TISSU PREMIER fair, Winter 14/15

Lille, June 5 and 6, 2013

Always in complement to the fast fashion COLLECTION trade fair, TISSU PREMIER shows fabric collections for Summer and Winter. Most of the offer was for Winter with the first novelties for Winter 14/15.

SEEN AT THE FORUM
- The color range conceived by the Tissu Premier fashion team revealed 3 moods:
CHARMS, porcelain, floral tones animated by bright, shifted touches of blue and pistachio green.
WITCHCRAFT, warm neutrals and rich rusts, natural greens and ashy grays.
PHANTASMAGORIA, fresh, acidic colors associated with nocturnal darks.

- 4 themes to illustrate the exhibitors’ fabric collections :
• A calm, serene mood in soft, neutral tones.
A focus on mellow, woolen knits in light heather grays.
A spotlight on fleeces in comfy, giant bouclettes, plush-style fake furs, jacquards with a quilted look, printed and dévoré jerseys with marbleized effects.
A nature version with new rustics, irregular slubbed effects in knits and wovens, barely-colored monochromes.
Woolen, tweeded and chic or silky and glamorous winter whites complete a story with Scandinavian overtones.

• An urban, energetic mood dominated by grays and signal brights,
Denim and optical motifs have a streetwear influence.
Prints and jacquards are geometric, yarn-dyed plaids in a blanket mood are reassuring and knits have tarred, blackened looks.

• A warm, glamorous, opulent 70’s mood in rusts, fauves and cognacs.
A focus on heavy, weighty satins, velvets and sueded hands, beautiful classic woolens, furs, florals in a Lyon silk mood on black grounds, vintage wallpaper motifs.

• A romantic, fairytale mood, a Slavic inspiration in sugary colors and mysterious darks.
Key points : lace and baroque jacquards, more tender and discrete than in past seasons,
Taffeta and precious lamés in a cute, couture mood.
Dandy velvets and dobbies.
Rug motifs and folklore embroideries.
