Theme: “Summer sharbat” in fashion embodies a refreshing and cool vibe, much like the drink itself on a hot day. This theme focuses on chic-casuals, placing comfort at the forefront. Drawing inspiration from croquette-core influences, which blend elements of leisure and elegance, and incorporating soft romanticism, this trend offers a relaxed yet stylish approach to summer dressing. Embracing the carefree spirit of summer while maintaining a sense of style and sophistication, “summer sharbat” is metaphorically a casual break during the hot summer afternoons.

Drawing inspiration from classic patterns like gingham and stripes, along with elements of croquette-core like bows and ribbons, brands are embracing softer, safer styles. Comfort is key, with a focus on breathable cotton, crisp linens, and other summer-friendly fabrics. This approach prioritises both style and comfort, creating a perfect blend for the season.

As the winter months pass by, summer takes a front seat, and so do cottons and linens. The scorching heat and dry summers call for cool, bright colours that are airy and perforated.

Design Directions for Tomorrow

Theme: As a homage to bygone eras, today’s youth are deeply enamoured with retro aesthetics, reviving bold truck-inspired and matchbox-inspired artworks. They wear these prints as if they are time travellers, embracing the past with fervour. Paired with regional typographies, these bold visuals create a unique and powerful aesthetic. This trend is a testament to Indian sensibilities at their peak, embodying the essence of g’local without compromising on the richness of summer vacation. Oversized shirts, linen bottoms, and soft, bright colours are the focal points of this trend, exuding a sense of nostalgia and modernity.

Design Directions: Bringing the bold and fun back to the casuals, the popularity of ‘retro modern graphics’ is still trending. Brands can focus on oversized fits, drop shoulders, bright and ‘in your face’ statement prints. Bright colours, and highly contrasting patterns can be seen popular among the youth. Details and trims can also be focused, adding more character to the pieces.
