APLF Product Trends Spring-Summer 2022

by Olivier Guilemin [o,o] in collaboration with the Comité Français de la Couleur

APLF leads us into a dynamic season for Spring-Summer 2022. A season that continues from Fall-Winter 2021/22 and shows that trans-seasonality is now essential. The holistic, the sustainable, our experience of this new age and a return to earthly inspirations all help us think positively about tomorrow. Mindfulness and re-enchanting reality also propel this dream of our vision. Feeling, fashioning the future.

Let’s dive in!
