The Exclusively exhibition has a reputation for predicting commercial trends. With the return of the ‘live’ event from August 24 to 25 at the Business Design Centre, Exclusively will unveil the next three to five year trends to buyers, trade and consumer media and suppliers. One of the biggest is Neo Luxe and trend forecaster, Scarlet Opus will be sharing all the details at the show in a series of seminars and trend tours.
Phil Pond from Scarlet Opus gave a sneak preview of Neo Luxe which will start to come through from the autumn and winter – the idea being to help ensure that the products on display at the show are perfectly placed for buyers both short term and into Christmas, as well as long term.
Neo Luxe is all sophistication and dark romance from earlier centuries and combines rich luxurious colours with high drama and an almost punk quality in its provocative glamour. It is a provocative meeting of the historic with contemporary and the key colours are blue, black and shades of green with textures such a velvet, walnut, gloss and gold and brass. Florals and foliage are important patterns going forward.
Products which work with Neo Luxe will not only be prevalent in the exhibition in general, but also in the Brand Showcase – a media-friendly edit of the main show – where some 250 press, bloggers and influencers will soak up the on trend thinking and use it in all their coverage to come.
