Sourcing Trend Direction | Spring-Summer 2020: Flash

In Flash, the pulsating excitement of the 1980's influences a modern day look that's all about amplified color, sensual movement, and a fluid culture. The strong contrasts of the decade mean luxury and grit co-exist in a place that is as exciting as it is edgy. A renewed fascination with ballroom culture puts the focus on the many subcultures that exist on the fringe in order to have a place to belong. A fascination with the quirky charm of 80s Sci Fi influences lustrous surfaces and pastel neons. Finally, a slew of today's designers show how the toughness of the streets can inspire a surprising level of softness and femininity. 

DERIVED FROM THE MACRO TREND: 

SELFISHLY AWARE 

Sourcing Trend Direction | Spring-Summer 2020: Flash

Selfishly aware looks at the cause and reaction of a growing portion of our lives being lived on social media. Being constantly connected leads to being constantly informed, which can be a positive thing when pertaining to increased awareness of global issues and using social platforms for good. Our visually driven culture has led us to the "Instagrammable design movement" where products and spaces are created with instant photo appeal to be shared on social media. We are living in a time when there are so many versions of reality, real life is labeled "RR" for real reality.

MATERIALS

Drawing inspiration from the vibrant and pulsating era of the 1980's dynamic materials and plush surfaces work to support the body everywhere from the dance floor to the boardroom. With an underlying party ready spirit, showy metallics and glittered surfaces add a playful twist to everyday looks. We celebrate contrast as high glamour collides with hard edged styles for an explosion of aesthetics.
