Organic green tones are influenced by jungle undergrowth, offering a new take on utility drab, and providing an earthy balance. Colours such as Taupe and Ash are grounded by deep, earth-based tones, and offer a new richness for winter collections. Aster and Ochre have new appeal: a new appreciation of dark tones sees intense Ochre and Ochre become modern alternatives to classic browns and navys, Neutrals have a changeable appearance: neutrals become more layered and complicated for F/W 17, with changeable shades such as grey-toned, sand and green.

Surface textures are key: distinctive material treatments create rugged looks for low and mid shapes. Sea ripples inspire formal and casual  uppers and outsoles. Soft ribber detailing offers a sense of tranquility in this intense trend and evolve in staple sneaker profiles with crepe soles and textural uppers. Waxed and polished finishes are mixed with leather and suede surfaces, creating unusual directions for the season. Sophisticated perforated surfaces add unique styling to men’s key shapes. Oversized mesh textures take inspiration from organic deep-sea surfaces to provide breathable and lightweight styling for active and lifestyle designs.
