2013 Fashion Trend
There Is A Shift
A Shift is taking place in the 2013 fashion industry. Labels like Carven, the rebooted Kenzo brand and Swedish brand Acne, have all shown stellar gains recently. Acne just opened its first store in Japan, Carven showed its popular menswear collection for the first time during the menswear shows in January and Kenzo’z designs were the hot ticket items for the fashion crowd during the past ready to wear shows. The growth of these brands suggest that a large section of consumers are moving past fast fashion and are willing to invest a bit more in bridge brands that offer a true designer vision rather than simple knockoff runway looks.
The shift is profound and likely to be around a while when a high street fashion behemoth like H&M and one of the pioneers of the fast fashion model, gets in on the act. Targeting a sophisticated clientele looking for the company calls “lasting wardrobe treasures within a wide price range”, it is launching a new brand called ‘& Other Stories’. Set to debut across ten European cities this spring including Barcelona, Berlin, London, Milan, Paris and Copenhagen, the brand will offer women’s shoes, bags, accessories, beauty products and ready-to-wear at a much higher price point than what is typically on offer in H&M stores. The line will reportedly be created by ateliers in Paris and Stockholm with a view to creating high quality pieces at affordable prices. Creativity in other words is back in style with consumers. H&M keyed into this blossoming movement of conscientious consumerism and even take it one step further. From its ranking as the number one user of organic cotton world wide to its ecologically enhanced denim treatment techniques and newly unveiled garment exchange program designed to encourage customers to recycle their discarded fashions, moreover, given its size market share worldwide, H&M has the potential to effect lasting change throughout the industry. The Fashion industry as a whole could learn a lot from H&M and its Scandinavian peers. After more than a decade of fast fashion, consumers are no longer content with just a quick fashion fix. Producing well made clothing that makes you look good on the outside and feel good on the inside is no mean feat, but it is the way forward. Perhaps this next decade will see Danes Swedes, Finns and Norwegians blazing a new fashion trail, one that combine Scandinavian style with sartorial substance and responsible consumerism.

We are proud to launch the newest brand Noble Fade in spring 2013. The line is intended to be the more comfortable part of the Bertoni wardrobe. Casual garments for leisure time, perfect when we need to dress down or have a more relaxed dress code. Noble Fade has its roots in the Bertoni silhuette, but with added functional details and washed to give softer hand feel and more worn effect.
