Each year, the event hosts a unique inspirations theme, this time around will be “Excuse My French”.
Vincent Grégoire from NellyRodi will once again oversee this highly inspiring space. The designer has analyzed the latest consumer trends and sociological phenomena and has encapsulated them in a theme, it may seem that it has a humorous character but it actually looks seriously upon the re-emergence of the country of Molière on the international scene. According to Vincent Grégoire from NellyRodi, everything revolving Frapossessesess a certain je ne sais quoi — that indescribable Gallic quality that exudes an easy allure, an effortlessly chic and a distinctive sense of style.
France has long been a worldwide reference for the arts, fashion, design and lifestyle. For many, it is quite simply the epitome of elegance. Grégoire pinpoints a number of factors responsible for the country’s new-found resurgence. Leading the way are a whole host of smaller companies – Petites Maisons, who reinterpret traditional savoir-faire with product lines characterized by a spirit of invention and exclusivity. A “nouvelle vague” of creatives open to multicultural influences have also emerged. They shake up traditional French chic by injecting inspirations from elsewhere in a new mood of fusion and mix ‘n’ match.
All of these threads will be brought together in January 2019 at the Trend Forum, a 250 sq. m space in Hall 7 that will present a selection of products embodying the essence of the new French scene. Its theatrical decor will be inspired by the Hall of Mirrors at Versailles, but with a little impertinence mixed in. A small truck where you will be able to find the trend mook for sale will be parked in the middle of it and a number of contemporary items will deliberately contrast with the classical setting.
There will be disruptive, dissonant elements and a spirit of contradiction
They’re an integral part of that je ne sais quoi
