S/S22 Decoding by universe – Outerwear : trenches & blousons

Discover the fabric highlights of the S/S 22 season for outer wear, trench coats and blousons, selected by the Première Vision Paris fashion team.

For outerwear – trenches, jackets and summer coats – fabrics focus their attention on weights and handles, constantly furthering the quest for density, stability and comfort. At once strong and lighter in weight, they are readily imagined as dusters and light blousons, bringing a breath of fresh air to next spring-summer. An appealing materiality is emerging thanks to fine, compact fabrics for trench coats with an impeccable drape, exploring handles mixing suppleness and thickness.

Impeccable and eco-friendly

Timeless pieces are re-imagined in ultra-chic, eco-friendly qualities. Trenches and sharp little coats are traced in gabardines and canvas made of noble organic or recycled cottons.

Elegance is teamed with technology for waterproof and water-repellant outerwear drawn from the world of utility clothing and developed with fibers and finishings with a reduced environmental impact.

Knits to structure

Knits – at once compact and flexible, elaborated in natural, synthetic and elastane fiber blends – are a great option for updating structured outer wear. Trenches and blousons turn to dense and stable double-faces to construct impeccable yet malleable products with a comfortable, streamlined design.

Floaty liveliness

Influenced by technical qualities, synthetic silks are opening up to new uses, moving away from the world of dresses to make their mark on windbreakers and blousons. Lively and airy plains –  which interprete poorly ironed effects and shivering surfaces in featherweight versions – are part of a seductive “techno-nonchalant” direction that promotes freedom of movement.


Tamed rustics

A rustic look contrasts with the tangible pleasure of very soft and supple handles. The raw material has a summery thickness, and highlights the visual richness of plant asperities, visible wefts, and slubbed or flecked yarns. This summery materiality points to outerwear with expressive visuals and welcoming handles.
