Autumn/Winter 2011 Trends for Men by CIFF
Copenhagen International Fashion Fair is one of the most famous fashion events in Europe. The next season of the event will take place from August 4th-11th 2011. Below are the Autumn/Winter 2011 Trends for Men’s Fashion by CIFF.
The trend relates to current attitudes towards nomadology and mixing. It is a rich and modern story of human transmission and endurance.
Between yesterday’s pioneer and today’s migrant, population movements and cultural interactions have never ceased to intensify and accelerate. Globalisation has helped us realize the tremendous diversity and riches of this “world culture” that merges with notions of a positive and sustainable future. Like a long human saga of transmission, wanderlust and endurance, “Nomadology” and “Hybrid-age” are re-infused with meaning and essence.
In World Remix, we integrate all world cultures and rediscover the pioneer workwear for sustainable functionality.
The trend creates an essential imaginary parenthesis. A strange world of chimerical softness and galactic surges, where we are suspended between the year 1000 and an uncertain future.
Once upon a time, living the natural life of frugal simplicity and unassuming beauty… a return to the source of neo-Shaker or Pre-raphaelite neo-romanticism, of a symbiosis with flora and fauna.This enchanted “green” dream of softness and freshness inspires urbanites tired of the fast track and Junk life. We want to infuse, in our lives, some utopia, ecological adventure and rethink our relationship to nature in an exploding muffled, timeless world, a precurser of things to come. This is a prelude to a new movement.
To be in harmony with one’s surroundings is essential. Nature inspires our way of life and adds poetry and softness to the wardrobe.
The trend re-infuses meaning to standard references.
Classicism becomes a compelling force and provides an opportunity to innovate. Because it is bold, majestic and charismatic…classicism is ideally up-to-date. It offers benchmarks for building, recomposing and boldly reviving self-confidence and true elegance, those that are based on know-how, knowledge and experience. A focus on classics with a radically contemporary and modern translation, allowing for offbeat and eccentric variations.
Hunting, horse riding, college and British traditions inspire our search for new key standards.
The trend refocuses on an active and empathetic utopia, on co-production, on simple, sustainable and appealing solutions.
Make way for the community spirit, collective action and creative collaborations…for a dynamic and solidarity-based utopia that will rebuild social ties and turn passive consumers into imaginative co-producers. This new generation of pragmatic altruism believes in the energising power of enthusiasm, seeks simple, sustainable, alternative, local, fair and appealing solutions that aren’t swamped in artificial lecturing and ideology. Basic, human and atypical solutions that are made for all those who have accepted the constraints of the modern world but tale it with a dose of humor and hedonism.
With Eco-optimistic, we reinvent daily life by using color in a pragmatic and simple way. It offers a new aesthetic for an easy and casual wardrobe, for those who balance environmental responsibilities and playfulness.
