The latest edition of Premiere Vision at the Parc des Expositions saw Paris’ leading fabric show mixing rawness with sophistication and natural with synthetic. Coated linens, parched textures and subtle distressing illustrated how raw and natural materials looks are becoming more refined for Spring Summer 2017.
Here are Trendstop’s key looks from the show:

Crinkled and creased effects are applied to coarse wovens creating rough dry textures with a parched feel.
Hand Drawn Prints

Naive prints have an illustrative freestyle appeal. Hand drawn graphics of birds and blooms are rendered in sketchy pencil lines.

Distressed finishes take a more considered approach with restrained fraying, placement loose threads and matted fibres.
