Geometrics at Tokyo Quilt Festival 2012

Monday, 20 February 2012

WGSN-homebuildlife reports from this year's Tokyo International Great Quilt Festival, held at Tokyo Dome. Exhibits this year drew heavily from Japanese heritage, providing inspiration for our spring/summer 2013 macro trend Idiomatic, which focuses on the uniqueness of regional cultures, celebrating their specific styles and behavioural rituals.

One of the key trends to emerge from the event was geometrics. Lines, circles, ellipses, triangles, rectangles and polygons make up repeated and abstract geometric patterns, playing with scale, colour and tone to add interest and definition.
