January was a whirlwind month for the Trend Bible team. We visited some of Europe’s most exciting interiors trade events including Maison et Objet and Interiors UK, and we also created bespoke Trend Features for Top Drawer, the UK’s leading event for design-led gifts, lifestyle and fashion accessories.
For those of you who couldn’t get down to the show in London, here we are sharing our features with the mydeco.com blog readers. We focused on creating sector specific features at the show in January, depicting trends for autumn/winter 2012/13: Stationery, Children’s, Wellbeing and Fashion Accessories – all seen as emerging sectors at Top Drawer.
We created a trend feature displaying six prominent trends for Stationery for autumn/winter 2012/13: Luxe, Synth, Monotype, Papercraft, Infrared and Patriot:
For our children’s trend feature, we focused on a single trend entitled Grow Your Own – an important trend across kids product and apparel, as parents become increasingly aware of the benefits of home grown produce and nurturing through food.
A slick and clinical aesthetic is an overriding trend for Wellbeing products and packaging for autumn/winter 2012-13, so we created the Beauty Lab for our Wellbeing trend feature, referencing the extremes of the beauty industry.
Our Fashion Accessories feature displayed four key trends for Fashion Accessories for the upcoming autumn/winter 2012/13 season: Graphic Clash, English Heritage, Beauty Lab and Faded Grandeur. More detail about these trends can be found over at the Trend Bible blog.
