LANXESS: Latest Leather Fashion Trends for Spring-Summer Season 2017

  • Orientation for leather manufacturers
  • Recipes and advice on processing

Cologne - LANXESS’ Leather business unit is now offering a sneak preview of the upcoming leather trends for the spring-summer season 2017. The specialty chemicals company presents various leather designs which – in terms of look, feel and overall impression – look ahead to the future leather fashion. These are a valuable guidance for designers and leather manufacturers which help to implement any new trend early. Furthermore, tanneries receive relevant formulations and practical advice on processing. LANXESS is one of the leading manufacturers of leather chemicals worldwide.

The four trend topics that have been announced for spring-summer season 2017 are:

Mondo Pop

Fashion is a game, living the changes of values established by society, living the outside world in continuous movement. Modern man is open to all forms of communication, with everything becoming more and more international and styles based on a contemporary fashion that is increasingly influenced by social media, celebrity, and street style. Everything is continually reworked, assembled in a single moment from one garment to the next all over the world.
The trend colors remind of berry milkshakes – from Prism Pink and Violet Quartz in combination with Lavender and Golden Brown.

Memoria Artistica

What remains of the past are traces of the individual and collective historic memory. Reinterpretation of heritage, the world in constant change in which memory and the values connected to it form the basis of a shared social construction of feeling and living together, of which vintage is an integral part, a contemporary mark and instrument of dialogue through which young people draw upon the past in a dynamic and creative way.
The colors are borrowed from nature – Fossil, Graystone and Silver Metallic.

Tecnologia Naturale

While the future of sportswear as a template for life continues its sharp ascent, the priority is to achieve innovation in materials, ensuring both production and presentation based on ethics, awareness and respect for the environment. Customization and personality are features of this way of living.
In this trend Grey Shades of Color predominate while matching with Snow White and a luscious Monk Robe Brown.

Moda Radicale

We are captivated by the balance between past and future, between tradition and modernity. Artisanship is now couture, new forms with classic materials giving relevance to a modern world. Metamodernism describes a contemporary vision which draws together the old and the new. The interweaving of multiracial coutures creates new codes and new lifestyles which pervade fashion. Look at genders which, in how they transgress cultural codes based on particular clothing, show the uniqueness of the individual and create new ways of interpreting fashion.
This trend fools about with Earthy Shades of Color combined with Maritim Blue and Creamy White.

The Leather business unit is part of LANXESS’ Performance Chemicals segment, which achieved total sales of EUR 2.2 billion in fiscal 2014.
