Fabric Trends for Fall/Winter 2021-22
Comfort, nostalgia and sustainability are some of the key concepts of the season that also conquer the kingdom of fabrics. As consumers see closer to a future with a possible relaxation of restrictive measures, the feeling of comfort to which they were accustomed is consolidated, together with the need to feel protected, which determines the trends and the finish of the fabrics . The ecological aspect continues to rise with the development of recycled materials as a hallmark of many collections. Trendstop brings FashionUnited readers the key fabric trends spotted at Women’s Fashion Week presentations and catwalks for Fall / Winter 2021-22.
Reducing excess waste caused by the fashion industry continues to drive exploration of the creative use of disused materials and recycled manufacturing. The Bridal Reuse trend is the quiet and fun use of a garment that most only wear once, and this trend proposes an ecological option with decorative and elegant materials. Contemporary silhouettes and fresh concepts rescue a material that looks old-fashioned and give it a modern air.
Tumble dried vintage textures
The vintage revival combined with the consumer’s need to touch things influences the textures and finishes of seasonal fabrics. Fabrics are fluffy with wavy surfaces in wardrobe bottoms. The wash and tumble dry effects transport us to a time-worn nostalgia and cozy comfort that has become a consumer staple.
Premium Fluid Sports T-shirt
Even sports-inspired materials are taking advantage of the comfort trend and the growth of the luxury dresswear market. The athletic top gets more fluid with easy silhouettes focused on comfort. The premium quality yarns are soft and silky to the touch, improving drape and elevating simple and straightforward pieces suitable for use both inside and outside the home.
