Trend Preview A/W 2009/2010: Delicatessen
Absolute Elements: We look back to the good old values of our great-grandfather??s day and show due respect to nature. In woods and mountains we find the necessary balance for our everyday lives. Everything can look a bit old fashioned, exuding reliability, calm and naturalness. This produces a lifestyle that knows how to appreciate both clearly constructed, resource-conscious architecture and the rough sides of nature and the great outdoors.
Colours: Coffee brown and blue tones that look either like crystal-clear mountain lakes or deep, dark waters. The greyish white of fresh air, the dark brown of fresh brown bread, the rich green of the forest and the gentle green of green tea.
Fabrics: Owls, bears and wolves are inspiration here for the tactile feel and “animalistic” touch of the fabrics. Animal motifs and archaic patterns serve as the basis for prints. Voluminous fabrics, heavy weights, cord, leather and skins, Tweed, herringbone, traditional patterns, knits with huge stitches as well as almost plain, shaded or cross-dyed checks form a rich and full fabric landscape here.
The Poet and The Doll: A soft, melancholic mood in nebulous colours unfolds. A fairytale world between poetry and dreams: delicate, elf-like and sometimes childishly naïve. A touch of rococo allows fabrics to flow and flutter and even findings seem fragile. Colours: Misty, sun-drenched and morning moods serve as basic tones for a soft hued colour spectrum. Cotton colours in pale apricot, beige-speckled cocoon, cute pink, mauve and the greyish white of light bands of cloud mix with a clear blue sky, bluish, pigeon grey and a dark brown grey reminiscent of imaginative lead-cast figures.
Fabrics: The floating feel of these themes is reinforced by pile fabrics and fluffy, cosy and cuddly soft materials. The weaves are layered and draped through to voluminous origami art works. Light and heavy jerseys serve as a basis for lace, ribbons and feathers. Openwork effects add coordinated patterns. Velvets serve as a basis for soft, pale and medium tones for large garments. Stylish pile comes in cashmere, vicunha and alpaca.
