SCOUT's 5 Favourite Trends for 2018

On the edge of a Brave New World we can feel that change is coming. It’s exciting to see this developments reflected in Fashion. Check out some of the trend stories that we believe are so strong for the next year:

1.ACTIVISTS 

This story talks about disruption and resistance. Distrustful of the political machine and the establishment, the new generation members are disrupting the system to make change. This is directly reflected on the uniform of the revolution, that mixes sweats and utility pieces with a raw edge of toughness and bravado. 

2.URBAN JUNGLE

It's a trend story about urban refugees seeking peace in an alternative lifestyle and getting off-grid completely, retreating to the hills and country shacks.This contrast manifests itself in clothing, fusing utility with femininity, sportswear with work wear for an eclectic blend of looks.

3.UNCOMPLICATED

The name says it all; pressed for time, overworked and underpaid, the followers of this lifestyle yearn for a less complicated existence. There’s no mental energy left for fuss or stress, which stimulates the seek for products and clothing that both reflect and enhance that urge for simplicity. 

4. CRAFTERS

Crafters is about embracing the simple life. Our modern-day crafters eschew the fast paced life for something, slower and calmer. Comfort is key here in soft, buttery suedes and shearlings, lofty knits, washed cords, sanded sweats; it's about feeling cosy and safe in familiar surroundings with friends.

5. GLOBAL TRIBES

The message of this trend is that life is all about a rustic hut, a perfect sunset, and a local market. Faded denims and washed-out favourite T-shirts mixed with earthy colours and sun-bleached brights suit a travel style of this global tribes. Everything looks and feels worn-in and handcrafted, with a story to tell.
