04 Nov Anything Goes The Euro trend report: Spring ’17
A spout of sweltering weather in Düsseldorf, Germany, wasn’t the only thing bringing the heat to the recent GDS show exhibiting Spring/Summer ’17 collections. Newness was the buzzword among 740 exhibiting brands that debuted collections across categories spanning couture to comfort. The common thread? Gender-neutral (and often unisex) styles refused to take sides. Trends like metallic brogues for women were borrowed from the men, while usually female-dominated styles—such as colorful canvas prints—were a popular trend for guys. Of course, some mega-sparkle was thrown in for good measure, ladies only—for now.
