Fashion trends Codyeco fall - winter 2019/2020
"We are very satisfied with the result that we have obtained", said Alessandro Picchi, responsible for the new collection, "the new trend is divided, as usual, into four thematic-sensorial sectors: MEMORY, FROZEN STORM, SLOW FUTURE, and NOBLESSE BOUDOIR. The items are predominantly of classical inspiration to which our Development team wanted to give a modern characterization by inserting innovative elements."
The new trend takes the leather on a journey of memory, where the predominant colors in the nuance of the natural tones of the earth to intense purple suddenly find themselves in the midst of a cold winter storm with cold shades with metallic and icy effects. Then the gaze into the future shows the discovery of new and sophisticated horizons of rebirth where the delicacy of the colors of the rose are faded, with pearlescent effects that make everything extremely elegant. The journey ends in a noble living room, with a classic and lush flavor, inspired by the world of precious fabrics with fascinating textures in dark shades, illuminated by intense green in a metallic and opaque version.
