Drapers this week has a report from the recent tradeshow Bread & Butter Barcelona, where over 900 denim and denim-friendly brands showcased their offerings for Autumn 2007. The article describes a lack of new strong new directional trends for next season, with skinny jeans remaining the key shape, whilst straight-leg and boyfriend cuts promote a more commercially saleable silhouette.

"In terms of denim, a more sophisticated look surfaced this season. Clean, dark denim in indigo, jet black and grey was untainted by excessive bleaching, moustaching or stitch detail, while the ranges that looked the most contemporary were the cleanest… The palette was overwhelmingly sombre- dark indigo, black and slate grey were the key shades, with purple accents."
