Many buyers have confirmed the importance of Paris for early trend information and a must order platform. Paris has further expanded its status.
“Tropical Hiking”, modern outdoor looks and newly interpreted workwear collections with an authentic, sturdy look were the strongest themes.
In addition to the highly functional, “hunting jackets”, ethno elemts are very present in almost every collection.
Streetwear a la “Vetements” is still on the forefront: bold and clear wording prints, tough primary color contrast allovers, and fantasyprints on bags, tees and shoes.
