A fashion trend forecast for Spring/Summer 2010 in react to the global economic recession.

Living in Eindhoven as a student, I always felt detached from the real world.

The economic crisis seems a distant fairytale to me:

People getting trapped by figures and systems invented by themselves.

They are depressing stories imagined by unhappy adults.


I would rather go in the smurf world:

a simple, basic and joyful blue utopia!
