The last edition of Denim by PV had had a great run in Paris. There was a lot of innovation in the denim previews for spring /summer 2015. The show presented a general return to vintage inspiration and a come-back of authenticity most often presented through a selection of dusty and sun-bleached blues and visible blue-white contrasts. Most impressive was the offer of special surface effects – obtained through laser geometric micro and macro designs and tattoo-effect patterns either obtained through contrasting colour patch applications, or printed or woven jacquard effects.
Deep blue, electric blue, dark black and a selection of greys are the must have colours, according to most companies. One company focused on deep black denim that doesn’t fade, as well on a selection of deep blues – in both cases they employ a coloured warp and weft for deep and long lasting denim shades. A variety of blues – from light blue to electric and oil blue-- is a real must.
A wide selection of accessories was also on show. Among the various specialists participating in the show was Labeltex, which launched a new selection of buttons and rivets for jeans that can be covered with most different leather types and that can also be aged, coloured and personalized with logos according to each brand’s own spirit or specific capsule collection.
