Under this circumstance, import and export companies have to keep their core competitiveness, quickly adapt in the changing environment, and jump out of the ‘branding’ path.
Dutch designer and trend predictor AJ Schep brought ‘2015-2016 International Home Decorations and Accessories Trends’, and revealed next two years’ trends in fashion, color, material, and pattern. Nude, grape, and summer metallic will be the colors of 2015 home supplies; pantherism, pattern matrix, and graphic Scandinavian will come back; acrylic and Perspex, marble and concrete, weaving, and paper are still favored. Eventually, the on-going, zero-gravity, and new-reality 2015 will evolve into a 2016 full of human passions and behaviors, arousing a ‘happy, my-way, and intelligent’ fashion surge.
