The September Maison & Objet in Paris was another must-see show and this report will give you The Trend Curve’s expert insights from this directional European fair.
Abstraction and asymmetry became major influences on both shape and pattern as product designs stretched for uniqueness. Looks that were handmade, lacking perfection offered another update that also impacted texture.
Color showed seasonal evolutions as companies introduced a palette of deep values that fit perfectly with a fall/winter emphasis. When it came to color families, the market sat up and noticed blue’s surge toward denim-influenced territory. Greens made waves as they pushed into established territory. At the same time, the momentum for browns and the rise of blues as they veered away from periwinkle personalities were important shifts. Meanwhile, folkloric themes joined tribal ones. Along with an updated Baroque look, they offered a counterpoint to the ultra-contemporary shapes and patterns that are still emerging in strength.
