Schmid: the trends of spring/summer 2018 – Chapter 1: Futuristic

We continue to unveil the most interesting trends under the Schmid brand: Futuristic.

Futuristic is a new athletic-chic style that combines glamour and technology. A futuristic soul for an innovative and visionary theme, where a minimalist pure-tech style blends with a sporty touch.

Elegance is not forsaken but re-intepreted with an avant-guarde and cutting-edge approach for a modern consumer who likes being trendy without having to give up athletic features. Sneakers are an important accessory, including futuristic materials stemming from a thorough research that unites comfort and aesthetics.


Materials are divided into two main streams: Pure-Tech, that comprises modern and technical materials. Opalescent PVCs and PU laminates play a crucial role, along with sporty meshes, that can be combined with tulle, and stretch fabrics, with an extensive use of Lurex.

Decorative features stress a technological elegance: flocked fabrics with pixel patterns, metallic plisse’, reversible sequin fabrics and printed camouflage patterns on glittered surfaces.
