Eyes To The Sky: Trend Spotting. Trade Show Round-Up.

Eyes To The Sky: Trend Spotting. Trade Show Round-Up.

Our time in Las Vegas was brief but busy!! In two days we covered Pool, S.L.A.T.E. at Magic, Capsule and Project. We saw many brands and took note of tons of trends both current and future.

The Crop is HOT: The crop top and jacket has been showing off the past few seasons but was in FULL FORCE this time around. Many brands offered there basic “t-shirts” or tanks on cropped versions and with t-shirt hems rising so are jackets. With the hi-waist trend we’ve been working with in recent years it only makes sense that our tops would get shorter. *please note I was properly displaying this trend with my Cheap Monday t-shirt worn with hi-waist vintage Z.Cavaricci’s on day one of trade show madness ;)

Floral Fantasy: Floral prints are still going strong from tops to bottoms to kicks to sh!t kickers. Don’t think that flowers are just for girly girls and don’t get it twisted, these prints are powerful but not all “flower power”. Get into it and make Blossom proud.

Heritage Brands: Brands with a long history, the brands our mom and dad used to wear, the brands you wore as a kid, show they have staying power in the world of fashion.

We also noticed some of the usual suspects: more pyramid studs, more motorcycle jackets, more exposed zippers, chiffon fabrics and sheer fabrications are showing up and as to be expected black is still holding reign supreme.

A most refreshing trends was back to basics in the footwear world. Thanks to the likes of companies like Nike, who have helped to kill the sneaker game by over saturating the market, we can rest easy in simple canvas sneakers. Brands like 80%20, Keds, Bensimon, Tretorn and Keep offer up budget friendly and style savvy offerings that are a breath of fresh air in the frooty loopy sneaker market these days. Keeping it real simple is a key trend that we’re happy to see!

Their Spring/Summer 2010 collection definitely packs it in with something for everyone, from your best friend’s dorky parents to the hipsters that you often confuse for homeless people. There is a series with Oxford stripes made from men’s wear shirting fabric, a series made of linen, a Tyvek trump l’oeil slip on, and even super soft enzyme washed sneakers that when slipped on should feel like you’ve been kicking around in them for ages.

If that the new fabrics and finishes weren’t enough for you, Keds  has teamed up with Opening Ceremony to introduce a line of their classic lace ups with a bandana print and toggle closures on the laces.  According to the Opening Ceremony site the collection is inspired by America, hence the denim, nautical influences on the laces, and use of primary colors.

Keds Eco Friendly Shoe In Support of Artists For Humanity


keds
Keds has been around as long as I can remember but they’ve come a long way since the basic white sneaker that I grew up wearing every summer. Keds just launched an eco-friendly shoe, supporting a Boston non-profit charity, Artists for Humanity. Artists for Humanity provides professional art experience for the local community through after school programming. The aspiring artists designed a shoe to express their concerns about the environmental impact of bottled water consumption, which is reflected in the water bottle graphics on the shoes.

Here are the details on the compostion of the shoe: 100% Organic uppers, 25% Recycled uppers, 25% Recycled rubber outsole, and water based printing inks. $1 per pair sold will be donated to Artists for Humanity and the shoe will retail for $50.

More facts on bottled water consumption after the jump . . .
