WINTER 16/17

Men’s Designers

The trends we highlight this issue contain staple and commercial menswear styles, they reference key menswear influences and take inspiration from the past. But what makes things new and interesting is the way different influences are mashed together, garments are layered to create unexpected proportions and new hybrid silhouettes emerge when sportswear enters the mix.

Denim Most Wanted

View2 took its seasonal trip to Barcelona to visit Denim by PV to discover future trend directions. Striving to create that unique pair of jeans put customisation and creative detailing in the forefront. But as is often the case, raw denim ruled for purists. Textured surfaces appeared through both simple and intricate patchwork, beautiful hand-stitched patches and linen and bleached waffle effects. 


Colour Direction

The division between strong, saturated colour and paler, more ethereal tones continues as we enter S/S 2017. There is certainly a growing mood for gentler, less aggressive masculine colour. It’s a good season for sportswear as the industry embraces both fast and strong colour for competitive sport, while slower sports such as yoga have more traditional ghosted neutral palettes to turn to, in addition to these brighter shades.

Fabric & Trim Direction

For Summer 2017, we put fabrics at the centre of our thinking again. It’s not enough to just produce a basic and colour it. You need to execute construction and embellishment with care and attention to detail so that no matter how banal the look from afar, it’s actually a wonder of manufacturing when seen close up. It is a meeting of technology and creativity, the mantra of current design thinking!

Women’s Trend Direction & Key Items

We continue to move away from the clinical predictability of recent seasons with an evolving appreciation of the handmade; an aesthetic that teases the senses with its rich array of texture and pattern. Textured fabrics and surface decoration are pivotal factors – no surface appears flat. Relaxed fits retain a feminine edge through the use of exaggerated A-lines, maxi lengths and wide-leg denim fits.

Men’s Trend Direction & Key Items

This season’s menswear trends seem to encapsulate a mood for moving forward from – or indeed away from – the geopolitical issues that have become the backdrop to our lives. We find hyper-modern trends, which derive more influence from architecture, science and technology than from any historical fashion pastiche. With the increasing development of lighter-weight, increasingly sheer, and stretch recovery textiles that are robust enough to withstand the demands of menswear, there seems to be a quiet revolution going on.

Accessories Direction

In recent seasons there has been a stark, linear quality to many of the key themes, but now we see a shift towards a more handcrafted and individual aesthetic. This is a season rich in texture, tone and detail, drawing on far-ranging inspiration that takes us from dry desert landscapes to artisan market squares. Where texture is not so significant, print and pattern take over.

Footwear Direction

Humanity is in flux. No longer are people sitting around waiting for better times to come. They go out to look for them. This means everything is constantly changing, never solidifying but staying fluid. Different motives underly this new ‘Great Trek’, all based on Maslowian needs. Some move for physiological needs, others for safety. Then, there are those who move on the lookout for belonging, esteem and self-actualization. We can see these needs in all of our footwear trend stories.


WINTER 17/18

Casualwear Forecast

This season we muse on concepts of otherworldliness for our forecasts: futures that are not as yet confirmed, but futures that fascinate and inspire nonetheless. We start our journey inspired by new notions of gender, and then move on to exploring our human selves by imagining how we could build new communities, divorced from technology, in worlds that are yet to be created.


Sportswear Forecast

Sportswear ramps up its high performance benefits in a winter wrapping that belies its technical prowess. Seemingly more at home on the runway than the running track, and less fast fashion than go-fast fashion, traditional category distinctions are further blurred by multipurpose silhouettes and layering driven by user needs and desires rather than specific sporting function.
