Ready for a colour explosion? Grab your sunglasses! Because today’s trends are all about colourful prints, reflective materials and technological creations!
All colours of the rainbow and more: from pastels to 90’s neon versions. Anything goes! But, be sure to be totally cool and add a touch of yellow. And the good news is that you are free to combine the brightest colours with earthy tones and easy-going pastels. Monochrome outfits are hot. As are all uni-colour outfits. But, no worries if you prefer the more expressive stuff! Anything goes! So, why not achieve the looks with some awesome 60’s prints and flower explosion
Shapes and materials
Do not forget to stash your pockets with loads of useful and, above all, trendy gadgets. There will be more than enough pockets and multi-zippers this season to do so. The handbag is set to become the fashion statement item. Whether it is by way of geometric shapes, colourful prints or what you carry with you in a transparent bag. In fact, transparent materials reflect your open attitude. Oversharing and showing off the trendy stuff you are carrying with you – even the design key ring – is totally trending.
And what about shoes made from seaweed or eco-friendly packaging materials made from mushrooms? New bio-degradable materials and awesome textures are fulfilling the needs of those consumers interested in waste reduction and recycling.
High-performance, sustainable fabrics
Lightweight, strong, sustainable and intelligent: fabrics are undergoing a true revolution as consumers demand easy-fit clothing suited to their dynamic, environmentally conscious lifestyles. Recycled and sustainable materials, fair trade and responsibly made clothing are the choice of increasingly conscious consumers.
Where do pet products fit in?
But, how do these trends impact pet products? New materials and fashion trends are making the lives of pets and their owners that bit easier! How about a see-through carrying bag for your pet: allowing it to observe its surroundings and enjoy each other’s company. Trendy pockets and zippers provide convenient space to carry snacks or pet gadgets when you are out and about. Innovative fabrics offer pets new heights of UV and rain protection. In fact, reflective satins and other ‘bling’ fabrics are set to add new, exciting design possibilities. For instance, the application of lightweight satins, gems and rhinestones in collars as beautiful eye catchers.
And beyond clothes, colourful baskets, coats, pillows and gadgets with prints and in all shapes and sizes combine perfectly with any owner’s interior.
Last, but not least, is packaging. Pet products are ideally suitable for biodegradable packaging and things are being done with plant fibre pulp that were simply not possible only a few years ago!
Breakthrough technologies and nifty ecological solutions are sure to point the way in exciting future designs!
