A/W 16/17 Trend Boards (Materials & Stitches)

1. Felted and Boiled Fabric

Felted and boiled wool are also seen at the yarn shows, Pitti Filati and SpinExpro.  Especially, the boiled wool with patterns like jacquard patterns are important in the seasons AW16/17.

2. Brushed Brights

Brushed and hairy looks maintain popularity for A/W 16/17, bright and more intense colours such as yellow and red are important in the seasons. Mixed colour effects such as spaced-dyed contrasts or melange tones work for a more fade look in mohair, alpaca wool and nylon.

3. Gauzy Metallics

Burnished metallic are still important. Pointelle and holding techniques lend dimensional effects to gauzy and sheer weights in polyester, viscose and nylon blends.
