Fashion’s all about forecasting, predicting and luring the consumer. And because that is our true world of fashion, the trends are announced by Fortune magazine! So roll out the red carpet, here come the 2008 fashion trends:
Accessories blend into one: the scarf. So if you expected the trends for handbags, shoes, any other leather small accessory, don’t! Because for the next year, scarves play the tune! Colorful, printed, or simply jersey, scarves will rock the fashion boat for 2008.
Oh, did we talked about shoes early on? Mmm, well.. Shoes is a kind perspective for the next hot fashion 2008 trend: the fashion sneaker. My wild guess is that’s all about branding, again! Since haute-couture is no longer interesting for the average-normal-client and since they’ve gone mad about luring new markets (east european, asian) into the accessory field with names all-over the bags mainly, seems that the marketing department found a new way to sneak under our skin: sneakers. (phew!)
See what number three brings us: well, pretty much to see, indeed: the see-through clothes. If that’s a hot fashion trend for 2008, then we’re really in trouble! 2007 was all about color and now we had so much of it that we’re washing it ALL out? Heck! I’ll even put a curtain on, see what that fashion hottie’s all about!
At number four, after all that scarf-sport-looking-trough, we’re into scuba diving! Industrial fabrics are the next IT! Rubberized materials, anti microbial outfits (damn! Is there a bio-war coming and they don’t know how to announce it?).
Number five is our lucky one! It seems that 2008 is gonna be sport and work out and then spa-consumer-temple. Tomorrow’s hangouts are the fifth hot fashion (?!) trend for next year. Meaning that soon we’ll get up, put a see trough curtain on, get into the spa, then step into the hairdresser’s, cosmetic shrine, then up one level to get a proper see trough dress and maybe the latest luxury sneaker, then up one level to the library checking out the latest Nobel-prized novel, then catch a bite and hurry down to the dj lounge and enjoy the rest of the evening in this temple of fashion, art and music!
How’s 2008 fashion sound to you?
