The tweed is a classic in the spring collections. We don’t necessarily call it trendy, because it’s a constant feature of premium collections inspired by Chanel’s evergreen or Balmain’s rocky version. The tweed jacket is the most popular piece. Then knitwear, dresses and to finish skirts or shorts. Zara has woolly tweed in January, but the premium brands have instead delivered cotton blends, adapted to last longer in the season. The most common details are the metal buttons, contrast tapes and raw edges. Globally tweed is 4% of spring collections patterns: 5% if just considering ready-to-wear.
