Colour is grabbing the attention this season, either because it's bright and saturated or because it's shaded from one colour into another. Shapes appear simple but there are hidden splits, cutouts at the back or clever asymmetric lines, which add to the contemporary vibe. Necklace-style decoration and bracelet cuffs add impact to minimal tops, tunics and dresses in single colours.
There is a massive swing towards ethnic influenced pattern and craft; Aztec patterns, Native American beadwork/fringing, handcrafted dye effects and animal camouflage merge to form a general hippy vibe that will continue going forward.
Denim looks ahead in washed out colour with abraded finishes either in quirky colour effects or with new customised details...

Catwalk 2013/14 Accessory Trend Analysis  CATWALK  Accessory Trends A/W 2013/14 published 21 May 2013 - 47 pages 16950-16996
In general there's a strong move towards unisex and masculine styles, especially in the footwear sector. The majority of glove styles are boyishly bulky with fur linings, padded sections or added knitwear. Headwear reflects a similar mannish mood in unisex styles, such as, trilbies, fedoras, knitted beanies and sports caps. Belts are the only exception to the rule often hugging the waist in feminine corset-like styles at Etro or cinching the waist like a waspie at Jil Sander. Sporty sunglasses are hi-tech with blackout lenses; at Acne these are squashed into narrow slit frames, while at Just Cavalli styles are shaped into winter sport goggles with a neon trim.

FOOTWEAR - from extreme innovation to mannish practicalities...
BELT - corset styles, minimal bands and stud fastenings...
GLOVE - tough styles with sporty details or in oversized dimensions...
HEADWEAR - sporty winter caps or mannish styles push forward...

The Paris report is our biggest this season purely because of all the amazing ideas emerging out of this inspiring city! Designers are embracing extreme silhouettes and reducing detail for a greater impact in ‘Abbreviated Shape’. In ‘Construction Work’ utility styles emerge with a rebellious edge and a flicker of punk. ‘Femme Fatale’ features killer dresses in streamlined shapes, which evoke the seductive appeal and style of film noir heroines. There’s plenty of attitude in our next trend ‘Sporty Swagger’, where the latest sportswear inspired styles are compellingly tricked out in punchy colour or bold graphic patterns. ‘Check Point’ includes tartan patterns, which have strong links with the punk era, and this connection is emphasised in hybrid styles that blend biker-style leather panels with check patterns. ‘Get Stoned’, introduces fluid, loosely structured silhouettes in printed effects that are evocative of patterned stones.

Statement necklaces, which fill the collar area, dominate the jewellery scene in Milan and London. These short styles can be made up of twisted clusters of beads or chunky single chains with oversized pendants.
These magnified sizes are also trending for rings, which are chunky and feature cutout lettering or are set with large spherical stones. Leather cuffs with hardware or buckle style fastenings also make a bold statement. Smaller strappy bracelets and bangles are worn in groups, mixing colour and textures. 
Silver and gold look great together and mixing metallic colours is a definite jewellery trend moving forward.

Retail Trend Analysis Milan Footwear Autumn Winter 2011  RETAIL  Milan Footwear trend analysis published 28 October 2011 - 33 pages 14767-14799
We've got some great styles from Milan including revised heritage looks with intricately crafted details, aggressive styles with chunky chains and studs, boyish designs with quirky details and wild fusions of colour and texture.
The lines become increasingly blurred between sandals, shoes and boots as styles fuse together with amazing results.
Retro styles are reworked and see designers curve out the heel into a severe comma shape, magnify the detailing or splice the styles into two or three colour/fabric/texture combinations.
Heels have been enjoying the spotlight for a few seasons and now soles are vying for attention. Designers are embedding chains into platforms, exaggerating the tread into weird angles or simply using a platform sole as a contrast in colour, shine, texture or pattern to the main body.

Catwalk Trend Analysis Paris Autumn Winter 2011/12  CATWALK  Paris A/W 2011/12 trend analysis  published 01 April 2011 - 52 pages 14013-14064
Paris has the ultimate impact on catwalk trends. We’ve analysed and edited thousands of photographs into 4 main themes. The fusion trend continues to explore collages of textures and hybrids, but here the combinations are disordered and contrasts are extreme. The palette emerging from Paris is dark and serious, even prints and patterns revolve around black. Gold is a key player, acting as a highlight, decoration or detail and also as a single garment or all-over coating. There is a sexy, tightly controlled silhouette that leans towards retro and an expanded silhouette, which adds loose volume. Get a clear and detailed insight into next season’s trends here.

MEGA FUSION - a heady collage of textures and sharp contrasts forms into a single hybrid, or combines in grungy layers... 
FRENCH KINK - a tightly controlled silhouette with a sensual undercurrent strikes a balance between proper and provocative...
EXPANDED SHAPE - perfectly balanced designs with reduced details in solid blocks of colour...
DARK FORCES - a dark, gothic spirit is at work adding suspense and a slightly tough undercurrent to the latest surface designs...
