Autumn/winter 16 fabric trends

Touch and feel texture

This season, it's all about tactile allure. A sensual exploration: jacquards, soft touch velour, ribbed stripes or thick broadcloth. Tartan also takes its place as a timeless fabric for all ages. With plush fabrics available across all collections, prints and patterns project a voluminous allure when silhouettes are minimally crafted. Decorated with metallic inlays, patchwork appliqués and reinforced visuals, high season double-lined cotton continues its influence into next season with tops, bottoms for girls and baby clothes.



Keep it cosy this autumn with soft velours, plush leathers and thick woollen warmers. Pay special attention to jersey and cotton sweatshirt fabrics for instant comfort. Looking to knitwear, peach-feel fuzzy surfaces with stretchy elastane and cotton blends are an added extra.
