The Christmas 2016 Design Direction Wonderland is a contemporary take on seasonal decorations and accessories. We identify how this eccentric and playful direction has reached the market.
- Saturated candy pastel: baby pink, mint green and light blue soften the palette in this direction which is otherwise mid-tone heavy. The vibrant colours have a synthetic feel and are occasionally lifted up with metallics such as a light bronze.
- Geometric shapes and colour blocks are a recurring theme showing up in decorations particularly. Packaging and advertising take advantage of this graphic direction’s playful and bold characteristics.
- Angular and minimalist forms feature speckled finishes with a DIY-aesthetic, giving decorations a handmade feel.
