Oracle: Main Image


In our FW 19/20 Visionary trend Oracle, we take a step into a seductive new world where mystery and a sense of foreboding luxury create an alluring underworld. Darkness and a whisper of the unknown inspire a rich complexity that elevates the beauty of high-end fashion and design, and the nuances of the natural world invoke a new sense of reverence. Notions of groupthink underscore this trend with a new approach at uniform dressing and elevated basics. Music and style icons like Michele Lamy and Karin Dreije demonstrate how mystical, feminine power can evoke compelling forms and textures that tap into our primal beings and take us further into the depths of consciousness.

Oracle: Pursuit of Happiness Trend

This cultural trend explores how the global community is redefining what success means by challenging the traditional routes taken to get there.

The flexibility of freelance culture and the idea of access over ownership contribute to the romance of a nomadic life.

We are seeking rest and deeper life meaning during our vacations; off the grid travel, retreats, and shared experiences are in demand.

There is also a dawning of consciousness emerging in the workforce.

The material stories within Oracle forgo simple forms for elevated configurations that are reminiscent of the mystical underworld. Refinement is found in floral satins and waxed furs while unconventional beauty is cherished in decayed leather and unraveled knits. The Structure is key, as crafted wovens and pressed materials form with dark complexity in new and alluring shapes.
