The fabrics for summer 2021 can roughly be divided into two main themes:
Lightness and Raw Surfaces. In addition, two fabrics stood out during
Premiere Vision: the number of knits and the focus on denim. Of course,
these fabrics also fit in with the overarching themes, but we will still
highlight them because they received a lot of attention on the exhibition
floor and are seen as important materials for summer 2021.
Lightness for SS21
The Lightness theme connects to the call for transparency and the fluid
world in which we live. Adapting to the spirit of the times and the
situation demands flexibility, pliability and the ability to transform
quickly. The layering of the fabrics creates an astonishing effect in
combination with ultra-light (iridescent) coatings.
Lightness. Rounded edges, softened corners, imposing motifs, lace
structures, movement, super flowing, shimmer, vibrate colours.
Raw surfaces for SS21
Raw Surfaces is the answer to the increasing digitization which
increases the need for tactility as a contrast to the hard materials we
have in our hands every day, like our phone, keyboard, screens, etc.
Classic designs or weaving patterns are given a new look by combining them
with other yarns. There are no more rules and creativity makes uniformity
Raw surfaces. 3D elaborations, enhancing materials, classic design
with a new look, multilayers, linen, tactility.
Knits for SS21
The need for softness does not only arise from the need for tactility
but also serves to protect against the events of the world. As if we want
to protect ourselves against the harsh reality.
Knits: zero weights, feather-light garments, smoothness,
sophisticated, open structures, transparency.

It’s impossible to imagine living without jeans, especially now that
they have been accepted even in a more formal working environment. New
techniques make it possible to create optical illusions and even classic
designs such as the diamond are used to give denim a new look and expand
New denim: comfort, tie dye, batik, lace structures, brutalistic
Dynamic, dehydrated mineral tones, floral and vegetal tones. Colors can
be used ton sur ton, in majestic monochromes or even for a color
clash. Play, make your own range and open new horizons.
