Hot Fabric Trends 2010: Soft Furry Winter and Plush Spring

Saturday, 13 February 2010

hot fabric trends 2010This year will be remembered for an incredible diversity of fabrics in vogue: fluffy and knit fabrics, leather, silk and satin. Most renowned fashion designers used these fabrics to create their extraordinary collections to awe the audience around the world.

Obviously, in 2010 fashion will be wearing lightweight feathery fabrics, and therefore no wonder that fur tops the fashion charts. In our mind, its luxurious texture and noble origin are closely connected to dolce vita and success in life. Designers' choice of colors for their natural and faux fur pieces is not limited to classic black, grey or brown, there are also bright colors: green, red and purple. Trendy jackets and coats are patchwork-colored and striped. Outerwear looks warm and cozy, as if inviting to flaunt it in the cold winter days. Pieces like this are found in Michael Kors, Alberta Ferretti, Guess, Bebe, Juicy Couture, Lanvin, Nina Ricci, Givenchy, and Jean Paul Gaultier collections.

One of the things that set many designer clothing ranges apart from cheaper alternatives is quality fabric. Pucci dresses and separates are usually made from silk, Burberry knitwear is made from cashmere and numerous designers are currently using a wide range of eco friendly fabrics.

Fabrics with soft fluffy nap are also popular with the fair sex in the coming season. Coats and tunics, capes and dresses not only radiate luxury, but also show an incredible lightness and airiness (Salvatore Ferragamo). These fluffy pieces look striking in silver, powder blue and other cold tones. Shrouded in the warm and fluffy clothing, you may defy cold weather.

In 2010, soft and delicate textiles will be rediscovered. For a great number of skirts and pants, jackets and dresses designers used nice-to-touch fabrics like velvets and velours, plush and suede, the preference in color given to black and burgundy, ivory and taupe, as seen in Fendi, Ralph Lauren, Versace and Bottega Veneta collections. These fabrics make even the most empowered businesswomen look feminine and sweet.

Those who are good at knitwork will be surprised and delighted to find out that in 2010 knitwear is as hot as ever, with its rough texture, volume and variety of ornamental patterns. The transition of knitwear from streets to catwalk is overwhelming, as knitted dresses and blouses, sweaters and coats, hats and scarves appear in Missoni, Rodarte, Chanel, Malandrino, and Salvatore Ferragamo collections, among others. For knitwear, warm earthy tones were selected with occasional bright (like fuchsia) spots. Knitwear is great in many ways: it helps you to feel warm and comfortable while showcasing your body and style.  

Cashmere is another trendy fabric for 2010, especially gray-brown and blue cashmere pieces. Cashmere is the lightest and softest wool on the market so it makes for garments which feel luxurious against the skin. Simple clean cut makes you look calm and dignified and sets the limits for other people. Cashmere outfits are warm but lightweight and elegant (Prada).

Leather is still holding its position as one of the best materials for informal wear. Sexy dresses and skirts of patent black and chocolate brown leather were the highlights of Yves Saint Laurent collection, while Bottega Veneta and Balmain preferred classic leather jacket and coats. However, natural materials are favored not only by designers but by fashionistas as well. 

Metallized fabrics are also popular in 2010, especially when used in combination with dark tones (Gucci, Balmain) or rich gold and brick hues. These outfits radiate coolness and dark mysterious attraction, which is hard to resist.

In 2010, silk and satin gowns will take the center stage. Silk has a beautiful sheen, is breathable, hypoallergenic and strong. It is a good insulator, helping keep the wearer cool in summer and warm in winter and it drapes beautifully on the body. With a stunning variety of silk styles and colors (blue, violet, blue, deep red, gold), everyone is sure to find a garment to their taste (Jean Paul Gaultier, Bottega Veneta).

If you are fashion-conscious and try to keep the pace with the current trends, you should pay attention to the fabric and texture of the clothes you choose. And if you are considering a designer clothing purchase, make sure it is made from a good quality fabric. This will ensure that you get all the benefits you pay for. Outlaying a good deal of money just to wear a brand isn't sensible, but investing in quality garments is.
