Trendstop: Material on the Catwalks: Top 3 Editors’ Picks SS 2016

Our print and graphics team have been analysing material innovations on the Womenswear Spring/Summer 2016 catwalks. Pinpointing the strongest directions for the season, these trends are presented in our Materials on the Catwalks report.

Raw Linen Canvas – Edun




A rustic dimension is introduced to the catwalk this season, demonstrating a focus on linen canvas qualities. Rough, raw woven fibres are executed in neutral colourways, occasionally detailed with loose yarns or textured edgings.

Nouveau Rustic Weaves – Issey Miyake




Utilising materials like raffia, homespun knits and basket-like textures, new developments include combinations of surfaces, elegant layering and exaggerated loose yarn detailing, along with clean-cut silhouettes.

Anti-Grain Leathers – Jil Sander




Leathers evolve with clean-cut forms and super-smooth structures, creating skins that are almost fabric-like. These anti-grain surfaces offer supple materials with lightweight properties for Spring/Summer womenswear, and can be manipulated and shaped with ease.
