Trend Forecast: Faux REAL

WGSN reveals key shapes and items for autumn 11 with its pick of seasonal macro trends.

The feel

  • The real looks fake and the fake becomes more real
  • Pay homage to the originals
  • Colours are unnatural and discordant
  • Look for new proportions and surface textures

Buyer tips

  • Look for basic or classic pieces that are reworked in new and interesting textures
  • Angular faceting is a flattering way to mould the female form
  • Brash accessories are conspicuously fake
  • Matt black pieces provide a quiet backdrop for manipulated surfaces
