Stylesight, the industry leading global content and technology solution for professionals in the style, fashion and design sectors, unveiled its 2014 Denim Outlook at the Kingpins New York show, in an exclusive seminar for hundreds of denim's most influential professionals.

The presentation travels later this month to Los Angeles and February in Hong Kong. The bi-annual reports, Laundry S/S 14 and Construction S/S 14, highlight key direction and innovation themes in color and material that are expected to inspire and drive denim design in the upcoming season.

S/S 14 Denim Outlook, created by the Stylesight denim team, led by Senior Denim Editor Amy Leverton, reveals several technological advancements used within the laundry and construction that are driving new breeds of denim into the next season. Among the top themes outlined in Laundry S/S 14 and Construction S/S 14 include the use of laser technology, leading to a fresh wave of digital and graphic capabilities.

Denim experts can expect to see a strong progression of dramatic, high-contrast colors as well as digitally engineered photo finishes. Within the construction of garments, the reports indicate a focus on weave innovation like 3-D technology to create a hybrid of denim that is texturized and visually woven.

"The denim industry has been taking a sharp turn into a digital dimension," said Senior Denim Editor, Amy Leverton , "S/S 14 Denim Outlook is an exciting look at forward pushes into technical, graphic arenas and a new age of smart denim with a more premium look and feel. We're thrilled to showcase our analysis of key themes at this season's Kingpins."

"In their fourth season, we expect the content of these reports will continue to drive the creative inspiration and visual direction needed to innovate in design," said Frank Bober , CEO of Stylesight. "Denim is a reflection of who people are where they have been and the lives they lead. It's very personal, so brands need to nail their designs to be successful in a space crowded with competition."

Stylesight is the exclusive trend partner for all Kingpins shows, sharing tailored denim forecasts in New York, Los Angeles and Hong Kong. S/S 14 Laundry was presented at Kingpins New York by Global Trend Director Jamie Thomas, and S/S 14 Construction will be presented at Kingpins Los Angeles by Trend Director Nicole Guarascio . The presentations, tailored specifically for Kingpins, were distilled by Stylesight's denim team and reflect Stylesight's S/S 14 Megatrends report, a bi-annual forecast of macro-trends shaping all aspects of fashion and design for the coming season.
