To discover, learn, investigate and be surprised by the trends of the near future, there is only one place: Design Directions, the multimedia space hosted within Milano Fashion&Jewels Exhibition and born from the renewed collaboration with Poli.Design. An area where the investigation of shapes and materials combines with guidelines, ideas, and food for thought to create the path forward to identify the evolution of trends and contemporary habits.
Design Directions is an immersive journey that, thanks to its rich and lively contents, allows tracing the guidelines for fashion jewellery and accessories for the next two years. A fundamental tool for companies and designers who can roleplay future scenarios with the aim of being increasingly competitive on the market and in line with the needs of the future consumers
Here is a preview of the two macro-trends revealed by recent Poli.Design studies in September 2023:
Everyday actions turn into fun and making lunch, engaging in one's beauty rituals or taking a break to play sports can become inspiration for one's accessories.
Letters take center stage by reinforcing obvious concepts, creating fun misunderstandings or supporting motivational messages.
The nature, colors, buildings or landscapes that daily surround us change before our eyes to become extraordinary ornaments.
Blends the real world with the fantastic to create hybrid, magical and unconventional ornaments.
Explores the new life of beautiful, well-made objects that come from discarded materials or memories of the past.
"DESIGN DIRECTIONS - Fashion Forecast draws the guidelines for the next two years for fashion jewellery and accessories. Research that not only investigates materials and shapes but defines design directions to interpret scenarios into products capable of expressing their DNA according to formal, material and technical customisation. They are real guidelines that HOMI Fashion&Jewels offers companies and designers to intercept markets and become competitive. "
