Fashion Forecast

For Quis Sum, fashion is not about trends per se, it is about taking what is out there and injecting this with your own spirit. However, it pays to know what is out there to pick and mix from.
Key ideas for the upcoming season are:
1. Future florals - Balenciaga's lavish florals, some culled from the archives, exaggerated and mixed with sculpted silhouettes are the epitome of this, but abstract florals could also be found on many other runways
2. Fifties' silhouettes - ample skirts and nipped in waists
3. Electric brights - colours from all over the spectrum, but the brighter, the better
4. "Tribal" prints - the influence of traditional American, African and Asian prints
