Top Drawer partners with global insight agency, Flamingo, to unveil the trends set to captivate consumers next
Top Drawer is thrilled to announce their partnership with global insight agency, Flamingo, who have identified four key trends ahead of the A/W19 edition of the show, drawn from their ongoing analysis of the larger cultural shifts that are driving trends more broadly.
These shifts include Omniwellness, which is the expansion of wellness beyond physical fitness into a more holistic space, and Harmonious Systems, which sees people, in the face of imminent climate collapse, seeking products that bring innovation and nature together in harmony.
Grounded Rituals: A natural autumnal, earthy, tactile vibe that is tied to nature and wellbeing. These everyday items are elevated through the craft of honest materials, simplicity and uniqueness. The paired back palette enhances the quiet rituals of this restorative environment.
Introspection: Soft winter pales and warm neutrals create meditative and conceptual clean palettes, grounded in natural materials. Mixed textures and collections of objects speak to the multiple inputs from our surroundings, dialled down into introspective muted colours and calm tonal blocking.
Modern Vestige: Classic shapes are given contemporary looks through juxtapositions of emerging tech with heritage craft: from 3D printing to etched surfaces. Hard materials are given delicate detailing that speaks to a future archaeology of treasured items. Rich textures and luxe gleaming metals add sumptuous elements to rough and irregular black surfaces of unearthed pasts.
Soft Assembly: Imperfect shapes that are soft and rounded add an irreverence to a blue based autumnal palette. The retro modern feel is both reassuring and playful with pop brights in smooth finishes and graphic prints.
Visitors to the show, running 8-10 September at Olympia London, will get to enjoy various interpretations of these trends, as leading retailers and lifestyle publications—Selfridges, Oliver Bonas, Heal’s and Sheerluxe—bring them to life at Top Drawer’s Trends Café.
