Theme 3

BIOTECH

Biotech is a hit with the youth, showcasing colors from green apples, oranges, tangerines and mango. The shapes are strongly influenced by the 70s, meaning they leave the abdominal area uncovered, thus underlining slim hips. Unthinkable without buttons, zips or rings. Broaches are in too, mostly from colored glass. Biotech is very comfortable, allowing active movement: rubber-covered nets, neopren, foil effects, elastic macrame. Satin, nylon, narrow tops and trousers will also be on the streets.
