denim premiere

We have been posting a lot about the Denim Première Vision trade shows. The latest exhibitions have been showing all the denim previews for spring and summer 2017. Here are some highlights about what’s going to be in store in about a year and a half from now.

Akkus Textile pastel colors

PASTELS
Leave the winter blues behind! As soon as temperatures rise, the color intensity of your jeans will follow –pastel shades of light green, pink and blue embellished sometimes with interesting coatings are in the pipeline.

PATCHES
Following the music festival mood that pervaded the show, patched jeans and denim vests in mid- to dark blue hues are likely to be a big thing, especially due to customization and DIY possibilities that the trend might offer to consumers.

TOUCH ME!
The settling of textured garments as a key fashion trend hasn’t gone unnoticed by the denim industry. Textile surfaces, fruit of geometrical shapes, will be yelling “touch me!”

LIGHT AS AN AIR BREEZE
Featherweight denims with little shrinking, high shape recovery properties and a super soft touch were present all across the fair grounds.

SALT MARSHES
Degraded- and blend jeans imitating the look of sea waves with different tonalities of blue.

DESERT JOURNEY
Sprayed denim with a worn-out look and various earth tones –especially camel- will share prominence together with pastels during SS’17.
