The ‘Colours/Material Guide’ analyses the major sociological and consumer attitudes and presents ready-to-wear colours and leather highlights for the winter 2006/07 season. The guide features the spirit of the season in which imagination and fantasy are the keynotes.

Bureau de Style Chaussure Maroquinerie has pinpointed trends which lead to new ways of thinking and purchasing. Ready-to-wear trends are divided into four major fashion themes for men, women and children and each of them will have an impact on accessories.

Bureau de Style focuses on beauty by suggesting colours and materials in four ranges which explore moods in materials and colour. The colour range features additional tones which complement the suggestions. The guide includes an address book which lists new concept stores for readers to discover. Released early in the season, the guide is a useful tool for companies starting work on their new collections.

The Colours/Materials Guide is available to non-CIDIC subscribers at the price of €646 (including VAT, excluding postage). This price includes the definitive colour range which will be dispatched in early September.
