Below we take an In-depth look at these trends that will drive new and exciting product developments.

Alpine Adventures

Maximalism hits the mountains, as winter-sports go bold. For A/W 23/24, combine bright, clashing colours with eye-catching all-over snow-scene graphics or bold nordic patterns in snow-ready styles. Refresh ski and après-ski styles with luxury fabrications like velour to bring a sense of opulence to the slopes.

Protective Dressing

Consumers will use clothes to create a physical barrier between themselves and the world. Built-up collars, face shielding panels and multiple layers are crafted from pillowy padding for extreme protection. Controlled volume is key for the new season. Padded layers will be wrapped and tied around the body to mimic a comforting hug. Use muted colours for transeasonal appeal.

Lady and Lord Leisure

The desire for escapism drives innovative silhouettes in the outdoor market. Take evening-wear shapes and reimagine them through the lens of outdoor apparel. Monogram prints, luxury fabrics and corsetry details complete the look.
