Four themes for SS12 to be presented at Intertextile Beijing
28
Jan '11
Taking place this spring Intertextile Beijing Apparel Fabrics will offer a glimpse into which fabrics, colours and textures will be in style for both international and Chinese Spring/Summer 2012 (SS12) markets. From 30 March – 1 April 2011 at China International Exhibition Centre, Beijing, China, and the on-site trend forums will help guide industry professionals' designs and manufacturing processes in line with the coming season.

Using exhibitors' products, internationally renowned trend forecasters incorporate references on specific colour ranges, directions on fabrics, on prints and on garments, delivering an energetic insight for SS12. The Intertextile Directions Trend Committee, comprising of NellyRodi Agency – Paris, France; Doneger Creative Services – New York, the US; Sachiko Inoue – Tokyo, Japan and Elementi Moda – Milan, Italy have forecasted a palette of very delicate and serene colours together with a mix of bright as well as black and radiant hues, setting the scene for a season full of optimism (Hall 2).

The SS12 trends are broken down into four themes:
ORIGIN: A breath of fresh air floats over this theme. Pastel colours are combined with chalky neutrals to create extremely soft harmonies – white, sky blue, beige, pale greys and pale pinks are used together or combined with silver.Fabrics are mainly light and transparent - voiles, poplins, devoré transparency, ultra-light gauzes.

PATINA: A desire to suspend time, to reconstruct our own privacy far from the maddening, crowded world.Colours are beige neutrals (bread, butter, milk…) combined with greenish or bluish chambrays that literally breathe manual work. Fabrics range from chambrays, slubbed cloths or basket weaves to marled effects for pure linens or else blended with Tencel, lyocell, viscose or cotton.

GLEE: An urge for eccentricity blows through this theme by mixing all different cultures together and breaking the established rules by combining infinite amounts of prints.Colours are acidic and enlivened by exotic touches.Fabrics are elaborated in a vintage spirit: fancy yarn voiles, summer tweeds, crochets.

REFLECTION: The glamorous ambience of a nightclub for daywear.The colours themselves give off the same impression of luminescence. Black and the two dark tones accentuate the “black light” effect.Silk - either pure or blended - is in the spotlight.As well as all the synthetics: polyamide, polyester, rayon or acetate. Ultra-stretch: increased importance of spandex.

Fabrics China, which is geared towards Chinese market trends for suitings (Hall 1A) and ladieswear (Hall 8B) will also take visitors through four colourful themes highlighting a simple but cheerful glance for SS12.

The four stories take us through:
Revival: The return to 1950's values brings us hope, with colours exuding freshness that are inspired by the romantic and fresh country garden.Flowing chiffon, tulle, satin and lace as well as lightweight cottons, poplin and washed linen are popular fabrics.
