The story of a woman who lives in a small hut house surrounded by trees and winding rivers high in the mountains is the theme of this trend. She leaves this bustling world, preferring solitude and unity with nature. The heavy fall color palette of the trend is combined with cold shades of indigo and forest. Fabrics such as felted wool, boucle and ripped jeans best convey the identity of the trend. Finishing reminiscent of hand-made motifs of folk crafts plays an important role: fringe, suede appliqués, raw seams. Key models: saffiano leather half boots, boots with furry heels, lace-up ankle boots.


Clinical laboratory
This trend is a reflection of the mysterious and calm atmosphere that prevails in microbiological laboratories, and it is not accidental. It is the new discoveries in chemistry that should become the next round in the development of technologies that affect not only medicine and the human body, but also change life style in general. The trend color palette is a mixture of delicate pinkish leather tones with soft, muted grays. In general, the models are minimalistic, distinguished by neat lines and restrained forms: seamless ballet shoes with plain inserts, low-heeled stockings, fur boots with transparent heels, monochrome slip-ons

A dark horse
Fashion trend supporting mysterious mystical thrillers in neo-Gothic style. This is a brutal style that turns any innocent girl into a dangerous and unpredictable person. The trend's color palette is black, blue and gray, mixed with dirty shades of white and orchid. The key materials creating a sexual connotation are mesh, quilted textiles and leather, as well as wet plush. Massive boots and neat pumps are always decorated with chains, rough boots with a bandana are “printed” with bright, catchy graphics. Pins, eyelets, spikes, along with leather applications - all this helps to attract the attention of experiment lovers.


National team
The trend is saturated with the old school style. This is the aesthetics of school and university sports teams, turned into a wearable casual. The color palette of the trend is cheerful autumnal shades of burning orange and yellow-gold. To reflect retro aesthetics, vintage leather, soft suede, woolen textiles are used. Patterns and graphics fully reflect the American university style and copy the classic "sports" fonts in prints and stripes. The retroport theme is reflected in the details, such as white lacing, convex figures and various applications. Key models: oxfords with thick flat soles and loafers with low thin heels.
