The trends announced for the international autumn-winter season of 2018/19 are:
#1 L’INIZIO – The beginning
At the beginning of the new season, we let time flow freely and we embrace the already cold scent of the coming winter. Autumn arrives with long and dark lights and light golden tones, in addition to different shades.
#2 TEMPO PER SCOLLEGARE – Time stops
Time stops and proposes a reunion with our deepest thoughts that become strong and dramatic. Thus, giving way to the season that brings dark shades of blue and purple that connect with the organic colour of orange.
#3 NEL CORSO DEL TEMPO – Time flies
Time flies, and our lingering, mature thoughts advance the emergence of moving surfaces from the world of technics and industry, composed of geometric shapes inspired by the faint light of winter. Monochromatic colours are blended, flowing and intertwining with clear and calm hues.
#4 IL CORSO – Time passes
Time passes. The colours near the brown of the earth, red of the winter fruits and those that brought us the evolution of billions of years. They do not seem to be altered and they paint archaeological forms sorted randomly over time.
