Nature inspired textures, tech constructions & architectural structures
See the AW17 colours and trends first at INDX Intimate Apparel 15-16 Feb 2017...
Comfort is the new luxury with the Outlands trend (above). Nature inspired textures, colours, prints and saturated brights are mixed with earthy tones and leafy designs to suggest both growth and decay. Embroidery and embellishment appear as a more organic integrated element of fabrics with heightened colours giving pieces an energetic charge. Shiny velvets are crushed, made up in soft, stretch shapes, combining both comfort and luxury.
Tech fabrics create seamless looks throughout the Synthesis theme (above left), whilst dusty retro-inspired pastels combine with upbeat reds, coral and deep teals. Retro silhouettes and fashion trends are pared back to create soft, clean-cut designs. Seamless and hidden technology and state of the art construction techniques create body-forming pieces, appearing like an extension of the body itself.
Bringing to light a darker, dreamier quality, the After Dark trend (above right) merges night and day styles effortlessly. Sensual dressing becomes more introspective throughout this aesthetic, whilst delicate laces and sheers are juxtaposed with sharp, dramatic, bondage-inspired details. Textural and visual depth is created with dark-on-dark embroidery, with twilight skies and constellations inspiring decorative details.
Sustainability becomes sophisticated within the Archetype aesthetic (above). Lightweight silhouettes with simple architectural structures are supportive and comfortable, whilst out-sized or statement fastenings act as functional embellishments. Loungewear takes influences from utility silhouettes and detailing, with layered structures and reinforcements being designed with a purpose.
