Once limited to a casualwear universe where its natural look and authenticity were prized, today its versatility is the source of its popularity. Designers appreciate its qualities and many major houses have rightfully placed it at the heart of their latest Spring-Summer collection. Plant-based fibres continue to be attractive and are one of the key influences for Spring-Summer 23, giving full legitimacy to this versatile material. For the next season, the latest innovations concocted by spinners and fabricants invite linen to move out of its comfort zone, taking it onto a more technical, sophisticated and resolutely contemporary terrain.
Discover a selection of fabrics produced from flax presented on our Marketplace and at the live show from 8 – 10 February in Paris, on exhibitors’ stands and on the stand of the CELC. There are also more examples of linen on the CELC platform.
For Spring-Summer 23, naturalness and elegance come together to create attractive developments. Linen-based fabrics are more refined, airy and sophisticated. They display a delicate vegetal appearance with subtly apparent irregularities, the materials heralding an elegant and smart freshness.
At the heart of the creative challenges of the season, comfort is a clear prerequisite and present across all segments this season. Less formal, more fluid, citywear is relaxing and thanks to the innovations from specialists of this fibre, linen has become an essential material for meeting creative expectations.
