Key trends for SS17 unveiled

Design-led show Top Drawer identifies six key aesthetic trends for its SS17 edition, which takes place January 15-17

Design-led, international lifestyle event, Top Drawer, has identified six key aesthetic trends across H​ome, Gift, Fashion and C​raft for its expertly curated Spring/Summer 17 (S/S17) edition, running this January at London’s Olympia.​ Each trend is reflected through a range of products across all sectors so that buyers can source with confidence what their customers will want to buy in the seasons ahead.

The Blues
The tranquil tones of myriad different blues grace everything with a touch of beautiful, ethereal cool. For enduring appeal and a serene seasonal scene, add a blue note.

Honest Simplicity
Here the aesthetic is fluid; the colour palette soft, warm and natural. This direction offers calm sensuality with organic influences seen across all lifestyle sectors.

The Tribe Vibe
Pattern, material and texture reference a tribal, natural vibe in this tactile direction. Away from pure neutrals, colour is vivid; the urge to touch almost irresistible.

Echoes of Deco
Bold geometrics, metallics and an aura of luminous luxe characterize this ultra-glam trend. Think high-shine, high design, max desirability.

This direction sees eye-popping colour, modern materials and strong, graphical influences across a vibrant selection of products for a very hot new season.

70s Remix
The distinctively bright colour combinations and dynamic patterns so redolent of 70s décor get a fresh update on a range of modern products, perfect for now.

Top Drawer returns to London Olympia from 15-17 January with more exclusive brands and product launches than ever before. Encompassing the expertly curated world of Home, Gift, Fashion, Craft and Food, the Spring/Summer 2017 edition of Top Drawer features a unique edit of thousands of design-led UK and overseas brands, chosen for their beautiful design, exceptional quality, originality and commercial appeal.
