Lots of softness both on the surface and in depth, and a feeling of flexible comfort.
First and foremost among the samples, wool aspects, warm handles and heavier weights point ahead to casual overshirts verging on jackets. On the knit side, the selections for ecological fabrics showed the strongest increases.
Somewhere between a jacket and a shirt, plaids were chosen for their non-traditional colours, in slightly larger and more robust versions. This story also carries over to boiled-knit versions, as a way to play on an ambiguity between underlayers and overlayers.
Velours and velveties continue to please, as long as they are revisited. Jacquard textures and jacquard terries, matt and shine effects, velvety ribs update sweatshirts and the tracksuit spirit. Bouclés and hairy effects are less thick, and sampled for cosy knits.
Buyers are increasingly determined to favour the eco-responsible sector. Organic cotton fleece and jerseys, all the respectful finishes and recycled polyamides and polyesters play an important role in collection plans.
