Luxury doesn’t just think of tracksuits for staying home. “Comfort will be a dominant theme next spring, but it will not come at the expense of style,” Ganesh Srivats, CEO of Moda Operandi wrote in the Runway Report. The New York e-tailer anticipates fashion trends, offering his customers the pieces his evaluations show Valentino’s excellent performances, the Off Duty boot and Bottega Veneta bags.
According to Moda Operandi, customers have already spent an average of 779 dollars for each item purchased for the next spring season, compared to 576 dollars last year (+35%). It is true that there is a demand for quality and basic (timeless) products, but there is no lack of demand for trendy items too. In particular, buyers focus on functional, practical and easy-to-match models. Models that, therefore, can be used several times. The consumer completes his wardrobe with high-value designer pieces. And the favourites were those presented on the various brands catwalks, confirming that the runway effect has not vanished at all.
