DALLAS, Jan 1, 2009 / FW/ — It’s time to make the forecast for 2009 and Amsterdam-based Klaus van den Berg released his Hot & Not Trend List for 2009. So, what will be “in” and “so last season” this year?

“In good times and in bad, new trends are always a hot conversation piece. Next year the coolest charts will be the financial listings and economic overviews,” comments Van Den Berg

“Because people will act more aware, critical and cautious in all aspects of their consumer lives, trends will be cooled down accordingly. Next year’s trends will be less in your face and more ‘tongue-in-cheek’, if not to say ‘tongue-in-chic’, than last year’s. Forget glamour. In 2009 humor will be the best rumor around the trend,” he added.
