actually there is no season where denim pants and floral prints are not “in” for summer but they have rarely been combined with each other so often. Denim comes with many washes and colours while floral prints feature on trousers and blouses, jackets or as appliqués on denim fabrics. The colour scheme here ranges from delicate pastel shades through to bright pink, emerald green, turquoise and orange.

CPD SIGNATURES Presents:

2OR+BYYAT
Classical and yet modern, reduced yet opulent – 2OR+BYYAT astounds with its unusual cutting techniques, high-tech materials and poetic colouring. The label was founded in Helsinki in 2002 and has since then stood for high-quality ready-to-wear and leather collections sold worldwide in over 20 countries.

CPD SIGNATURES will take place from Saturday, 23 July to Monday, 25 July 2011 in Fashion Halls 13/14 at the Düsseldorf Exhibition Centre.
