Technical materials evolve with crisp, crunchy finishes to create a crinkled effect. To create a futuristic look, a lunar-inspired glow can be applied to cratered surfaces with the use of shimmering metallic finishes or dark Space Age color ways.



    SOFT PIXELS

High-tech pixel prints are softened for Fall/Winter with subdued tones and blurry effects, revamping fabrics with a contemporary digitized aesthetic. For a high-end appeal, technical designs translate to luxury level with burn-out lacy textures and satin finishes.



    SCANDI INSPIRED

Perfect for new winter collections, we see cozy knits executed in soft wooly yarns that look reminiscent of traditional Scandinavian patterns. Meanwhile, Nordic interiors inspire graphic upholstery prints with a retro feel. Surfaces run the gamut from soft to rustic.
