The divide between digital and real through advancements in technology sharpens our desire for uncanny design thus blurring these two ideas. An appetite for peculiar, almost absurd-like aesthetics exhibits an uninhibited self-expression that veers purposefully away from perfection. There is a sense of excitement and surrealism vacillating through this trend that incorporates unexpected, underlying darkness as well. The most important question we ask is: How does it make us feel?

  • Pulsating colors evoke an abandoned sense of fearlessness and self-expression
  • Punched-up cool tones of turquoise and spearmint unexpectedly complement warm yellow and apricot, as vivid red keeps it striking and dynamic
  • Adding a twist is persimmon and royal blue, incorporating unconventional versatility
  • Fabrics are exaggerated with over-the-top proportions, audacious colors and textures, extravagant jacquards, embroidery, and indulgent prints that are meant to overwhelm
The ubiquitous notion of utopia is a common theme as we yearn to live differently in times of upheaval. However, its evolution this season is distinctive as we tap into the regenerative power of nature while compelling society to provide healing energy in return. Cultural creators see this energy as transformative. The notion of collective transformative experiences brings forth new ways of living with purpose, enhancing everything from health to creativity.

  • User-friendly palette with infinite combinations that adapt to the product or vision of the creative
  • Reassuring nature-inspired tones are healing as warm shades of apricot and brick invigorate
  • Teal, purple-tinged blue, and pink are endearingly whimsical and complement any color in the palette for combinations that range from retro to crafted
  • Fabrics incorporate defined natural patterns, hypnotic dyeing, and print effects as well as a modern spin on utility and color blocking
Sometimes the most radical change we can make is to step back. New, insightful, and meaningful lifestyles evolve from inspired opportunities that underwhelm with minimal distraction. Our meandering minds organically wander, with the idea to ignite a “soft curiosity” that is restorative and impactful. A new phase of wellness in which we “step out of the race” ignites a quiet rebellion that humbly inspires.
