It’s time to get out of your sweat pants and start looking hip! The urban and streetwear trends for the next season are super colorful and can make you look like a 1000 bucks from head to toe. The young fashion for the Spring/Summer 2012 season with its three themes “Color Up”, “Preppy Yachting” and “Soft Seventies” looks modern, cool and uncompromising with bright colors: grass green, bright pink, bright yellow, pool blue and red for shirts, pants and shoes (no worries, you will not look like a canary). The look of urban and streetwear is sporty and preppy with rolled-up chinos, shorts combined with cotton shirts and comfortable lace-ups or casual espadrilles. In addition to classic, sporty maritime looks with striped patterns and traditional red-white-blue color combinations there is also a lot of natural flair. Elaborate woven sandals and platform sandals on high cork wedges together with flowing floral dresses and flared jeans in attractive washes refer to the 70’s.

To experience all these trends and be ahead of you time, just visit GDS 2011 – International Event for Shoes & Accessories and GLOBAL SHOES 2011 – leading trade show for sourcing in Düsseldorf, Germany.
