Last April I published the article below about the renewing use of colour which is recently seen in the world of both product design and textile design. I mentioned how interesting this theme would be for fashion on behalf of innovations in weaving, knitting, colouring, coating and other finishing processes.
And how nice to discover that lately different fashion designers started to experiment with colour in new ways.
Last week Tess van Zalinge – a young Dutch designer whom designs both the high end label Tess van Zalinge and the more accessible body wear brand Lola + Lou – presented a beautiful use of colour during Amsterdam Fashion Week. Her Fall/Winter 2016/2017 collection is based on the book ‘Moet Kunnen’ by Herman Pleij with references to the Dutch identity, like landscapes.
Stella McCartney played with almost liquid colours processed in pleated knits for Spring/Summer 2016 and Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli used innovative local tie-dye treatments for their Pre-fall 2016 Valentino collection.
