The Intertextile Shanghai Apparel Fabrics Directions Trend Committee has recently released its trend themes for A/W2017-18.


1.  ENIGMATIC

 

A luxurious, sensual and thoroughly modern story is based on the blurring delineation between what is  considered masculine and what is feminine. Tailoring is balanced by touches of lingerie.  Urban and countrified settings meet.  An artist’s sensibility touches everything with creative blends. The mood is executed in a range of warm neutral tones, frosted pastel accents and metallic touches that emphasise the imperfect, yet precious nature.

2. MANIFESTO

 

Authenticity and nostalgia resonate.  Industrial inspiration is now coupled with an upcycled/recycled and sustainable mentality. Everyday casual and street styles look to uniform dressing and the realpolitik pragmatism of protection and functionality. An active and rebellious spirit fuels newness.  A practical dichotomy of colour mixes to great effect, with deeps and pop shades converging.

3.  ECCENTRIC

 

The world becomes a fashion stage, with performers passionate about creating highly original presentations, at once playful and opulent. Embracing chic or geek, and without fear of convention or looking overdone, these fashion muses exhibit dramatic, arty showmanship. Historic, antique and ’70s references mix with casual elements for a personalised effect. Precise chromatic pairings or unexpected colour combinations bring the fantasy to life.
