GAMESHIFTER combines futuristic high-tech innovation with flashy glamour.

We start with the first trend theme of FOREVER:


FOREVER stands for durability, timeless and high-quality materials. It revolves around the question of what is really important to us. Inspired by the new home office life that continues to accompany us, we mix athleisure with classics. As corona purists, we wear rediscovered basics and classics – favourite pieces that we already have in our wardrobe.

The FOREVER colour palette consists of timeless and classic colours that have rational, but also emotional nuances. A strong light to dark theme with deep blue, dark loden green, washed out black, medium grey and neutral beige forms the basis. These are complemented by refreshed classics such as delicate rosé, light blue and a full bordeaux tone.
