The Stage: Gudy Herder about 3 Top Trends S/S17 to Watch


“Unknown Terrain”, “Candy, Please!” and “Time Out” are the titles of three top trends of the spring/summer 2017 season presented by Gudy Herder in her pictorial presentation. In it she not only discusses new colour trends, forms and materials, but also points out socio-cultural references in point form or the connection with new technologies.

“Unknown Terrain” stands for the new joy in the discovery of nature, topography and landscape; “Candy, Please!” for the longing for childish lightheartedness in a time characterised by crises and stress, and “Time Out” for the desire for tactile objects that endow sensuality, which can be both high-tech and or natural products. Another aspect of the presentation is how the interiors branch can realise these trends in products.
