This week, FashionUnited readers get an exclusive look at three denim trends from Denim by Premiere Vision that will be impacting into SS19 and beyond. Liquid Luxe brings a new fluidity to previously rugged handles while Modern Geometry updates traditional weaves a fresh, graphic look. Colour Spectrum sees metallic finishes and rainbow hues introduce on-trend colour and surface finish into the denim language.
Liquid and lustrous finishes add fluidity to jeanswear. Material blends incorporate Cupro, Lyocell and Modal fibres into classic cotton fabrications to create denim handles with a drapey quality. Pale, pearlescent coatings add a soft metallic element, mirroring new fabric textures.
Neat, square weaves and 3D diamond effects give denim a geometric appeal, adapting to both clean, modernist looks and distressed, handcrafted finishes. Square embossed or printed labels, contrasting two-tone colour-ways and boxy silhouettes amplify SS19's graphic aesthetic.
Traditional denim gets a fashion-forward update with colourful rainbow hues enhancing surface finishes and detailing. Multicoloured metallics create a psychedelic oil slick effect painted directly onto cotton blend fabrications while contrast primary and pastel threads add a contrasting colour shot to wefts.
