Emerging as the top trade show for sports in the Asia-Pacific region, ISPO Beijing celebrated 10 years in February. Known for its long-running European show that takes place every January in Munich, Germany, ISPO gives a uniques perspective on the Asian Active Market at the Beijing show. This year exhibitors rose to 637 brands representing outdoor, action sports, ski and sport style from 22 countries.
Some of the top trends spotted at the show this year – running from February 19-22nd – included new takes on quilting, heritage badging, heritage sport inspiration and palettes ranging from bright aquas to soft yellows. Here we wanted to share some of our top brand picks from the show.
Kolping mixed materials, colors and cuts for bold, new and interesting statement pieces. Bold blocking in new ways kept garments interesting and relevant from this Korean brand.
Sophisticated color palettes and unique quilting details helped Vaude stand out on the trade show floor. Technical design touches and premium materials added an emphasis of quality.
For its first time showing at ISPO Beijing, Odlo brought style through quality layering pieces. From quilted panels layered into garments to lightweight mid-layers in new silhouettes. A favorite at ISPO Munich, the brand stood out equally in Beijing.
