Denim-Trends discovered at Denim by PV

Denim by PV closed its doors yesterday after two busy days. This was the last edition to be held in Paris. The show brought together the latest trends in fabrics and denim. Read here the seven key stories compiled by Stylesight.

Neo Destroyed: reinventing destroyed, patched and repaired surfaces, taking inspiration from the traditional techniques such as darning and giving it to the next generation. Of particular interest is Isko's amazing new 'Scratch & Jean' line (which is destined to be as influential as their jog jean and will be released exclusively by Diesel later this year).

Eastern Artisan: A trend Stylesight have been tracking for over a year now really hit big at this season's Denim by PV. Shibori indigo techniques, traditional Edo-period artisanal processes and a hand crafted approach to indigo dying.

Chalky Pastels: taking summer colours into 2015, pastels were renewed with a range of matt, dusty and soft finishes: degraded and bleached out, whitened and laundered. Coatings remained strong with malleable matt finishes looking fresh for summer and the coloured weft with white warp continued on from S/S14.

Purist Noir: A really nice story for purist, menswear markets. Selvedge and narrow-loom fabrics and heavier weight, rugged twills were re-worked in saturated, deepest black. Workwear constructions such as durable canvases and 3x1 constructions were key and a dry, crispy handfeel made this a neo-masculine story.

Jacquards: A strong trend that we've seen emerging in the market for about 3-4 seasons now. Many mills are now experimenting with technical, 3D weaves, large-scale designs, and strong, visual textures. For many mills, jacquards are the new prints and new ideas push the machines to the limit and beyond.

Menswear: Texture is continuing to be a very strong story across all markets; particularly a return to archival classic menswear weaves. Oxfords, 2x2's and sartorial takes on plain weaves emerged at many stands. Bold, visual textures took on a smartened, premium quality with graphic colour combinations. And American sportswear was given a polished identity.

Azure Indigo: Synthetic indigos get brighter and cleaner for S/S15: a variety of overdyes, yarn-dyes, sprayed finishes and coloured resin coatings were utilized to create a palette of super-bright and royal blues. A key unisex shade for the season, indigo transcends casualwear and enters the fashion arena.
