Slow Futures is a trend I came across on WGSN. I really like the idea of looking to the past in order to help shape the future. ‘Contrasts forged between the natural and man-made’ this is something I am eager to experiment within materials. Scrutinizing unconventional materials through unlikely combinations and testing both hand craft and technical processes. Simplicity is a key word used in this trend, which I feel is very relevant to the abstract geometry theme I am exploring.
The colour palette for this trend is quite raw and heavily influenced by the natural environment. I’m not taken back by this colour palette so I am going to research further into up coming trends and also maybe include some colours taken directly from primary influences.
