From abstract, global influences to detailed information on fibers and colour tones: this is what a presentation by Lidewij Edelkoort is all about. This season she paints a positive picture. Embryonic is the title of her presentation, and this is about nurturing new ideas and initiatives, and allowing these to grow into new models for our industry.
The budding of new ideas can be seen in material development; there is much attention to detail. Technological developments make materials smart and responsive, while handmade and traditional techniques offer texture and tactility. Lots of attention to raw materials and yarns: effect yarns are expected to make a comeback. Cord, tube and wick yarn is used to knot and tie.
