    Half-tones take on color, they are less sad than in past seasons, lavendar blues, porcelains and celadon blues on cotton/linen canvases in all weights and on rustic canvases in linen or hemp.
    Vegetable pigment dyes, straw yellow and washed-out ochres are graded on cottons and faded linens (JB TEXTILE, TISS ET TEINT, EMMEGI, FPP, CATLAND…)

    The spotlight on pure, elegant white followed closely by creamy whites, softened beiges and greiges on cotton and cotton/polyamide gabardines, smooth, fresh, thin, stretch cotton sateens, cotton/linen satins, essential solid bases for the season.

  •  Country florals
    Scattered, vibrant little flowers are impressionist, multicolored, spotted, allover or placed as grounds, painted and "shabby", as freehand retro 40’s flowers, soft and erased or realistic and generous flowers in a giant bouquet like a placed motif … a cascade of flowers on cotton voiles, cotton/silks and romantic chiffons. (COLOR TEXTIL, TROUILLET, SPRINTEX, GALLUS, SILVER, NOTEBOOM, TECMODA…

    African, Australian or Mexican geometrics, ethnic motifs are freely reinterpreted, bright and multicolored in a pop version, contrast two-tones are more chic, signal-bright and optical. (KBC, HENITEX, ERCEA…)
  • Abstractions
    Spots, projected colors, solarized effects, aquatic reflections, graded solar tempests … informal, neo-camouflage motifs worked on all grounds, ultra-feminine or sportswear. (KBC …)

    A 50’s beach scenario, Matisse style brushstrokes, super-realist "photo" flowers, sharp, summertime vintage. (LA SEDERA, COLOR TEXTIL…)
  • Naïve two-tones
