Squares and Herringbone Patterns shape 2016 women’s Autumn-Winter pre-collections
Paoletti’s style of classic fabrics for the 2016 women’s Autumn-Winter pre-collections exemplifies larger shapes and contemporary colour palettes.
Lanvin accentuates proportions in the tweed coat. Larger Herringbone patterns and masculine tailor cut are prominent features of this new collection.
Overcheck style dominates the two variations of M Missoni’s short coat. Thin contrasting window strips over a large-squared pastel coloured background. Made with Shetland wool.
Alberta Ferretti also chose to go with square shapes but opted for earthy tones in her modern skirt suits made with lambswool.
Autumn toned tweeds have been tested for the two fantasy jacket designs. The 3D interlace fully exploits the interplay between thicker slub yarns and the thinner cabled yarns with contrasting shades.
Australian designer Martin Grant has been working on experimental combinations of woollen yarns with glossy fibres and nocturnal effect. The light captured by Paoletti’s wool and Lurex textures, gives a three-dimensional aspect to the design’s rigorous shape.
