Take a dive into the Pool Trend Tank: Presented By Fidoo.com

This year, we helped to highlight 4 main trends for POOL Trade Show – the premier trade show for independent and artist brands from around the globe – that consisted of Leather Liaison, Punk Glam, Scottish Highlands, and Wearable Art. Our job was to find the designers and brands who carried those trends, as well as spot people who were wearing them. Take a look as each one is explained!

Leather Lasion: When is leather not on trend? They make perfect transitional pieces from season to season, whether on jackets, tops, or bottoms. One thing new about leather is that designers are getting creative with it, experimenting with mixing other fabrics and execution details, like perforation, cut-outs, and distressing.

Punk Glam: This trend is for the younger guys who aren’t afraid to rock some studs, grommets, metals and chains. Black is the key color here, along with the leather, as the main fabric of choice.

Scottish Highlands: Luxury outdoor country living rules this menswear trend, where quilted jackets, sweaters, plaids, bowties, and brown distressed leather that mimics a vintage feel, give our group stylish men a line of sophisticated clothing.

Wearable Art: Whether it’s florals, Eastern-inspired prints, or geometric graphics, art is making a huge statement in SS 2013 and will continue to do so into FW. You can see this trend prominent in high-end, moderate, and low-end retail markets. Enjoy the art prints on pants, tops, skirts, and even jackets!
