Premiere Vision set out its key trends for SS19 in textile and leather. Key themes were Delicacy, Suppleness, Hybrid and Sustainable. Yarns & Fabrics featured colour combinations, hybrid materials and finishes with contrasting tones. Yet leathers focus was on natural finishes and rolled minimal texture patterns, creating a modern colourful edge on traditional leather-working industry. Sustainability & performance were key factors this year with the promotion of vegetable tanned leather products rather than Chromium and a key logo based system promoting the performance of each material. ie. Its waterproof rating, its breathability, its production footprint. All showing the emphasis on sustainable fashion production for the future.
