NEW YORK — Sabine le Chatelier, deputy fashion director of Première Vision, presented key fabric themes for fall-winter 2014-15 at Première Vision Preview here last week, including:
• Color and shape mixtures: Blending naturals with synthetics, smooth and textured and matte and shiny materials, double-sided prints, sculptural silhouettes in bold patterns, and multicolor or color-blocked styling in women’s; shadow prints, minimal decoration on trousers and shirts, and wool and cotton mixes in men’s.
• Textures and crafts: Slubbed yarns, jacquards, irregular patterns, uneven dyes, waxed or coated fabrics, tweeds and flannels and mineral materials such as copper and bronze yarns and effects.
• Volume matters: Fake furs and mohairs, puffy embroideries, light quilting and foamy knits.
Alberta Ferretti's "Rainbow Week" sweaters are back. The designer closed her #MFW show with a few day-of-the-week sweaters, which first debuted on the catwalk last January as part of the pre-fall 2017 collection. #wwdfashion (📷: @delphineachard)
