In this season, jackets move forward with youthful, simple, clean and cosy qualities. Contrasting colors, piecing, geos and letters are key elements. Colors and techniques are combined with currently popular elements. The neat silhouette of jackets is kept.
Functional sport pockets are applied to the chest and left arm. Contrasting waterproof zippers add appeal.
The contrast piecing of different materials is often seen at the hood, closure and hem. Smooth wovens and matte knitwear make a contrast, emphasizing the outline and creating a dissecting effect.
The mixing of knits and puffa is common. In this season, cuts and dissecting are more dressy. Color, stitch and yarns are key.
Heavy-gauge geometric textures are key. Square textures work well with jackets, and kwise and purl stitches make a contrast. Transitional stitches are used. Solid all-over textures play a key part, and melange yarns make textures stand out.
Jackets with refined plain surfaces work well in transitional periods. Wool yarns are mainly used. Silhouettes and textures are underlined. Striped textures and pointelle are combined, as seen at Reiss. Regular stitch is applied to the neckline, hem and cuff to keep the crisp silhouette and add depth. Concealed zippers feel delicate.
Plain colors are chosen for all-over letters. Stripe-like effects are applied with asymmetric details. Different sizes and colors add newness.
Portraits and figures make a comeback this season. Letters are teamed up with portraits and figures. Prints are often seen at the back. Print can be paired with jacquard and embroidery.
