Last month I was in Paris at the Premiere Vision show. It is a huge fabric and leather trade fair where the newest innovations can be spotted and main trends predicted. I would like to share some tips and trend forecasting in leather for accessories, of what I saw.
Leather these days is about texture and feel, not so much just the look.
For Autumn/Winter 2016/17 a lot of hairy ponyskin(calf) leather could be seen on offer, in a multitude of colours and textures – some even laser cut.
Riina O have used hairy ponyskin with lasercut elements in our latest Autumn/Winter collection – be it the soft side details and furry buttons of Victoria gloves or all over lasercut Miroslava gloves.
Another curious textured type of leather on the show, presented by quite a few innovative tanneries, were the dazzling sequence- and bead-embroidered skins.
As Riina O newest Spring/Summer collection is yet to be revealed, I can only share under secrecy that this is something we are working with at the moment. Coming soon…
Every year I am amazed how much leather innovations have developed since last season, sometimes in rather unexpected ways. But hush now, can´t say more at the moment – some of these innovations might just appear in our next collections!
