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.
