First review of Spring / Summer 17 Fashion Orientations

The spring summer 17 season resonated with joyful and effervescent dissonance.

It showcased fruitful disharmonies, and gender alliances with a delicious ambiguity. 

The season’s fashion orientations enthusiastically and creatively highlighted complementarities between the various activity sectors and know-hows at Premiere Vision Paris, between yarns, fabrics, leathers and skins, and textile designs and components for clothing, leather-goods, footwear and jewellery.

New fashion directions were on fire, joyously destabilizing the obvious. They were generous, displaying porosities and transfers of know-how, especially in fantasy and decoration.

They were a clear incitement to refine anything rudimentary with developments that were rich in poetry and technology.

They took an offbeat approach to romanticism, posing a tart softness on naive florals and patterns, offsetting it with a rebellious, surreptitiously perturbing spirit.

They swung the experimental towards reality in radiant realisations, transparencies with substance, rich fluidity, elegantly bumpy textures, chic plastics, sensual elastics, and frank graphics. 

Colours celebrate either subtlety or grandiloquence. They evoke a decisive emphasis on pale and warm tones, and don’t combine neutrals other than to reveal a tasty, floral or artificial radiance.

Fashion information encourages designers to grab on to exhibitors’ creations with a passion, to overturn uses, play around with underlayers/overlayers, and a body nicely augmented with technology. To have fun connecting sports and evening looks, combining ethnic influences and performance, rawness with softness and suppleness, flowers and menswear, messy stripes and colour blends.

As the season’s standard-bearer, wonkiness asserts its positive values, gently striking at points of view, and shifting the centres of observation and creation. It unfolds in mischievous and cheery discoveries, for a deliberately non-conformist season.
