FW21 Knit Focus: Texture and Tactility

Tactility is key for FW21 developments. 

By now, the desire for comfort is entirely manifested in consumers’ minds. Designers are trying to explore creative techniques and stitches to innovate knits and creatively respond to the continuous demand for the category. Trending adaptions that bring dimension and novelty to knits include dimensional stitches, bobbles, engineered cables, bubbly and brushed yarns or irregular patterns and yarn-mixes. The fully knitted look seamlessly matches this trend and enhances the cozy and textured effect of such new hyper-tactile knits. The new textures are also creating a sumptuous effect and satisfy the desires for touch and movement. Consider this trend for details or more toned-down adaptions for commercial products or go bold for exclusive statement pieces.
