Top Drawer unveils S/S trends

From bold geometrics to seventies styling, lifestyle event Top Drawer delivers its trends for the Spring/Summer 2017 season

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 bluenote. Check out Iittala's new shade of light blue for Teema on the Skandium stand (Home H15) and the shades of blue on pottery-like pieces at Libby Ballard Ceramics (Spotted SP25).

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. Check out the nature-inspired textured bowls at Ellul Ceramics (Craft B6).

Echoes of Deco
Bold geometrics, metallics and an aura of luminous luxe characterize this ultra-glam trend. Think high-shine, high design, max desirability. Bloomingville (Home D41) will have plenty of high-shine, glossy and geometrically-shaped pieces on display. 

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. Don't miss the Hokolo brand on the Make International stand (Home F9) with its retro-inspired bright and bold colours and patterns on ceramics.

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.
