Tradeshows: Pitti Filati SS18
The overriding theme for Pitti Filati SS18 took you on a journey utilising various modes of travel and forms of escape from the great outdoors to a luxurious boutique experience. Exploring spontaneity and freedom, rebellion and wellbeing, each theme presented a showcase of highly creative and detailed knitted swatches and creations. Here, we take a look at the key yarn trends to take away from the show:
Paper and tape yarns
Paper like and tape yarns were key across neutral shades and subtle indigo tones. The crisp dry texture was essential.
Super dry handles
Super dry handles and finishes were the most popular finish at the show. Synthetics and naturals all took on this dehydrated and baked finish.
Solid and sheer stripes
Solid and sheer stripes were presented across the show. Matte and shine contrasts were key to this look, as were light weights.
Net like stitches were seen across metallic and paper like yarns and cottons with regular or mismatched patterning.
