Spring-Summer 2017 Fashion trends: Colors and Textiles

British Exhibitors at Première Vision proved that black is not in fashion


After we've made an overview of the British Exhibitors' Spring-Summer 2017 fabrics collections at Première Vision February 2016, we can now summarize the key Colors and Textile directions for the next year's hot season.

For Spring-Summer 2017 the focus of British mills is on boldness, invention and audacity, built on strong foundations of integrity, quality and respect for the production environment of textiles.

UK mills continue to invest in advanced technologies for sustainable and transparent manufacture. Traditional textile product categories and seasons become less relevant and nothing is what it was or seems anymore, the boundaries between male and female, winter and summer, formal and casual, city and country are all but disappearing.

The overlap between fabrics for apparel, home interior and sport becomes more fluid and opportunities open up to present a whole lifestyle offer. Spring-Summer 2017 offers up new alliances and harmonious confrontations from British companies with captivating new collections to truly treasure and enjoy.

Playful

This is a joyful mix of unexpected connections; mis-matched color and pattern create exciting, provocative and decorative design collisions. The idea is to use lots of color in one fabric and not be shy, to mix and not match: this is a story of playful and ever-inspirational treasures, rich ethnicity and heritage taken from around the world to savour. The jumbling of yarns and weaves in decorative eccentricity has a distinctly modern outcome, creating an abstract rhythm and a rich color palette.

COLORS: 1 - 8 Vibrant and dazzling tones
1.candy pink TP 16-1723; 2.tangerine TP 16-1350; 3.crimson TP 19-1557; 4.honey TP 16-0954; 5.mint green TP 16-6329; 6.aquamarine TP 17-4724; 7.cobalt TP 19-3947; 8.loganberry TP 19-3217.

Explorer

This theme began as a reflection of the movement and change in the world we inhabit -non-seasonal and all weather textiles, the blurring of rural and urban living, functionality and performance requirements and pioneering travel wear, be it for the commute to work or that special holiday. A trail-blazing spirit that encompasses both natural and technical research and unites these two ingredients in an advanced level of development. This modern edit is refined and discreet yet displays total self-confidence.

COLORS: 9 - 16 Strong yet practical shades.
9.celadon TP 15-0522; 10.azure TP 16-4032; 11.bronze mist TP 17-1036; 12. blue turquoise TP 17-4328; 13. teal TP 18-4026; 14. clay TP 17-1227; 15. slate TP 18-0201; 16.tabasco TP 19-1334.

Dream

A graceful and serene story that conveys simplicity and fragility of nature and heirloom pieces. Delicate items are placed together to create a new unity, silently cherished and meditative. The compositions are intuitive, unplanned and ephemeral, familiar and unfamiliar at the same time. Handmade and craffed textiles are important, as are their sensitive and intriguing narratives. The mood is one of quiet reflection, inward-looking and distinctly personal that reaches into the soul of this look.

COLORS: 17 - 24 Light and shadowy nuances.
17. ivory TP 11-0103; 18. sand TP 15-1214; 19.woodsmoke TP17- 1022; 20. feather grey TP 16-4702; 21.rose TP 17-1718; 22.lime TP 16-0540; 23. Lavender blue TP 16-3930; 24. buttercup TP 14-1036.
