With the help of 33 professionals from the beach fabrics, textiles and trims sectors the Network Dessous has compiled a special report (presented during Mare di Moda last year) on key developments and macro-theme forecasts. This feature first appeared in Linea Intima Italy.
The creativity of swimwear fabric manufacturers enables us to define 4 key trends for summer 2014, which will be presented in a series of posts.
BEACH NATURE: PLANET EARTH AND RICH ECOSYSTEMS
What better than the wealth of nature with its huge resources to dictate the style of 2014? So crowded vegetation, rich plants of the tropical paradise and the luxurious jungle, evoked in an abundance of imposing foliage and majestic flowers and in urban gardens with their perfect flowers and compositions created by man.
Well represented too is the animal world, a bigger expression in the new skins and blazing plumage, revisited with a fresh eye but also in the figurative prints of mammals from faraway lands and coloured butterflies. And another inevitable source of inspiration is the submerged world with its rich chromatic palettes of blues/greens, borrowing from crystalline waters and the deepest oceans with their extraordinary flora and fauna, brightly coloured fish and sea horses set against the South Seas with graceful anemones and precious shellfish and coral. And also of course the grand landscapes of nature – luminous beaches of fine sand and unending burning deserts offer beachwear a palette of hot tones and minerals.
