Ifda and TheOneMilano revales the A/W 2018/2019 trends

WANDERERS OF TODAY AW 2018/2019 Fashion Directions

by IFDA (Italian Fashion and Design Academy) Team Trends

Today’s Wanderers get inspiration from the ancient but modern concept of intellectual and creative nomadism and face the absence of paths: they climb over the concept of travel turning into emigrants with no destination.

The world’s influences take form in the human being through the 5 senses, which become 6 through multi-sensorial experiences, spreading the desire for a new intellectual and aesthetic renaissance that stays in touch with modernity, digital technology, essential shapes, just like a New Enlightenment that brings together mind and beauty, as well as instinct and wild nature.

This way clothes become comfort clothes, big little luxuries that embody the mix of technology and skillful craftsmanship, produced through techniques bringing together intellect, arts, past, present and future. The New Normality, Culture Clash and Future Identity exemplify all this, shaping this present and future influenced by the world, by talent and by beauty.
