Bam! Here we are again! Welcome to the latest edition of our Melagence Paper. Welcome to Spring / Summer 2024. We don‘t want to just go with the flow or dive into the upcoming season; this time, we want to break free, we want to ACHIEVE A BREAKTHROUGH! We feel that the time has come to stop merely observing and reacting. We want to shape and live our future right now. FUTUREVOQUE - honestly, we‘re not quite sure how to pronounce the word, but AI suggested this title for the main editorial shoot at the Institut für Hygiene und Umweltmedizin der Charité Berlin, and we instantly fell in love with it. It looks fantastic, corresponds to our Franco-English inclination, and leaves room for your own interpretation. What could our fashion future look like? We have decided to explore it from different perspectives: Trend analyst and consultant Carl Tillessen takes us on a profound journey of future consumer behavior. Astrologer Lori Haberkorn shows us our spiritual path and connects it with the trends of future fashion. As always, some of the most influential retailers in our territory provide us with insights into their thoughts, ideas, and plans for future retail. How do you feel this summer? What are your expectations for the near future? What has been your breakthrough? Feel free to share your ideas and thoughts with us through any channel. The future lies wide open before us, so let‘s create something great together and achieve our breakthrough.
