Need to know: Premiere Vision SS18
The pioneering fabric mills have spoken and SS18 is well and truly underway as Premier Vision draws to a close. So what fabric innovations can we expect next Summer?
“Texture and captivating handles remained paramount at Premiere Vision for SS18. From parched, dry touch cottons and crepes to puckered seersuckers and woven structures with a magnified aesthetic, tactile intrigue was the overriding theme. Where the focus on texture was less so, seemingly impossible light weights were found in sports inspired paperweight nylons and airlight, illusionary feminine tulles. Wet look vinyl shines and lustrous lurex fibres cement an 80s inspired look for the spring summer season.”
As romantic as this sounds, what does it actually mean?
In a nutshell: Texture, texture, texture! Explore the realms of how new tactile textures can be brought into fabrics which, as a result, takes the pressure off prints to generate visual excitement. Sitting along side these textures are the visually appealing fabrics such as bright vinyls, embroidered tulles and lurex viscose knits which are fun, feminine and leave a lot of room for experimenting.
