Especially for the denim business, View proposes an additional possibility to present new developments in the continuous process of new inventions. Denim weavers like ITV-Denim, Tavex, Bossa Denim, Italdenim, Pordenone-Olimpias and Tejidos Royo were present.
About 300 selected collections were presented, twice as many as at the previous event. The number of visitors increased 83 per cent with design teams from brands like Hugo Boss, Talbot Runhof, Marc O’Polo and Laurèl visiting the event. In trends, the tendencies in the premium segment were still about richness like fury haptic, strong 3-D-structures, jacquards and metallic looks. In the denim segment, softness of denim got even more comfortable, and new authentic leather or snake finishes gave denim an unknown new face. Also the trend to include aesthetics and fabrics from active wear into fashion was represented in numerous stretch fabrics.
Knitwear also remained important for trousers and jackets, with inspiration coming again from athletic wear.
