In anticipation of the Spring edition taking place 17-19 January at London’s Olympia, Top Drawer has revealed its key SS16 trends across the home, gift, fashion and craft – sure to inspire buyers attending this weekend on the hunt for covetable, commercial pieces for summer collections.
Lustrous Allure, a metallic trend hot on the heels of the Dulux Colour of the Year for 2016, Cherished Gold, sees an array of metallic tones that look equally beautiful by themselves, or as a base or accent to other colours while Blush Hues follows the fashion-led trend for all things pink, with shades from Barbie through to Ladurée macaroons.
Summer Living is the trend to follow to discover products with a summer vibe that will appeal throughout the year while those with an adventurous spirit will love the Intrepid Explorer trend for travel-inspired products for home and away.
Those who appreciate balanced colour, shape and form will favour the Modern Geometric trend, where sharp surface patterns present themselves across a vast range of products throughout the show.
Getting back to basics never looked so good: simple, clean lines and textural finishes distinguishes the trend we call Rustic Utilitarian , whilst Add Character is the trend for your inner fun-child to discover a world of character-led retail products that customers will love.
Top Drawer will present a carefully edited, global cross-section of products from over 1000 brands and designers across interior accessories, outdoor living, stationery & greetings, wellbeing , children’s, fashion accessories and jewellery at the UK’s leading design-led buying event.
