Neon brights were key to the SS19 colour palette. Used as an accent or in bolder all-over forms, fluorescent orange, green and yellow popped against classic neutrals and delicate spring pastels. Vibrant azure blues and watermelon pinks added to the Day-Glo optimism of the show.
Technical properties were seen across both leather and materials categories. Stretch jersey backers introduced a sporty component to lightweight skins and perforated effects mirrored athletic mesh. Metallic nylon filament threads and spongy contrast layers brought a new dimension to mesh fabrics.
Natural materials were elevated for SS19 through the introduction of more refined finishes and experimental techniques. Cork was reimagined with stitched surfaces and lacy laser cuts while linen backers and paper handles updated the previous season’s heavily rustic looks.
