S/S 06 Trends you can't wait for
Hi everyone:
I was wondering what trend you're most looking forward to in Spring. I personally can't wait for the whole industrial or Mod/Minimalism trend (ex. marc jacobs, balenciaga) because I'm really tired of over accessorizing...lol!

Other potential trends:
"Surrealism": sophisticated, elitist, womanly style. Fluid, curvy, shapely, feminine, waist cinching. Romantic. (YSL Rive Gauche, Rick Owen, seen in touches throughout many collections)

"Industrial": like a machinists, not so military as it is inspired by the factory or proletarian wasteland of the Eastern bloc. Functionality with details (pockets, flaps, tabs, snaps, zips, seams, patches); Defined by retro-futuristic colors (industrial drays, graphite, corroded-finished copper & rust, silver); Minimal & clean. (ex. Prada, Calvin Klein, Narciso Rodriquez, Lanvin)

"Fauvism": inspired by the nature & outdoors; rustic & country in a classic way; think of leaves, flowers, birds, beasts; silhouette is tailored, dressed up sportswear, neutral colors like rich warm brown mixed with brights. Also romantic. (Ex. Dolce & Gabbana, D&G, Gucci)

"Dada": anti-bourgeois, do-it-yourself magpie quality, reconstructed, patched & pieced; impression of borrowing and self mixing; chaotic mix of prints and patterns (Ex. Dries van noten)

Also, it would be really helpful if you could also provide your general age range.

Feel free to include your favorite collection or piece of the season!!!

I'm going to be using this information to provide the best designs for you, the customer! I think style.com and other trend forecasters help in predictions but sometimes the customer may not necessarily buy what looks appealing.

Thanks!!!

I'm definitely looking forward to some of these:

Cloak : The whole military and safari look is just stunning... and they're still holding on to some of those neo gothic looks from the past seasons.. so lovely...

Dries Van Noten : Oh... one word: Romanticism.. It is amazing what Dries has done for his S/S 06...

Ann Demeulemeester : That effortless straight-out-of-bed look.. catched my eyes.. and my mind still wanders...

From the descriptions above and the designers you used as an example I would have to say "Industrial"

But otherwise I'm just looking forward (hopefully all these will become trends) to all the light colors, like nude and white. And all the dresses can't wait for it.. and the white accessories that I most of all hope will become a trend.. and the highwaist skirts.

I don't think that I will stick to one style of dresses in spring and in summer.. I will probably mix a lot of stuff.

none of those sound like actual trends for s/s 05 to me...

i think that the edwardian/romantic/new gothic look will still be going forward...
along with minimalism...

i also think we will see very little colour...
lots of blk, white and all the shades in between...
we have threads on all of those trends if you care to take a look...


ps-pm a mod for this section to have the double post deleted...

I would love for this industrial thing to go down, I used to be machinist myself for a bit. Wait until you see some customization... But then again, I haven't seen anything.

I really like the "Surrealism" style you described. Balenciaga seemed to be anything but minimalistic though, it's filled with frilly lace, patterns/prints, lots of those big chocker necklaces. Maybe I have the wrong image of minimalism?

None of the trends you describe are what appeals to me personally at the moment ... I was overall disappointed with the spring shows because I didn't like the radical about-face from fall that so many designers executed. I also didn't like how dark and heavy many collections were. I wanted to see what I loved about fall interpreted for spring, and it just didn't happen. I'm not a person who is "so over" this or that ... my clothes stay with me (I hope) as seasons pass. I won't deny that I buy trends, but I'm not a trendy dresser, if that makes sense.

What's looking good to me for spring is Edwardian (as softgrey mentioned), possibly a bit of 20s influence. Round toes, soft, flowing lines, embroidery, silk. I'm looking for solid colors and subtle detail. I like the bug jewelry trend (esp dragonflies), which to me evokes Victorian collections and Tiffany stained glass. In terms of personal usefulness, probably my favorite collection was Anna Sui. Also loved Lanvin resort. I may buy some of the long shorts that were everywhere. I *will not* be cinching my waist. I *am* so over that. I have no intention of giving up comfort because Stefano Pilati says so.

What I'm looking for is probably at least somewhat against trend at the moment, but I've already spotted some individual pieces that I think will work for me, and I'm sure I'll find more once everything starts to hit the stores.

I agree with so much of what you say. And I cannot but feel that this "radical about-face from Fall" is all about trying to make people buy a whole new wardrobe,and filling the fashion industry coffers.

I haven't even looked at an SS06 runway with a view to actually owning anything on there,to be honest.

For me,it's going to be a lighter evolution of what's going on right now.Summer clothes for me are always about comfort above anything else,anyway.
