Apparently, calculating the trends for the next season when people, like retailers, are buying for Fall now is some sort of equation, like the quadratic formula, or pi.
Yes, this is true. Apparently, there are a bunch of monkies that sit around in a room making calculations about market trends and they use that to predict consumer buying patterns and determine what shoes women like me will want to wear 6 months from now. Hmmm..
So, here is what the “experts” are saying will be the big trends for Fall 2010 here.
Blah Blah Blah is the synopsis of what the link above says…
Now, here is my expert trend predictions:
1. Combining Elegance with Industry will be a big trend. You’ll see it in the way designers combine a classic suede high heel pump with a timberland boot style sole- like in these L.A.M.B. pumps.
Or, perhaps these Prada pumps….
2. Zippers on everything: The trend is an emphasis on zippers. You’ll see this in booties, knee high boots, sandals, whatever. It’s also in line with the industrial-style trend. Funny enough, it’s like an Industrial Revolution has hit footwear design- but it still hasn’t hit the way they do manufacturing…can we say, “lack of innovation”- hmm, I don’t think even that will cut how slow the biz is moving in comparison.
Take for instance these unique open toe booties with zipper pockets and embellishments. You can get them on Amazon.
Really loving these Giuseppe Zanotti pumps above by the way. Or these…
Zanotti seems to be way into the zipper thing.
3. Unique platforms will be fun trend you’ll see as well.
That’s all I have for now my friends.
