frankfurter rundschau _ 2011 frankfurter rundschau covers the ILM trend directions...sorry its all in german....but the pictures from the official ILM press shooting (robert lichtenberg)....are amazing in any "language"....have also a look at the first blue article_ pictures.......after the jump. Weniger Schwarz, Khaki und Beige, dafür mehr grelle Farben, futuristische Formen und trendige Schnitte. Für Martin Wuttke, Fashion-Experte bei der gestern gestarteten internationalen Lederwarenmesse ILM „Winter Styles“ in Offenbach, ist klar: „Die neuen Kollektionen an Handtaschen, Schuhen und Lederbekleidung sind nicht mehr staubtrocken und für die großen Kleiderschränke, sondern frisch und progressiv.“........... Fashion-Experte Wuttke sieht das pragmatischer: „Einkäufer müssen wachsende Preise irgendwann akzeptieren.“ Gerade bei Leder und Mode habe Qualität eben ihren Preis. Mit den auf der Messe vorgestellten Kollektionen, die sich unter anderem an Science-Fiction-Filmen und am Sixties-Look orientieren, will er den Markt wieder ankurbeln. Jede neue Modeshow bringe einen neuen Trend hervor − und das fördere den Absatz.
