Frankfurt/Germany, February 2015
Meeting the German coworkers and looking for new ideas at one of the biggest Christmas Fairs. Very excited and tired at the end of the day.
Christmas trends 2015:
Dramatic, striking and a touch glamorous - anything but restrained
Christmas this year will be extremely festive and, sometimes, unconventional. We could see that natural materials are still ‘in’, there is a noticeable desire for the unusual: pink artificial trees compete with pastel-colored baubles while red, blue and green (see even our new colors), as well as black and white, set charming accents. Particularly popular for Christmas decorations this year is copper, often combined with gold and black. To ensure that the most endearing festival of the year is not boring, forest figures, polar bears and penguins are in the limelight, together with elephants, cats in fancy dresses and comical monkeys. Individual decorative articles are presented in special settings that carry consumers off into wonderful or lost worlds and inspire them to make spontaneous purchases.
