Fashionable themes for the autumn-winter season 2016 / 17

The originality and difference of one fashion theme from another is most clearly reflected in the color palette of clothes and shoes. The uniqueness of color shades and their combinations makes it easy to read a fashionable theme and convey its mood to the buyer. In this article, we present the four main color palettes of the autumn-winter season 2016 / 17 for key fashion trends, which we wrote about in detail in previous issues. About color solutions presented by the international trend bureau FASHIONSNOOPS.COM, says Galina Kravchenko, chief expert on the assortment and forecasting trends of Fashion Consulting Group, head of the FCG– FASHIONSNOOPS.COM representative office.



This theme perfectly combines a diverse palette: the splendor of the autumn forest and the aesthetics of folk crafts. For an assortment of shoes and accessories, it implies imitation of the colors of plant dyes: light beige, ocher brown, green-olive and red toffee colors (Toffifee). These natural colors are organically combined with a palette of accent colors: burgundy, prune color, brown shade of roasted coffee, cold gray and deep blue.


This trend is saturated with the atmosphere of the scientific environment, in particular, the microbiological laboratory. The appeal to the topic of new discoveries is not accidental, it is a reflection of the changing lifestyle of modern man, captured by various technological and chemical-biological know-how. The Clinical Laboratory trend reflects industrial minimalism in a light color palette. A central place is occupied by combinations of natural beige tones: the colors of powder and light leather, ceramic coral pink, white and gray with a hint of lavender. 62 ALL ABOUT SHOES trends shoes report


This theme is the return of the old school style, the aesthetics of school and university sports teams. Intense color combinations convey hot and slightly impudent mood: hot orange and ocher gold, vibrant red and cherry, dark green and deep classic blue are complemented by rich brown. Light shades of beige camel hair emphasize the bright red and rich color of dark leather luggage.


This theme conveys the atmosphere of mystical thrillers and glorifies the neo-Gothic style. The contrast between brutality and innocence, aggression and calm is expressed in a dark but contrasting color scheme: black against white, a shade of ivory against gray dust, and a combination of gray-purple and dirty blue.
