Kingpins Trend Direction F/W 2023
Did you catch Amy Leverton and Shannon Reddy’s FW 23/24 Trend Presentations at Kingpins Amsterdam and New York? The duo was back at it again sharing their insights and predictions with the Kingpins audience about where denim is headed — from fabrics to color to silhouettes.
Denim Dudes Fall/Winter 2023 trends covers it all —from the ’00 revival to virtual denim. If you missed their presentation or want to review it in depth, the comprehensive 82-page Kingpins Trend Direction report is available for purchase. The report covers silhouette, wash and styling on a product level, and offers guidance into values, brand strategy and actionable intelligence for brands.
Simulacrum – This story explores the concept of escapism and focuses on how the simulated reality of our online lives is meshing with our physical world more than ever before, dramatically shifting design towards darker and dystopian-like aesthetics.
The Outsiders – Emerging from our post-pandemic, home-crafted, organic-minded, psychedelic-positive world comes the increasingly popular term, Goblincore. A movement that may not be particularly high fashion, but one that speaks volumes about our shifting values in 2022.
Wonderment – As we move deeper into this decade and further from our lockdown dress codes of basics and sweats, the building blocks of everyday dressing are becoming less basic, more stylized and joyous as consumers seek to wear clothes that truly excite and spark positive emotion.
Softly – This story encompasses a kinder attitude towards apparel across all aspects of our lives. Living gently, designing with the utmost care and attention and moving through the world in a philanthropic way are essential to our future.
The complete F/W 2023 forecast with 82 pages of trend content – including key collections, styling, design details and research & inspirations – is available to purchase now. The Trend Direction content is a digital file delivered directly to your email upon purchase.
