The recent spring/summer 2011 edition of the renowned Bread & Butter fashion trade show comprised three long and exhilarating days packed full of the “best brands, best buyers and best business”. Mudpie reports back with some hot men’s footwear tips.
Eryn Behan is director of Ginger Trend Consulting, the exclusive agent for UK trend forecaster Mudpie and its online platform MPDClick, and a provider of fashion forecast services and consumer insight trends to the fashion and interior design industries throughout Australasia.
This hugely popular event, held in Berlin’s historic Tempelhof airport, once again delivered on its grand promise, presenting a truly outstanding brand portfolio, some exciting new concepts and a vibrant party atmosphere; it is no wonder Bread & Butter is considered the trade event not to be missed.
Bread & Butter’s success is by no means an accident; it can be largely attributed to the tremendous collaborative efforts of the brand and its selected exhibitors. Each season sees the two parties unite to plan the best spaces and ensure that BBB retains its status as the world’s leading international fashion trade show.
Key Male Footwear Trends of the show:
Shape: Fashionable Oxford style shoes are a vital shape amongst footwear this season; opt for classic suede or even vibrant leather.
Colour: White painted boots have been acknowledged this season; cracked edges create that distressed, haphazard style.
Detail: Visible stitch detail on footwear accentuates the shape and reflects each individual style.
