Intended to inform and inspire, it features market reports and industry analysis, exclusive product round-ups and trend edits created by the Drapers team to give you a first look at the new collections and trends that will dominate in the coming months.

Footwear and accessories are a big focus right now. Customers’ seemingly insatiable appetite for sportswear, and luxury brands’ hugely influential styles – that step off the catwalk and trickle down to the high street – make trainers the footwear hero for spring 19. From super-sporty to sleeker, smarter styles for men and women, there is a sneaker for everyone this season.

Accessories are also going from strength to strength, whether it be the bum bag-meets-crossbody trend that started in streetwear but goes mainstream for spring 19, or the surge in design driven yet accessibly priced handbag brands.

As the gloom hangs over the high street and customer spend continues to tighten, catching shoppers’ attention with a new pair of shoes or an affordable accessory should be a focus. But you cannot just rely on a pair of simple brogues or a classic heeled pump: customers want something that gives them a point of difference. Stand out from your competitors and offer customers something new and something fresh – there is plenty to choose from for spring 19.
