Première Vision Spring 15 - Buyer quotes

Buyer quotes from Première Vision.

  • Geoffrey Finch Creative director, Antipodium

“I found it particularly busy this season. I’ve seen some really interesting printed fabrics such as unusual printed leathers, and foil on new things like scuba fabrics.”

  • Sam Cotton Co-founder, Agi & Sam

“It’s been really good but very busy. We’ve seen some great stuff from all over the world. We’re looking for new people to work with to create new designs, but also checking out the ranges from people we already work with.”

  • Nav Juty Designer, Dalian Dayang Group

“The Italians are showing lots of bright checks for men’s tailoring, but for the UK market these will be toned down to taupes, blues and greys. The checks vary from oversized to shadow but the whole mood will be muted. Even stripes are narrower with smaller repeats. Boating stripes will also be very important.”

  • Oliver Spencer Designer of the eponymous menswear label

“This is the busiest spring Première Vision I’ve ever seen and the feeling is upbeat. There is a younger generation of buyers around and the next generation is also appearing in the mills. The most obvious thing for next summer is to do rainwear and waterproofs.”

  • Alexia Hentsch Co-founder, Hentsch Man

“Everywhere has been so busy and people say business is up. Indigo is all over the place as Japanese style is permeating through to Europe. I’ve seen great linen mixes, slubs, navy and stripes. It will be a colourful spring at Hentsch.”

  • Frederik Willems Head of design, Thomas Pink

“Blue is the predominant shade for spring 15, running from very rich and saturated tones through to colours that look sun-faded. It’s a colour that can work from suits through to smart-casual styles such as an indigo shirt. Jackets will be important again, especially when lightweight and unstructured.”

  • Danielle Romeril Designer of the eponymous womenswear label

“We’ve had to come straight from London Fashion Week so it’s been quite hectic, but we’ve seen lots of interesting fabrics. Lots of crunchy textures and even more tech fabrics and lots of painted effects
and finishes. For me it’s a good time as we’ve just finished everything with the last collection at LFW so we can
move on the next.”

  • Ozwald Boateng Men’s tailoring designer

“Next summer is going to be all about colour and texture. I’m spending a lot of time in Africa and that will heavily influence my spring 15 collection.”
