LAS VEGAS — With the economy in recovery mode, Wall Street hitting multiyear highs and men’s wear benefitting from continued trends in silhouette shift and color, retailers and vendors at the trade shows here were upbeat on the season.
Cold weather in parts of the country has put a slight damper on early spring selling, but buyers shopping Project, MRket and Capsule were looking forward to fall, with key trends including heritage fabrics in tailored clothing, technical outerwear, a return to classic indigo denim, layering pieces, mixed media, lots of leather, knit fabrics in unexpected designs like sport coats and a heightened accent on color not usually found in fall collections.
