Autumn-winter 2017-18 DOWNLOAD PDF


Craft & high-tech, love & nostalgia, comfort & elegance – those are the buzzwords set to reign supreme in Autumn/Winter 17/18. Textiles trends will be mostly about a natural approach coupled with functional, discreetly integrated technology. More than ever before, the focus is on textures and irregular surfaces. Even though loud-coloured elements, wallpapers and glitz still serve as key mood creators, the overall atmosphere is turning calmer, more melancholy.

Colours: Colours calm down and become less expressive than in previous seasons, although there is still bright elements. Given the many changes in fashion, the colours indicate a certain stability. Our season colours are derived from the emerging romanticism in all trends: A delicate, light rose hue named “Love me Tender” and a new, elegant “Cherry Brown”, with which the colour brown reappears on the fashion scene.
