Offline is becoming the new luxury. And where better to go offline than in the remoteness of the wilderness on less travelled paths. We seek unity with nature to rediscover ourselves and the world and explore our boundaries. The designs show stylized landscapes, mountains and forests, using the graphic signs of the maps for trees and mountains. Even animals, such as the fox and bear, are drawn with sparing lines. A source of inspiration for this theme is the movie Moonrise Kingdom, which gives the whole thing a vintage look. The colour palette ranges from fir and sage green to earth tones and ochre. Popular accessories for this theme are enamel mugs, travel journals and backpacks. Discover more inspiration on the subject of ‘Wanderlust’.
The alternative to Wanderlust 2.0 offers the trending theme ‘glamping’, which combines glamour and the hippie look and has its origin in the summer festival camping culture. Accommodations are tepees and yurts, the original dwellings of indigenous peoples created for nomadic life, or their modern equivalent, e.g. the VW bus. These, like fashion, are adorned with ethnic patterns that are also related to traditional spirituality, such as yoga, Buddhism and the culture of Native Americans. In addition to music festivals, it also means experiencing religious festivals of foreign cultures, such as the Holi Festival in Rajasthan, India, where coloured powder is thrown. Similar to the resort collections of the prêt-à-porter fashion labels, festival fashion has meanwhile become a separate category within fashion collections, where celebrating – especially dancing – under the open sky is very much to be encouraged. Whether fashion or decorative object for the interior, fringes and pompons are an important detail.
