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.
