In addition to the decorative jungle excursion, there is a clear trend towards natural and experimental style, especially in women’s fashion spring / summer 2018. Skin-tight cycling shorts make the leap from the tour to the boutiques. Combined with blazers or lace, they know how to polarize. Significantly more conventional: stripes that are one of the big seasons of the season, especially because of their lengthways appearance. Those who like things a little more unusual can devote themselves to elaborately draped trench coats, transparent naked dress stylings or the equally extravagant and easy-care tendency towards plastic and vinyl.

And what is he wearing?

Paradisiacal style with jungle undertones should of course not be missing in the men’s fashion spring / summer 2018, accompanied by statement pieces. Comic and cartoon motifs, Caribbean undertones and rainbow stripes come together in wild combinations, accompanied by a real evergreen: the Hawaiian shirt. At the same time, there is an increased tendency towards naturalness, which was influenced by work and camping clothing. Non-slip materials emphasize the functionality factor, accompanied by natural, floral motifs and earth tones. If you like it a little more casual, you can dedicate yourself to Swinging Silence. Width and length with fine patterns and minimalist graphics support this calm, pleasantly unobtrusive look.

The spring / summer 2018 fashion trends are setting new highlights, and a look into the future will soon follow. From July 29 to 31, 2018, trade visitors will see the Fashion premiere what the fashionable year 2019 will bring. We can already reveal this much: It will be spectacular!
