Fall-Winter 2016/2017 fashion trends: Yarns

'Climate variations are the starting point of Fall-Winter 2016/2017 for Première Vision Yarns.Wooly, hairy and mohair yarns blur visuals. Checks and stripes melt into textures, creating misty aspects. Chines are delicately colored, throwns are worked in semitones and visuals will be softly blurry. Knits and weaves resemble powdery snow. They are thick and cozy with fluffy yarns, chenille and bouclette. There is a new shine coming this season, thanks to glazed surfaces, created by lustrous silks and synthetics. Metalloplastics will look crystalline. Viscose, cotton and polyamide blend with cashmere or alpaca, to join together freshness and warmth, to be smooth and downy. Fall-Winter yarns and fibers make cozy airy handles possible. The feeling is silent and protective, and aspects subtly vibrant'.

Fall-Winter 2016/2017 fashion trends: Yarns

The Fall-Winter 2016/2017 yarns evoke climatic variations, and trace the fluctuations in naturally occurring phenomena. Materials are transformed, suggesting rain, mist, snow, frost and cold lights. Fibres are blended, growing airy or tighter, to warm, envelope and embellish in any weather.

Mists and drizzles

Details merge into a misty softness and the light vaporousness of fibres. Close blends of merino wool, viscose and silk combine with synthetic microfibres for light knits. Chiné yarns, knops, twists and synthetic multi filaments recount the nuanced tones of rainy weather.

Powdery snow

Textures and handles evoke snowy powder, with its thickness and its look. Woollen spun yarns and cotton cashmere or cotton viscose blends bring out a compact softness. Roving yarns, synthetic or artificial kemps and macro-count cottons are combined in fluffy knits.

Frost and ice

Yarns take on frozen aspects, revealing a crystalline shine, and sparkling like frost. Transparent effects and silvery or iridescent metalloplastic kemps enliven surfaces. Low twist silks, shiny viscose and coarse-count microfibre polyester reveal a glazed lustre.

Light vibrates, colors are nuanced and draw a wintry sky in soft variations. Bouclette yarns, throwns, vigoureux yarns fuse and create textures fluctuating between smooth and grainy. Multi-ply throwns and matt-shiny multi-tones are combined in half tones and depict the colourful streaks of a shifting horizon.
