Top Drawer S/S 2016 trends revealed

Key trends for Spring/Summer 2016 have been identified across Top Drawer’s four distinctive worlds - Home, Gift, Fashion and Craft

A number of key trends have been identified for Spring/Summer 2016 by UK leading design-led buying event, Top Drawer, the next edition of which will take place January 17-19.

From metallic tones to clean, textural finishes, here are some of the key trends:

Lustrous Allure
A metallic trend hot on the heels of the Dulux Colour of the Year for 2016, Cherished Gold, sees an array of metallic tones that have the edge to perform beautifully by themselves, or as a base or accent to other colours while Blush Hues follows the fashion-led trend for all things pink, with shades from Barbie through to Ladurée macaroons.

Summer Living
This is the trend to follow to discover products with a summer vibe that will appeal throughout the year while those with an adventurous spirit will love the Intrepid Explorer trend for travel-inspired products for home and away.

Those who appreciate balanced colour, shape and form will be able to submerge themselves in our Modern Geometric trend, where sharp surface patterns present themselves across a vast range of products throughout the show. 
Rustic Utilitarian
Getting back to basics never looked so good: simple, clean lines and textural finishes distinguishes the trend we call Rustic Utilitarian, whilst Add Character is the trend for your inner fun-child to discover a world of character-led products that the retail customers will love.

Top Drawer will present a carefully edited, global cross-section of products from the finest brands and designers across its sectors of Home, Gift, Fashion and Craft. Over 1000 exhibitors will showcase Interior Accessories, Kitchen & Dining, Furniture & Lighting, Outdoor Living, Stationery & Greetings, Wellbeing, Children’s, Fashion Accessories and Jewellery at the UK’s leading Design led buying event, which runs from 17 - 19 January 2016 at London Olympia.
