Edelkoort ETC / Trend Union, Paris/F

Lidewij Edelkoort is one of the world’s most famous trend forecasters. As an intuitive thinker who travels the world studying the evolution of sociocultural trends before sharing this information with her clients in industries as diverse as fashion, textiles, interiors, cars, cosmetics and food, under her company Trend Union, Edelkoort creates trend books two years ahead that are design tools used by strategists, designers and marketeers at international brands.

Edelkoort has worked for some of the world’s bestknown companies: advising Coca Cola how Sprite should communicate with emerging youth archetypes; defining how western perceptions of Japanese culture can benefit Nissan to improve sales and build their identity abroad; explaining how technology, design and services will be affected by newly formed social networks amongst consumers under 20 year sold for Time Warner Cable; forecasting new consumer archetypes for Esprit as far forward as 2068; and proposing business development ideas for Lacoste’s expansion into new fields of interest outside of fashion.

Edelkoort and her studio have created concepts for food retailers, department stores, restaurants, hotels, entertainment, fashion, accessories, lifestyle and cosmetics companies: Disney, Estée Lauder, Galeries Lafayette, GAP, Jean Patou, Joyce, L’Oréal, Marks & Spencer, Salvatore Ferragamo, Samsung, Seibu, Seiko, Siemens, Shiseido and Whirlpool among their many clients.
