The New Signs of Perception


FORECAST spring/summer 2021 & beyond


Future product development will gain more from real lifestyle expectations than from plain fashion ideas.
Indication and thorough understanding of the spirit of the times is the initial step towards striking the right
chord with consumers. It all revolves around the idea of filtering out the relevant environmental factors
from the overwhelming amount of things happening in turbulent periods of time.

The question standing behind all this is: What is necessary to develop myself, my beliefs, my knowledge
and what will change society really? Style, sense of touch and surface are not sufficient any more.

In our publication we mark the most important trends for the new season & beyond.
See how it's done in Karin Grabner's forecast edition of Icons of Creativity no 33.
