For autumn/winter 15/16 the following five textile trend themes are defined: POWER CLASSICS, HIGH FUNCTIONS, COSY OUTDOORS, FANCY DELIGHTS und HYBRID PRINTS. They faces clarity, high-tech, normalcy and escapade in a progressive implementation. 


There is an enormous longing for established classics in terms of both substance and style. Themes such as normcore, 1980s sports, 1990s streetwear, and Bauhaus satisfy this desire for more simplici- ty. Of particular focus are neoprene sweatshirts, tech jerseys, quilted chevrons, bonded wool patterns, and classic printed patterns such as houndstooth and Glen plaid.


Extremes present both a challenge and an inspiration at the same time. Futuristic, tech-savvy, active, searching, and functional are the verbal drivers of these highly technical trends. Thermo-sensory co- lors, air cells, integrated measurement sensors, and chrome and rainbow finishes augment fashion and textiles. Padded mesh, nylon, and stretch fabrics are graphically enhanced with polygonal, photo- realistic or 3D prints.


Pure nature! Wrapped up in cuddly materials like fur, down, cordu- roy, fustian, velour and chunky knits. Comfortable, sensory tailoring in the boyfriend cut underscores the casual esprit, made up to date with waist lacing and high boots. English plaids, Harris tweed and traditional folklore patterns blend with nature-inspired surfaces which imitate materials like marble, wood, and moss.


Extravagance and humor, dandy and magic, beauty and gourmet, fetish and design, baroque and disco, bow ties and tuxedos. This pursuit of the most beautiful and the best brings together glitter and jacquard, fur and sheepskin, lacquer and gold, fringe and leopard print, lamé and yak, flora and fauna (-prints).


The autumn/winter prints 15/16 are dominated by progressive variants from realistically natural and graphical futuric motives. Often in combination with spatial dimentionality. Natural inspirations begin with landscapes, mountains and waves - futhermore wood, marble, flower and leaf impressions are used up to abstructed leopards, snakes and moths. Polygonal patterns, camouflages and patchwork represent modern geometrical and organical pictures.
