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’.
Outside it is 30° C and I have just finished the Christmas collection for 2019. The pictures illustrate my christmas trend theme “Joy, Love, Peace”. It smells of cinnamon, cardamom, star anise and vanilla. Christmas is in the air. Sweets of all kinds, such as gingerbread, chocolates and candy canes, are offered. The sound of little bells clang and chime in classic, as well modern, Christmas carols. The sweetness of emotions and joyful memories are captured by lustrous colorful hues such as lemon, pink, tangerine, and rose, making Christmas a feast of joy. Fine humorous designs delight soul and heart. Please find out more about the other themes “Nordic Winter” and “Tradition” here.
Surprise! Surprise! Did you expect Ultra Violet to be the color of the year 2018? I am looking forward to finding this color on products, patterns and fashion.
I wish you a merry and bright christmas and a happy new year 2018!
This is crazy about my job, no matter what season it is I’m working on christmas patterns. As soon as christmas is over and no one else can see it anymore there is a fair “Christmasworld” in February in Frankfurt, Germany and the production for christmas items starts again. For christmas 2018 I focus on Northern folk and gingerbread cookies.
