Check out the new prints and graphics trends that you will see on the SS/18 runways, incorporated in the Slow Futures Vision.
Slow Futures develops the minimalist story, with a future informed by the past. Editorial graphics for S/S 18 mix paint and paper, photo and typography to create carefully curated prints with a sentimental sensibility.
Editorial graphics are updated with contemporary techniques such as photo splicing and masked or interrupted type. A nostalgic aesthetic is communicated through hand-rendered details and natural textures, while the essence remains minimal and delicately composed. A muted pastel palette refreshes the look for spring.
The return to slow process and craftsmanship celebrates a stripped-back approach to design. Themes of raw minimalism and abstraction a big influence. Sculpted shapes inspire soft geometrics for spring, with subtle textures that offset sharp angular lines.
Less is more for these carefully curated prints. Focus on negative space and masking techniques to reveal leftover abstract shapes. Mix solid shapes with subtle watercolor textures and fine lines to transform geometrics into a softer state.

Today we introduce you two more women shoe trends for SS18, incorporated in the Kinship Vision. Check them bellow and find the details of each one.
As the act of discovery becomes intertwined with notions of wealth and luxury, space exploration will inspire a new take on sci-fi themes. Use metallic surfaces and plastic materials to put a sci-fi spin on core items, and tap into the trend for comfort with stretch materials and easy-to-wear profiles such as the block or wedge.
As the focus on wellness becomes more mainstream , so does the focus on materials that are deemed to benefit. Mineral formations evolve the trend for marble-effect materials and offer a commercial update for embellishment and detail. For a more directional look, consider using these materials for features heels.
The commercial appeal of minimalist styles remains strong, but as consumers reject the mass-produced in favor of the small-scale, a rustic quality will be key to ensuring their future appeal. Combine raw edges, crepe soles and natural leathers with wrapped ties, elasticated toplines and ruched constructions.
