Trend Area: Ars Sutoria and tag it! by gds present the Shoe and Accessories Trends for Spring/Summer 2015

What trends will be driving the shoe and accessories sector in the coming season? The answer to this question was given by Ars Sutoria in cooperation with tag it! by gds at the Trend Area in Hall 17. In this area especially set up for the occasion the Trend Institute provided trade visitors with guidance on trend-focused ordering over three days of the trade fair. In its inspiring and illustrative stand design the Trend Area showcased the four current trends developed by the Ars Sutoria Research Team in collaboration with leading suppliers of materials and accessory components:

Gran Prix

This theme is inspired by racing cars, sport and speed. Innovative design paired with performance and high-tech materials project a sporty yet luxurious look for big cities. Mesh and stretch fabrics dominate the picture here. Striking ingredients of the colour palette – in line with the racing car cosmos – are various metallic finishes. These are also found on crocodile and patent leather. The soles are sporty and flat or thick chunky platforms.

Sweet Paradise

This trend theme is also outdoor oriented but draws on inspirations from travel and surfing sub-culture. Tropical influences like music, dance and even a touch of voodoo are the hallmarks of this relaxed natural look. In terms of colour the range is caught between earthy and natural shades with green and brown nuances. They contrast with savage floral and natural prints. Leather comes braided or with embossed patterns. Decorative details captivate us with coarse chain links and seemingly weathered metals with a patina look.

Gallery Pop

Young and colourful is the slogan for Gallery Pop. Inspirations here come from Pop-Art and pop music as well as creative avant-garde and the cartoon cosmos. Mixing all types of styles is just as important here as experimenting with elements of both good taste and bad taste. In terms of colour things get loud – with colour blocking and neon highlights. Details in a galaxy look, a wild pattern mix and even printed transparent plastics feature in this theme. Soles in this theme are thick and multi-coloured.

Fashion Killer

The Fashion Killer theme proposes a look caught somewhere between futurism and opulence. Stone and nude tones compete with brilliant gemstone colours such as violet, turquoise or raspberry red. Also in evidence are shining gold and silver as well as glitter galore. Even paste gems are used – almost aggressively – in these opulent details. Brocades and metallic leather are particularly striking protagonists at the forefront of materials. As regards soles, this theme finally also features thinner heels and feminine wedges.
