Sneak peak into some influencers for our SS16/17 trend - Art School

This Macro Trend Direction for SS16/17 is driven by Blending Youth Cultures, Maximalism, Rebellious  Prints and Generation Z.

Generation Z - is largely the spawn of Generation X, so it’s not entirely surprising that it seems to have inherited a taste for the rave look, a 1990s staple. Shop Jeen, the popular web retailer, is brimming with Pop Art-style skirts printed with a giant Coca-Cola logo, tie-dyed maxidresses and rainbow chokers, all of which seem to beg for a spin of Dad’s old Prodigy CD.

And then there’s Miley Cyrus, a late millennial, yes, but also a Generation Z style avatar. As host of MTV’s Video Music Awards in August, this Hannah-Montana-gone-bad turned the telecast into a virtual runway show of ’90s-club-kid retro chic, with her rhinestone sunglasses in the shape of peace signs, fake dreadlocks and polka-dot jumpsuits.
