Textile Trends for the Autumn/Winter 2017-18 Season


It’s going to be a season when people will want to feel energy affirming the presence of things,” says Premiere Vision Trend Concertation Japanese Representative, Michiko Ikenishi, pointing out the many new textiles debuting with expressive surfaces. As society moves from a centric to an eccentric mood, textiles will see mutually clashing colour combinations, expressive methods that go against convention, and an increase in power through the creation of products that are brimming with passion. In the space below, Ms. Ikenishi discusses her three key phrases for this season – “TASTY NATURAL,” “LAYER-GAME,” and “MINERALOGY,” while introducing the textiles that are trending among the Japanese companies exhibiting at material trade fairs in Europe.
