AW 25-26 Decodings: Decoration Highlights

Radical perspectives impact this season’s decorations, further testing the boundaries of creativity and know-how. Fabrics convey singular, uncompromising artistic expressions, with a new aesthetic vocabulary that transcends the conventional, encouraging mixed-up universes and plays on contrasts. For Autumn-Winter 25/26, embellishment codes are elaborated to the extreme, forging stylistic paradoxes.

Luxurious Minimalism

Luxurious minimalism is the overarching theme of the season’s textile experiments. Pared-down designs with simple, geometric lines infuse sophisticated, dense, truly high-quality fabrics. Two contrasting directions come head to head, with a need for purity upending a powerful urge for opulence. 

In a time of overabundance and profusion, we see a return to the essential, to simplification and organization, expressed in understated, orderly textile structures. Delicate lines, grid-like networks and checkerboard patterns delicately alight on faux furs, embroidered tulles, jacquards, knits and reflecting prints.

Transparencies grow more sculptural. Diaphanous fabrics embrace a new stiffness, inviting architectural, protective volumes. Transparencies are marked by an endless variety of geometric motifs and delicately traced lines, designed with an eye to discretion. Jacquard cloqué, mold-pleated tulle, organzas, translucent knits, embroidery and laser cutouts make room for a controlled lavishness, a sense of something precious, a show of excellence.  

This new stylistic language, where luxury meets simplicity, is evident in everything from prints and embroidery to lace and jacquards.
