Technical digital theme prompts the rise of unfocused prints and injects new vitality into flowers. Painting, twisting and layering bring rich intonation and visual effects to flowers.
The Philippine artist Olan Ventura has created a number of acrylic paintings in the tradition of 17th century Dutch still life. His paintings duplicate symbolic details in Vase by Jan Davidsz de Heem in 1660. Its ragged edges drop to grapes and other parts. His works are imbued with twists, abstraction and artistic feel.
Ink painting flowers are stacked on the blurred and painted background, strongly artistic. Crossed brushstrokes create a blurred and unfocused visual effect. Single lines draw layers.
Light blurred flowers dominate and pair with twisted, diagonal and waterfall fusion techniques to appear on the twisted and blurred background, delivering a psychedelic and mystical feel.
Under the epidemic situation, the frenzy of fashion week is no longer reappearance. Instead, it is a digital release mode with different time. At the same time, fashion design is quietly changing. From the original luxury to today’s simple and lasting, fashion style is adapting to the social situation, have you found it? Of course, for others, they will still choose to invest in bold and gorgeous fashion works in today’s environment, just like the crystal shoes of the brand AMINA MUADDI.
Presumably, in recent months, except for the occasional video conferencing and personalized styling, the rest of the people live in casual or sports attire. What will people look like when the world recovers after the epidemic?
After the upheaval, some of the most interesting moments in fashion have emerged. Just like a group of design masters who deliberately restore the elegant, sexy and charming charm of women after World War II, Christian Dior is the leader in this historical revolution.
Clothes can reflect the state of the world and people’s inner thoughts. After the economic collapse, bright will feel something wrong. At the same time, people will tend to value things that are well made and durable. Facing the uncertainty of the market, the investment choice will be more serious and different.
“When we get out of the epidemic, we want beautiful things,”Alessandro Michele, Gucci‘s creative director, said recently.
Sarah Staudinger, staud designer, said: “we’re looking for classic designs that transcend the seasons, slowing down to make fashion more sustainable.”
In which direction will fashion lean? Is it close to crazy charm or more restrained luxury? The answer may not be the same.
Retro, denim are long lasting fashion classic! The collision between retro and present, always explore the infinite possibilities of classic elements in the future development, showing a unique temperament. Retro large lapel, a traditional status symbol, helps to lengthen the neck line, improve the overall thin effect, but also gives exquisite clothing charm.
The lattice or stripe style is classic and simple, lasting for a long time in every season. The trend has never left the fashion stage and has a permanent fashion charm. By different colors of grain splicing, you can achieve innovative classics, flexible for any collocation, any occasion, high economic benefits!
“Clothes are simple, but simple concepts are used to fight against the chaos of nothing,” Miuccia Prada said of her collection. This is a time for seriousness, reflection and reflection. What do we do, what is fashion, what are we doing here? “
What is fashion? Fashion can last forever! Durable denim elements are durable fashion, elegant and cool mix and match style, achieve a unique fashion attitude, but also provide high-value clothing options for the return of normal life after the epidemic.
Petah Marian, senior strategist at WGSN insight, a trend forecasting company, believes that when we study the purpose of fashion and the meaning of luxury goods, we are entering an era of reflection. People have redefined luxury through the epidemic, she said. Living in a society that has been shrouded by the epidemic for nearly a year, health and peace, community and interpersonal relationship have become more and more valued elements.
Marian believes that many people will get rid of the symbolic flashiness and replace them with valuable things in the context of economic austerity. They can move towards luxury through more tactile perception and humanistic aspects, such as the softness of clothes, or understand how garment makers make clothes.
After the epidemic, brands tend to choose the earth color that can soothe people’s hearts, let the audience feel the nature and tranquility given by nature, and also revere everything in the nature. Color can reflect the real feelings of the audience’s heart, but also can pacify the mind. The warm, natural and healing colors of the earth are neither gorgeous nor flashy. They convey a low-key sense of closeness. They are full of peaceful atmosphere and warm the hearts of the audience after the epidemic.
Tiffany Hsu, fashion buying director of online luxury retailer mytheresa, believes that durable luxury goods will be the investment trend in the current fashion sector.
“I think we’re going to see a more restrained version of luxury, more about quality and permanence that you can wear at any time, which is what modern luxury really means,” she said
“After the closure of the city, people will be looking for simple and fashionable works like khaite, works like the row and Jil sander that are very suitable for indoor and outdoor use,” said Tiffany Hsu. We’ve also seen a rise in sales of high-end jewelry, which is a very permanent fashion again. “
In the end, timeless works will become our most cherished fashion works. For one person, it could be feather heels; for another, it could be perfect, tailored black pants. In fact, for everyone, it will mean different things for everyone to be well dressed and exquisite to step into society again, but this is definitely something to celebrate!
Craft and detail are of great importance in A/W 20/21. Compared with clothing silhouette, more designers convey their ingenious thoughts to cautious consumers through craft changes and creative details. Influenced by current trends, the market is more favorable to bold, eye-catching, individual, simple and versatile craft and detail. Rubbing, discharge print, digital all-over print, and combined crafts of offset print gradually enter into the public view.
Rubbing has a long history in China. It is a hand-made reproduction of a carved or stone-cut surface by covering the surface tightly with a piece of paper and rubbing in black or colored material. Now, a Berlin company, Raubdruckerin has done something creative. In more than 20 cities, they put dyestuff on manhole covers, fences and the rest public facilities, then directly cover them with clothes and even backpacks. The idea of printing the manhole covers on T-shirts came from Emma France Raff. A decade ago, as she traveled around the world, she discovered manhole covers were like unique business cards handed out by cities, which triggered her desire to leave the mark as a memorial.
Discharge print is breathable, visible but impalpable. But it can only be printed on pure cotton fabrics dyed by polymer reactive dyes which can be costly, rather than on light-colored fabrics (Watermark can be used as a substitution).
Variegated blurred patterns sweep catwalks for S/S 2019, and become hot currently. Each item has blurred color blocks, with a simple silhouette to be unique, and add commercial value to shirts and hooded sweatshirts in A/W 20/21. Illusive looks and blurred elements will be softer in A/W 20/21, fit for avant-garde young consumers. Besides, Alexander McQueen and Palm Angels use blurred patterns boldly.
Escape from the pressure of the city, embark on a journey to the distance, and find a blend of youth and nature. As Fernando Pessoa wrote in The Book of Disquiet: I would like to live a different life in a faraway land. We roam freely under the sky, search the comfortable shore of the deep heart. Every time we set out, it is to meet a better yourself. Whether it is the original intention of human, or the call of nature, the outdoor world has become a desirable spiritual place. Embrace nature, relax at weekends, connect with nature, we interpret the casual outdoor look and revive mind with another life style.
The 96th Pitti Uomo menswear exhibition was held in Florence. The “I Go Out” exhibition area of outdoor sportswear made its third appearance. This time, I Go Out worked with And Wander (one of the three major Yama Brands in Japan), Hi Tec (an outdoor brand founded in the UK by Dutch Frank van Wezel) and Topo Designs (founded by Americans Jedd Rose and Mark Hansen) to put on a fashion show. The show was particular about materials and functionality, displaying fashionable designs of “Go Out” and interpreting the beauty of nature through clothing.
Marble is the metamorphic rock formed by high temperature and high pressure in the earthcrust. Its section can form a variety of colorful and natural texture with different patterns. Marble patterns are blurred and abstract, with the soft pink tones to be unique in outdoor clothing.
The post-80s and post-90s are the group who first contact and become the most enthusiastic about arcade games. In 1971, the world’s first arcade was born in a computer laboratory in the United States, originating in bars. With a history of 38 years, arcade game is the oldest video game. Although arcade games fade in the rapidly changes of video games, their grainy pixel images dominate the childhood memories of those born in the 1980s and 1990s.
Arcade games remind of the surrounding streets. Supreme and Agnes use the soft focus effect to present the retro streets of the 1970s-1990s. The lettered lamp is also the classical element of current Chinese fashion.
The familiar mosaic game interface can be used to clothing as placement patterns, bringing a dazzling and retro feeling.
The outbreak is spreading, and all Chinese people are making efforts. After the outbreak, people may have different life philosophy, and may focus more on health and nature. So there will be a new pattern trend. Many designers and illustrators also create works about moments of the plague.
Currently, there are no styles about the plague in the market. So we recommend to apply Chinese fashion patterns to leisure or street fashion clothing. Young people are more likely to participate and involve in current events. Designers can start from humorous, gossip, popular and warning patterns.
Designers can use distressing, splashing, graffiti, letter, decoration and floral to make Chinese character patterns more superior. Characters and design techniques need to be positive rather than being dark. The floral pattern below is Wuhan’s city flower, plum blossom, which will help to go through the dark.
Frozen is set in the fictional kingdom of Arendelle which is inspired by Norwegian spectacular natural scenery, including snow-capped mountains and tranquil fiords. In terms of characters’ costumes, the animation team also draws many inspirations from the unique architectures, culture and traditions of Norway.
As the snow queen, Elsa’s dress shows an ethereal and pure sense with the help of crystal clear snow. And sequins, beads and rhinestones are applied to the fabric to make the dress sparkling. And the pattern is mainly the snowflake. The hemline is equipped with plain geometric and linear patterns. While Anna’s dress tends to have a warm quality sense. The symmetric floral patterns and fringes are decorated in buttons. And color-blocked geometric patterns are added to cuffs and the neckline.
Elsa exudes infinite charm under the sky or in the snowfield. The posters show the most gripping scenes to arouse people’s curiosity about the story of Arendelle. Anna and Elsa will go deep into the mysterious magical forest to discover the truth about the source of Elsa’s magic, and the long-hidden secrets of the kingdom of Arendelle, a magical kingdom with elements of wind, fire water, and soil.
The illustration of big color blocks gains much attention. Simple color blocks turn into fun patterns through ingenious combinations. Houseware is necessary in our daily life. The pattern which focuses on trifles in daily life enters the public view.
Inspirations are from works of Morandi and Matisse. The pattern uses abstract color blocks and harmonious colors to combine the florals with houseware, and it is also a beautiful and artistic work. Applique and positioned print can be applied to the dress or jacquard on Resort knitwear.
Inspirations come from meals. The popular home tones make food illustrations lovely. Geometric color blocks and the color match make the simple food pattern appealing.
As a hot element in the fashion world, tie-dye is still the mainstream, but it tends to turn towards softer colors. Hazy effect, soft focus and ombre effect develop quickly in the fashion world, so tie-dye is upgraded. Watercolor, digital feel and ombre effect are combined together to bring an ethereal visual effect. The style with all-over irregular colors is especially fit to be expressed by digital print which can create rich colors, natural ombre and fine textures. The tie-dye developed by digital print can well display the charm of hand-made tie-dye.
Multi-colored tie-dye and reactive dip-dye bring a stronger visual impact with the help of high saturated colors. Blurring effect takes on irregular and asymmetric look, breaking conventional aesthetics.
Reactive dip-dye and distortion dye appeal consumers. Soft prints are overlapped and integrated to bring a watercolor effect, making the print more abstract.
The ombre texture renews tie-dye. The washed appearance and watercolors soften candy-like pastel colors, which adds vitality to design and becomes more suitable for young consumers.
Energetic bright colors enhance the layered sense, combines vague patterns with glossy fabrics, and heightens the blurred effect. Therefore, the visual picture is more vivid.
Wild zebras have fascinated the fashion world with their black-and-white colors and fluent and psychedelic lines. In hot Africa, the surface is so hot during the day that the hot air evaporates from below. In this case, the zebra’s white and black stripes make it hard to be seen. The zebra’s stripes act as a perfect camouflage to avoid predators like the lion. Classic black and white is practical and good-looking, and they can create infinite styles by designers.
Balenciaga combines zebra stripes with MIDI elements, allowing the classic to coexist with modern psychedelic elements. Anais Jourden transforms conventional animal prints, integrates textural details and other grounds, and brings a little MIDI feel to cater to youngsters. Pamella Roland breaks the zebra stripe and reorganizes it to be geometric, quite modern. Chanel uses fleece, with black and white textures to be vivid.
Original lines and textures should be broken, transformed or combined with other graphics to create a dizzy visual impact and to integrate zebra stripes with the MIDI style.
Zebra stripes are artistically processed. The craft is in line with hand-drawing and free graffiti, novel and chic.
