LEATHER TRENDS FOR FALL/WINTER 19-20 SEASONS
In terms of color, the perspective is changed. Color isn’t an essential indicator. During the fair, we have seen some willingnesses to blue, red, bordeaux and yellow.
In terms of leather, the most important trends are:
- • Samples of both glossy and opaque materials, interest in patent and everything connected with it, both smooth and wrinkled, like naplak and surface glazes that are “broken up”.
- • Glazed leather made in different ways: both rigid and soft with glitter under glaze, dégradé, shimmer, iridescence, pull up glazes and mirror finish glazes. Naplack with antique effect.
- • Some leathers with brush off or “worn out” effects
- • Softness is required from all materials, brushed handle for quality full-grained leather. Soft patent leather used for clothing also in demand for footwear.
- • Similar to classic split leather, suede-effect processes and long hair
- • Continuing interest in doubles with warm materials, but also with neoprene. With technological textiles from the sneakers, elasticated textiles, wool, woollen knits, weaving and jacquard fabrics.
- • Padded matelassé leather; padded leather, also without seams, that evokes the idea of a Chesterfield sofa.
- • Chamois effect leather that recreate the look of washed wool textiles, both in terms of prints, textures and also finishes.
- • Crumpled metals and effects that look like foil wrappers for chocolates.
- • Dégradé metalized leathers; laminated leathers, mirror finishes, overprinted, sometimes with shimmering finishes, drum tumbled and relief finishes.
- • Glittery leathers on black bases.
- • Flocked prints on metalized bases, mainly with animalier designs.
- • Flocked prints on chamois leather, also on opaque python.
- • Relief prints with metalized bases and 3D effects.
- • Cavallino with cut surfaces that create a range of designs and three-dimensional effects.
- • Cavallino with strong colours and black tie-dye effects, a mix of patterns, including animalier, polka dots and chequer-board that are then "dissolved" as if they were watercolours.
- • Animalier cavallino, or with glossy tips. Cavallino with long hair was also popular.
- • Cavallino with dégradé effect inspired by “shatush” highlights to sport a new look. It rather brings to mind the world of fur with the three-dimensional aspect and volume it gains.
- • Leathers with needle-punching effects, also for python.
- • Coloured leathers that evoke stained glass.
- • Regarding precious materials: fatiquored crocodile pull up, lizard both with and without livrea. The return of python.
- • Python with vintage print effects.
- • Embroidered and padded python
- • Python and alligator with neon highlights and luminescent colours.
- • Light vintage effect semi-gloss sporty materials, brush off and blackening finishes to shade materials. Vegetable leather to finish for footwear.
This system outlines a lively, complex and multifaceted season. Every fabric shows a strong, clean and essential season. Extremely contemporary.
In Tannery Tris, we take home inspiration, incentives, relations, challenge, and discovery. During this season, we will redefine the essence of leather and the meaning of our product.
