This week Trendstop present three materials directions that will translate across a variety of product categories.

Eyelet Lace explores one of the season’s key fabrications with contemporary iterations on a classic technique while wovens take on a luxurious feel in Liquid Wovens with fluid, handles and high-shine finishes.

Bonded Jerseys

Jersey fabrications have a more substantial feel for SS19 as marled finishes in soft pastel and pale grey tones come with bonded backers. Primary brights add an unexpected colour pop to neutral colour-ways while fluffy brushed surfaces provide a textural contrast.

Eyelet Lace

Broderie anglaise is updated for spring with modern patternation and seasonal motifs. Traditional embroidery, cutwork and needle lace techniques create tropical palm leaves, summer blooms and minimalist geometric effects for a fresh take on classic styles.

Liquid Wovens

Wovens take on a liquid look with lustrous high shine finishes. Gauzy sheers with glazed and glossy finishes have a reflective, almost metallic quality while coated surface treatments give fluidity to heavier weights.
