The world of fabrics and materials is sometimes in-your-face, sometimes very laid back, but always exciting! The essence of textiles lies in their material, quality, patterns and colour. Introducing the latest fabric and material trends that will influence spring/summer 2021 and beyond!
Trends include: Craftsmanship, sustainability and proximity to nature. But also some fresh takes on well-known classics. This is demonstrated by materials such as vegan leather, recycled plastics, natural fabrics and patterns, ecologically dyed, handmade and many more. The latest trends are sometimes colourful, sometimes down-to-earth, inviting us to dream and also bring our dreams to life. Join us as we embark on an inspiring journey through the world of fashion trends!
Reminiscent of a fresh sea breeze and fulfilling our longing for lightness: in this trend, ultra-light, fluttering fabrics meet pastels and shimmering colours. Soft, natural and even recycled synthetic fibres — some with lace elements — create bold, fluid silhouettes. Ultra-light coatings and shimmering effects on the fabrics are particularly eye-catching features with a luxurious effect.
Denim never gets old! Denim fabrics are an indispensable feature of fashion. In 2021, they are set to impress with a fresh new spin: classic designs such as diamond patterns are making a comeback, joined by optical illusions, batik and bold lace structures. When it comes to cuts, the focus is on comfort, with a touch of festival charm mixed in.
We are taking a small detour into the world of interiors with textiles made from high-quality, environmentally friendly materials, often with a Scandinavian, minimalistic design. Here, too, natural shades come to the fore, this time mainly on densely woven fabrics. Materials with a three-dimensional component, known as 3D textiles, create a special effect. Strong and bold: Longevity guaranteed!
