Fabrics & Designs AW2122 / Fancies: Refreshed authentics

Decoration highlights from all sectors at Première Vision Fabrics and Designs, with key developments in patterns, prints, jacquards, yarn-dyeds, lace and embroidery, for dressy and everyday fashions.

[one_third][/one_third][two_third_last]Decorations take a playfully offbeat approach to classic, traditional and authentic motifs. Familiar visuals are reassuring and comforting without losing any of their originality and power. Herringbones appear fragmented, geometrics are optical and magnetic. A generous and sumptuous approach to embellishment prevails in silks, laces and jacquards. Flowers bring a touch of elsewhere, a distant folklore that stirs a desire for escape, for travel. An opulence found again in the animal world where wildlife is majestic and untamed. Authenticity is restored thanks to eco-responsible products including recycled synthetics, linens and traceable viscoses.[/two_third_last]

Offbeat herringbones

Herringbones figure prominently this season, worked on every kind of ground and in various and disrupted graphic styles. Polyesters reveal jacquard herringbones with hazy contours and a blurry look created by a cross-hatched shine. They are interspersed by cut-yarns in recycled synthetics, interrupted by stripes in prints, colorfully fused and blurred in jacquards. Dark colorways are set off by luminous dots, almost a colorful digital blur, on printed knits, or in a shiny-lined, highlighter pen version in jacquards.<iframe src=”″ width=”960″ height=”540″ frameborder=”0″ allow=”autoplay; fullscreen” allowfullscreen></iframe>Exhibitors: FCN Textiles, Gamateks Tekstil, Mandarin, Gallus, Adalberto Estampados, Piero Galli, Iluna Group, Ozcimen Tekstil.

Optical simplicity
Readings are disrupted by optical effects that blur the vision. Contrasting colored graphics are inspired by offbeat geometrical shapes. Multiplied triangles and hypnotizing trapezoidal shapes seem to stretch off into infinity. In silkies, jacquards are striated on both sides, alternating the thickness of lines to blur the shapes. A meticulous disorder subverts simple readings and disturbs our perception. Tulles lend an evanescent atmosphere to this well-ordered universe. In prints, these contrasting optical designs take a digitized approach in satins made from traceable viscose, and the look of luminescent pixels emerges in traceable-linen shirtings.<iframe src=”″ width=”960″ height=”540″ frameborder=”0″ allow=”autoplay; fullscreen” allowfullscreen></iframe>Exhibitors: Klasikine Tekstile, La Estampa, Hamzagil emprime, Parlamis Atadan Tekstil, Design39, Atelier Natanski Paris, Tessitura Colombo Antonio, B-Blossom.

Sumptuous embellishment
An Art Deco inspiration transports motifs into a world of generous embellishment, elaborated in enlarged scales that fill surfaces. A warmly ornamental approach in wool cut-yarn jacquards, and prints with accentuated, fully plumped curves. Finely-drawn Leavers’ lace features outlined decorations with accentuated raised effects, enriched with the fleeting shine of metallic yarns. In silkies, decoration is inspired by feathers, with silk-blend jacquards with a heightened shine. Filled surfaces with a royal mysterious look, playing on light and shadows. Embroidered tulles have a 3D look, and integrate beads and feathers.<iframe src=”″ width=”960″ height=”540″ frameborder=”0″ allow=”autoplay; fullscreen” allowfullscreen></iframe>Exhibitors: Monteoliveto, Gallus, Dentelles Jean Bracq, Tex.Athenea, Beauvillain-Davoine, Khoder Bros Group, FCN Textiles, Wedtex, Tissages Denis & Fils.

Majestic fauna
Woodland and flying animals spring from dark forests, and rule over surfaces. Wild four-legged beasts, foxes, deer and oryx are given a modern take, both in prints on waterproof assemblies, and in sparkling cut-yarn jacquards in silkies. Birds take flight on the four corners of fabrics, for fantastic placements in garments. Rapacious birds emerge – from eagles on the hunt in jacquards to fierce-looking peacocks that whirl inside patterns. Fauna is thoroughly modern, brightened up by Lurex yarns and contrasting outlines.<iframe src=”″ width=”960″ height=”540″ frameborder=”0″ allow=”autoplay; fullscreen” allowfullscreen></iframe>Exhibitors: Hurel, The Boy’s Print, Carlo Pozzi, FCN Textiles, Stampa Studio, Dutel Création, Fasac Divisione Tessile.

Folkloric plant-life
A folklore side to flowers and adornments puts the accent on mixed know-hows from a variety of fields. For a winter that transports us beyond our own borders, flannels are embroidered with brightly colored flowers, and woolen jacquards echo a tapestry spirit. Strongly graphic vegetation reveals points of construction, for sporadic visuals evoking pixels. Taffetas venture into hazy and blurred folk looks, while laces find inspiration in an airy ornamental style. Scales are mid-sized and backgrounds are dark. Jacquards in viscose blends update suits by drawing on a far-off fantasy.<iframe src=”″ width=”960″ height=”540″ frameborder=”0″ allow=”autoplay; fullscreen” allowfullscreen></iframe>Exhibitors: Brecotessile, Elena Romero, Dutel Création, Clerici Tessuto Industry, Antik Dantel, Roja Embroidery & Lace, Carlo Pozzi.
