“It doesn’t matter which season it is, the very essence of the show is the access it offers to the latest trends,” commented Ricard Raspall, from the Spanish exhibitor, Reactive. Ricard Raspall is a knitwear specialist who has worked in the textiles sector for more than 30 years. “I have done great business with the northern central buying companies.”

Strong indicator

Accoridng to organisers, this inter-season event is established as a “strong indicator of how a season is developing”. Drawing on the Best survey of 291 exhibitors conducted at Première Vision Paris, the Première Vision fashion team aimed to add new creative energy to the Spring/Summer 2017 season.

Driven by the positions of buyers in each market sector (menswear, womenswear, casualwear, sportswear and outdoorwear), the event focused on the key colours, fabrics and decorations for Spring-Summer 2017.

Material and decoration highlights

The event featured the latest material and decoration trends for the Spring/Summer 2017 season. These were divided into five main themes.

Gently-Textured Surfaces feature subtle seersuckers in shirting, small cloquées and printed crepons, softened crepe, piqués and pleats in warp and weft or knitted fabrics. Consistent Fluidity is about the softness of viscose or cupro-cotton blends, silks with body and drape and flowing double knits.

Essential items for Spring-Summer 2017

The Nelly Rodi trend forecasting agency also provided a list of the 10 essential items for the Spring/Summer 2017 season for both women and men.

For men, the trend bureau suggests a minimalist windcheater with a narrow zip and satin finish, to be worn in the city over a blazer or suit; light knitwear, for example, a fine sweater to wear against the skin like a tee-shirt under a suit; and baggy chinos with rolled turn-ups worn with a tight-fitting jacket. This wardrobe can be complemented by a denim blazer and a collarless granddad shirt.

Women are advised to dress into an edge to edge summer coat, to be worn with wide-leg pants in a casual style. The Judo or Kendo jacket in flannel or neoprene, masculine style, edge to edge with no buttons, can also be worn belted or oversize next summer. Also, the bureau suggests the XXL wide-legged high-waisted palazzo pant, loose shirt-dresses, worn with trousers, as well as structured flounces for dresses, tops and skirts.
