Designers to use dramatic colours for autumn/winter 2009-2010

Stahl's Colour Forecast for Autumn and Winter 2009 – 2010 says that there is a taste for change. After several seasons of over-abundance, eccentricity and the triumph of artificial over the natural, there is a strong desire to return to a state of equilibrium. Is this a reflection of the current world economic climate? Has this resulted in a wish for fashion to take things steady rather than go overboard? Or is it simply a question of pausing for thought while we mix technical and traditional once more?

The booklet that has just been published shows six quite distinct colour groups all related to the significant keywords “personalization, mobility, quality, smart solutions and eco-supporter” which, in their turn, point the ways in which designers are thinking about the use of dramatic colours for the coming autumn and winter 2009 – 2010 seasons.

The forecast starts with the drama of autumn, a veritable explosion of autumn colours and shades on classic shapes in a group called “Assuring Heritage”. Here is luxury coupled with eccentricity and sophisticated couture, colours that combine young and modern with a touch of vintage.

Just as winter is darker than autumn, so the next group, “Unexpected Poetry” moves into the mysterious realm of hypnotic dark colours, colours that are strongly reminiscent of the long dark evenings to come as winter progresses. Black magic and a dandy style combine with wonderful Victorian influences in a new fusion of feminine and masculine.
