SS17 Spring Summer 17 Charles Parsons Fashion Fabrics

 

The 2017 Spring / Summer season sees four key trends built around the concept of global exploration and connection. A new world view and aesthetic that challenges our notion of traditional cultural boundaries - inspiring a contemporary global perspective.

 

 

Encounter Culture celebrates the eclectic infusion of the tropics, blending unique customs and crafts with bold summer brightness. Borderlands aspires to a view beyond the city walls - an outward perspective that leaves the concrete jungle behind and envelops you in aged, earthy tones and handmade textures, celebrating a raw bohemian sensibility. Silent Future challenges us to experience a new take on luxury. Thoughtful, considered and minimal - striking an elegant balance between the sensual and the technical. New Wave channels the fearless spirit of the 1980’s new wave - bold, sharp and forward thinking. A high octane blast of neon colour and dazzling geometric shapes.

 

Encounter Culture - an eclectic, feel good, bright, high summer trend inspired by unique customs and crafts.

Encounter Culture celebrates discovery through adventurous travel and global connectivity of new tropical destinations and cultures, particularly those of the Caribbean island of Cuba which is now opening up to American tourism for the first time in over 50 years. This is an eclectic, feel good, bright, high summer trend inspired by unique customs and crafts, lush landscapes, undiscovered beaches and warm tropical seas.

 

Borderlands - A new raw Bohemian trend wrapped in aged earthy tones

Borderlands is inspired by the creativity flourishing in the grassy spaces between big cities and the countryside, in particular the resourceful renaissance taking place in the Eastern bloc. A new raw Bohemian trend wrapped in aged earthy tones and homemade textures with a touch of nostalgia for pastoral home life, vintage styles and Eastern European folklore.

Silent Future - A balance of the sensual and the technical, Silent Future is a thoughtful introspective trend


A new take on luxury, Silent Future is a minimalist trend in which technology is used discretely to create a relaxed, luxurious breathing space. A balance of the sensual and the technical, Silent Future is a thoughtful introspective trend with gentle colours, shapes and textures.

 

New Wave - The look is sporty, glamorous and fresh with an eighties nostalgic edge.

New Wave plugs into the dynamic spirit of the 1980’s with a focus on high-octane colours, sharp tailoring and powerful post-internet art movement graphics. The look is sporty, glamorous and fresh with an eighties nostalgic edge.
