1940’s | Trends | Drapers

Wartime-inspired silhouettes were rife this season, and provided an interesting contrast to the more futuristic details we saw. The fit and flare look was updated through houndstooth fabrics and extra waspish waists at Alexander McQueen and with skinny belts and bright gathered fabrics at Lanvin. Hermes opted for buttery leather on double breasted jackets with raglan sleeves and sexy pencil skirts and elsewhere long coats came printed and edged in fur.

COSMOWORLDS | Clariant ColorWorks 2009 – Linking Color to Cultural Trends – Colour Trends

The 2009 edition of ColorForward focuses on four key societal trends:

* Grow Your Own Future recognizes that people have begun to take personal responsibility for environmental issues, making positive changes to improve the world we share.

* Global Repositioning acknowledges the growing influence of Asian traditions and cultures as well as the enhanced cross-cultural connections made possible by the Internet and modern communications media.

* Duality develops from the way in which people today accept and even celebrate multiple facets of their own personality, embracing opposing concepts and synthesizing different ideas and influences into a new whole.

* Mosaic reflects how strict global identities are loosening their hold on people, allowing enlightened intermingling of ideas and ethnic influences without losing unique cultural roots.
