2017: Look Ahead - Fashion

As we predicted, active, inclusive and individual were key influences in 2016 – set against the backdrop of a fashion industry in a state of flux and in need of recalibration. All three of our key trends for 2017 are reactions to more uncertain times ahead – with pragmatism, dissent and the cocoon of nostalgia providing appropriate antidotes to an unsettling global picture.

The ongoing, underlying influences of inclusivity and individuality also cross over those three trends and provide a sub-textual continuum to support key evolutions. Meanwhile, active will continue to be a focus, with comfort gaining traction as the number one priority in fashion purchases.
