ISPO unveils new textile trends for Spring/Summer 2019

Mar 29, 2017

ISPO.com, an organiser of sports and fashion tradeshows, has announced the launch of three mega trends of the textile industry for ISPO Textrends Spring/Summer 2019, which includes Moment, Dynamic, and Calm, that may serve as the basic guidelines for the participants and provide a good vision for the future of textiles, with defined trend colours.

The mega trend Moment pursues the consumers’ need for challenge and competition at all levels through experiences. The influence is going to see a push in multi-functional and flexible products feature for the season. From fibres through to finishes, the aim of the textile companies here is to deliver products that are versatile and durable.

Lighter, brighter and more intelligent products will feature, adapting to different environments and delivering top level performance no matter what the target, from leisurely activity to extreme sports. From tents to backpacks, anti mosquito fabrics to UV protection, this mega trend will deliver in all aspects of the textile chain.

With the next trend Dynamic, all sectors of the textile industry can continue to pursue a path of cleaner technology and a higher level of eco know-how with reduced waste, elimination of harmful chemicals, and a push in recycling. Energy and water saving processes also come through in this viable new future.

A whole sweep of clean technology will produce textiles and trims that require less water and energy in the manufacturing process to a big push on recycled yarns, both natural and synthetic.

The next mega trend, Calm, translates through to the materials for the season, delivering the multi-functionality desired to finally achieve that work/life balance. Fabrics will sooth, nourish, and deliver a renewed comfort as well as offer a sensual experience. In turn, the ongoing for wellbeing and health-wear is influential to the collections coming through.

A notable influence that Calm has throughout the textile change will be through the touch. Textile companies need to focus on embracing elements in single and double knit fabrics that have an almost spongey-like touch and creamy finish.

For trims and accessories, softer, lighter, and more malleable products are expected to come through. There is a calming element and soothing aspect that will appeal in apparel, footwear, hard-wear and equipment.
