Première Vision Spring 15 - textile trend forecast

Première Vision’s fashion director Pascaline Wilhelm predicts the top trend directions for next season.

  • Air currents

“It’s all about fabric and the notion of air, giving lightness and transparency,” says Wilhelm. “It’s not frothy couture-like organza but
a more contemporary approach to lightness.” Laser cutting, transparency and softness are key.

  • In touch

Coating and coated fabrics make tactile finishes with a matt aspect or bonded fabric and scuba options, but thin and light. “There are chewing gum-like fabrics and wet aspects with an iridescent look,” Wilhelm says.

  • Gently provocative

Spring 15 will be “provocatively colourful, but gently so”, says Wilhelm. Prints come hand-drawn, with less “photography and Photoshopping”. Double faces bring unusual combinations, with plastic covering natural fabrics.

  • Print and pattern

‘Under the sea’ is a big theme, alongside water-like fabrics. Hand-drawn, unfinished and artistic styles stand out. Florals are larger-scale and art-focused. Ethnic geometrics are reinvented in pale, washed-out tones. Stripes are important.
