The new normal is close to the old ways, at least when it comes to fashion. According to experts, many of the garments that will be imposed in the coming months will recall the past.
In the tones there will be an explosion of vibrant colors, which transmit joy andenergy , due to the need for a dose of optimism due to the pandemic.
The fashion consultant, says that neon tones will be present, but not with the same participation as bright ones, which will be applied in a very feminine fashion where textiles with elaborate fabric effects will be relevant.
Although the spring-summer season has always had bright colors, this year we all want to see a light, the spirit of the people is different, with more hopes and more concrete projects.
The nostalgia of the past will be reflected in the prints. “ We will see optics from the 70s, flowers, mineral veins, stripes in new tones and reinvented polka dots , all this under a watercolor concept, as if that garment were made in an artist’s workshop, as if it were personalized and made by a painter” Alvarado says.
And about the textures? “We are going to want to touch things that have added value.” That is, fabrics with peach skin effects, linen, rustic, and raw cottonfinishes . In fact, the same thing will happen with indigo: rigid ones will be sought to achieve silhouettes inspired by the fashion of the 70s (bell-bottom pants). “The theme of dresses will be lowered a little, silhouettes that are a little more practical will be sought, and androgynous silhouettes will reign in world comfort.”
Continuing with the return of trends from other times, Useche indicates that boots (medium and high cane) and ankle boots will be seen, as well as moccasins with thicker soles .
Calad says that the romantic theme will be key when it comes to clothing: lace will have a lot of participation and this will be reflected in embroidered fabrics and cotton, and in colors such as white, black and pastels.
It will also be sought, says Alvarado, that clothing be sustainable to “align ourselves with a future where nature contributes to fashion, as a conscious supplier and not as a polluting exploitation.”
. British brand Pangaia launched the Fungi collection dyed and made with mushrooms, and Vicunha , from Colombia, uses natural dyes such as residue from Italian nuts to dye garments.Added to this is the second-hand fashion that will continue to rise , in part, because people will realize that they have too many clothes in the closet that they do not wear, so they will start to get rid of some. The great conclusion is that days are coming in which minimalism will gain strength when it comes to dressing, accompanied by a lot, a lot of color.
