Top Trends for the New Season

This week we’ve looked at new products launching at this Autumn’s Top Drawer trade show. We’ve seen new designs from the greetings & stationery sector, and new giftware lines, but today I want to turn your attention to new trends.

Inspired by the latest designed-led products being launched at this Autumn’s show, Top Drawer organisers have revealed 6 top trends to look out for in the coming season.

For each of these trends, I’ve selected 4 examples from amongst this year’s exhibitors, which perfectly encompass the look and style of the trend.

So let’s get started…

The Going Green Trend

The ‘Going Green’ trend encourages us to sense the natural order present in the world from the calming, elegant and verdant influence of one of nature’s most infinitely varied colours.
