SS22 Runway Top Fabrics

Material Mash-Up

The SS22 shows suggest a deep sensory experience through their strong material language. The choice of fabrics in itself emphasizes elements of storytelling and captures the most relevant concepts of the season: joy, wellness, comfort and spirituality. Most relevant fabrics include sheers and sparkles. While transparent materials feel more light than ever, they liberate and accentuate the nude body. At the same time, sparkles with a glitz and glamour appeal, tell stories of spontaneous fun and promise parties. At the same time, classics, such as denim and leather, are back on the radar, which seems unsurprising as people are seeking for more timeless essentials and long-lasting garment properties. This season, these more rigid staples are interpreted in full-looks for a new take and modern appeal. 

Lace and crochets continue their trending strike, while clients dive into romantic themes and appreciate handmade charms to take the strong female notion of the season to a whole new level. Innovation can be found in technical knits and texture, where creativity and technology begin to fuse. Designers are proposing more 3d effects via innovative techniques to boost their creative limits. Meanwhile, technical jerseys support complete ease of movement and a sports-inspired focus on wellness. Such materials also enable considerations on more sustainable productions including repurposed plastic waste etc.
