City spotlight: a global perspective

Through a data-driven lens, we dissected key trends across fashion capitals, revealing distinct preferences and innovations:

  • Milan and Paris emerged as leaders in experimenting with Vinyl and Scarlet Red, respectively, reflecting their willingness to embrace boldness and vibrancy. Whether evoking a grungy, rebellious dynamism or a more alluring, glamorous aesthetic, red remains a captivating choice for designers seeking to make a statement. The prevalence of shades of red has been notable in recent seasons, evident both on the catwalks and across social media platforms.
  • London maintained a smaller representation rate for Stripes, suggesting a more cautious approach compared to the broader embrace seen in other capitals. Indeed, stripes stand out as one of the prints consistently reinvented season after season, demonstrating remarkable growth in FW’24 compared to FW’23. While pinstripes have taken center stage with the resurgence of tailoring, designers are now placing their bets on thick stripes.

Concerning consumer inclinations, our data from our Fashion Week FW’24 report shows that they tend to align closely with runway trends.

Crimson Red leads with the highest forecasted growth for the Fall ’24 season, with a forecasted increase of +16% emerging as the preferred trend across all segments, capturing the attention of mainstream, trendy and edgy consumers.

Thematic trends analysis: heritage reimagined, a new era of riveting refinement

Dressing in a refined and sophisticated manner is currently en vogue, epitomized by the couture-clad socialites of the seventies-era depicted in the TV show ‘Feud: Capote vs. the Swans.’ This trend embraces capes, dinner suits, sheath dresses, and luxurious Chanel-like bouclé tweed, ideal for channeling the strong and confident essence of Upper East Side ‘ladies who lunch.’
However, the narrative of Heritage Reimagined sophistication emerging from this fashion week extends beyond mere nostalgia, instead paying homage to tradition while embracing evolution. It serves as a reminder that elegance is a dynamic concept, embodying qualities of grace, strength, and authenticity. Designers like Alessandro Vigilante at Rochas and Pieter Mulier at Alaïa skillfully reinterpret their houses’ legacies, infusing historical elegance with modern sensibilities. Vigilante’s exploration of lace and surrealism and Mulier’s innovative use of merino wool exemplify this dialogue with the past. Meanwhile, designers such as Tory Burch and Prada infuse modernity into their interpretations of Heritage Reimagined forms, with Burch exploring vulnerability and Prada focusing on hyped bow motifs.

By leveraging the data insights provided by Heuritech, merchandisers know that for representing this theme, the key colours to consider are Charcoal Gray, with a +8% growth in Europe, and Burgundy, with a +6% growth.
