    :flower: plaid is already major mainstream trend so we cannot say its avant-garde, i find zips a bit off and done to death, so from those trends posted here i'll go for the handmade effects, eg. mixing fabrics , hand stitched looks and reworked fabrics.

    :unsure: what do you mean by 'off kilt colour combinations'?
    if you mean unexpected colours mixed together,
    i vote for this as well, surprising colours together are very 'now'

    interesting topic igni :flower:

    Thanks, Lena! :flower:

    Yes I do mean unexpected color combinations.

    Indeed plaid, now, is really mainstream and zippers, too. :flower:

    hey Lena.....make sure you're thinking about the RIGHT fabric

    you said LATEX.....which isnt the same as Lurex.......maybe a spelling error from you. :flower:

    but TOTALLY agreed.......LATEX will NEVER EVER be fashionable :lol: apart from in fetish movies :sick:

    PLAID is big. about it being avant garde, i dont think so. more a punk(see westwood) revival mixed with a bit of chanel ;)

    the rest i find not avant garde at all, rather tacky :unsure: (zippers are everywhere :shock: )

    i think the whole off-kilter color combination thing is great (if it is what i think it is)...i think there is nothing more current than wearing a terribly chic outfit and accessorizing it with a bag, a shoe, or a belt that totally clashes, but adds in a way that a coordinating appurtenance would not have.

    Plaids and tartans are quite a classic patterns and will be used by everyone from Kors to Junya in just about every different variation you could possibly imagine :lol: J'adore! Especially those mannish glens and the traditional Scottish tartan :heart: The classics will never go away.

    Lurex will never be part of my wardrobe. I HATE(!!!) synthetic fabrics.

    I agree with Lena,on the stitching and textures of hand-craft. Very worn feeling to the fabric like with Jessica Ogden and those imperfections like you would see on very old vintage clothing. This is my personal favorite Its actually kind of a new approach on deconstruction. Humble rebellion as I like to say B)

    Another trend I'm seeing from the indie designers are variants of the classic white "man" shirt-not just now but for a while it seems. In just the precision sharpness in cutting, I can see it but added with different and special details and interesting fabric choices.

    Another trend-Sweatshirts. Bernhard started this,I think,and now its all over the place. Vava Dudu,Gaspard Yurkievich,Lutz etc. etc.

    It really depends on how its done for me. I've actually become quite taken with the way Bernhard peruses the shilouette, but generally, I can't stand sportif-style clothing. Something about it that doesn't feel right on me for some reason.
