Trend report from Paris

Having visited both PV Paris and Texworld, I have put together a selection of looks that I thought were interesting and new. We will cover flowers in a separate post and concentrate here on the other areas. These were notably mark making and geometric prints to carry colour and the most prevalent looks based around a strong tropical trend.

Pleated diagonal stripes

Splodge and random colour carrying prints on fabrics with surface interest, some with shots of lurex.

Pleated ombres in pastels to brights in harmonious colours.

Retro geometrics.

Beautiful tropicals with exotic birds.

Wild animals in the jungle around every corner.

Surprising skins that are not as they seem.

Elegant Tropicals in soft vintage colours.

Deep lush Forest with interesting leaves.

A wonderful feminine feel is coming through for Spring Summer 2018 with prints that appear to have been taken straight from the archives of the Royal Horticultural Society.

There are palettes of sweet bright pastel florals and exotic birds that then move into the green, blue and khaki more leafy designs. Then, as usual, there is the opposing palette with predominately black, navy and some khaki grounds to add drama to the trend.

Here are our top picks from the Sublitex collection.
