Blossom Première Vision, sustainability in the Spring-Summer 25 pre-collections

The Blossom Première Vision show at the Carreau du Temple next 13 and 14 December will spotlight pre-collections by luxury and high-end ready-to-wear suppliers. A preview of new textiles, leathers and accessories that align with the constant evolution of raw materials and production processes. The innovations for Spring-Summer 25 spark a fruitful dialogue between sustainable development and eye-catching creations.

Certified Silks

Weavers are mobilizing to offer qualities that guarantee ecologically responsible farming and production methods. Les Tissages Perrin is developing organic versions of its plain and figured silks. Bouton Renaud’s jacquard and panne velvets are FSC-certified for viscose and GOTS-certified for silk. The silks at Gratacos come in a range of sustainable compositions. Organic cottons span mini motifs and semi-plains, for a festive casual effect. Figured twills and mikados feature XXL floral motifs on GRS-label recycled synthetic bases.

Virtuous Ornaments

Embellishments are also developing more sustainable compositions, in cotton with embroideries by Albert Guegain or Federico Aspesi applied on 100% organic cotton poplin, muslin or denim. Highly visual, richly crafted textiles that respect social and environmental standards, and also developed in print by Fasac, for example, offer new designs on traceable materials. FSC viscose or natural organic fiber blends are treated with new printing technologies. With “Textile Vision”, pattern placement is adjusted to the millimeter using laser recognition technology. With Kornit technology, printing is freed from the constraints of screen printing, by applying pigment without water, while also eliminating the frame engraving stage.

Recycled High-Fancy

Players in the high-end textiles and ornaments sectors are embracing recycling and upcycling. At Malhia Kent, tweeds and jacquards are designed using recycled high-fancy yarns. At Vialaton Martin & Fils, trimmings are made from yarns from dormant stock. For accessories, patches and labels from Emmetex Etichettificio can contain up to 80% textile waste from their own production offcuts. On some accessories, they use needlework for decorative upcycling.

Non-Toxic Exotics

In leather, a focus is on exotic skins. Tanning methods are usually less diversified in this sector, which includes species such as alligator, crocodile, python, ostrich and shagreen. However, new developments now make it possible to source metal-free tanned exotic skins, as at La Patrie, an Italian tannery that invests in R&D for non-toxic exotic skins, which earned them LWG gold certification. 

In addition to lower environmental impact, these new methods also offer real health benefits. The leathers are particularly well suited to products such as watch straps, which are in constant contact with the wearer’s skin.
