A preview of the trends at Texworld for summer 2015. More than 620 exhibitors, including 81 newcomers, will be presenting their designs for summer 2015 “Mash-up” is the new trend theme for the 2015 spring/summer season: an invitation to immerse yourself in the inspiring worlds dreamt up by our two Artistic Directors, Louis Gérin and Grégory Lamaud.
The season’s new palettes of colours are composed mainly of rich hues, with pigments inspired by nature and enhanced by using new technologies! Encounters and clashes of materials! The trend book unfolds “Mash-up” in 6 areas of influence, including one dedicated to denim and the last to accessories, to help you discover new horizons and the artists’ worlds, from which to draw inspiration and ideas.
For example, the sculpture chair by Eric Klarenbeek, made from straw, with a thin bioplastic coating, in 3D prints, which uses organic substrate for growing mushrooms, evoking the symbiosis between nature and technology, an idea that can be transposed to collections.
A preview of colourways along the theme of “Frontière Indicible”, remarkable with the very urban “Horizon Ardent” blue and vibrant with the “Flash saillant” pink: the embodiment of a theme that Louis Gérin and Grégory Lamaud intended to be “less synthetic, more authentic” and combined with airy mesh, fluffy flocking or downy highlights.
More than 620 exhibitors, including 81 new weavers, will be presenting products for summer 2015 .More than 620 international weavers will reveal their new collections for spring/summer 2015 at the next Texworld show, from 17 to 20 February. An increase of 10% compared with the show in February 2013.
This time around, the calendar has looked favourably on attendees coming from Asia: the Chinese New Year will fall two weeks before Texworld opens its doors. We would also draw attention to the vigorous growth in Turkey, still driven by the quality of its products and by strong demand for proximity sourcing. It asserts its position as the country with second-highest number of exhibitors.
Texworld counts 81 new weavers, coming from Germany, South Korea, China, India, Indonesia, Hong Kong, Portugal, Turkey and Vietnam.
The top 3 countries in terms of number of new exhibitors has changed compared with the show in February 2013, with India now in 3rd place: China remains in first place, Turkey comes second followed by India which has taken the place of South Korea. The latter is now in 4th place.
