With the social economic development and rising feminine influence, women are having a stronger desire for high-quality clothes. Thus, the crafts with delicate keynote become more exquisite. The application of handcrafted lockstitch, edging, black-white stitch, laser hollow-out and placement pockets on clothes designs can rebuild the classics and demonstrate the elegance of new women.
The application of woven stripes can strengthen the edges. The weaving on edgings ,zipper edges and bright red colors reveals a splicing and contrast effect, which is used on various tonal fabrics. The heterogeneous designs provide a visual beauty, the mono-colored edging craft of Miu Miu increases the layers and presents a delicate but low-key decorative effect.
With the popularity of designs which pay attention to the delicate handcrafted feeling, decorative stitch has become a new choice of detailed craft. The contrast-colored thread is common but filled with details. The strong contrast between clear stitch and leather underlines the delicate craftsmanship and endows leather items with a special visual division effect.
The cut-out edge design is a new emerging form which combines handicraft and modern techniques to present details with better 3D and fun effects. And the injection of patterns also enriches the clothes.
Under the influence of restraint, consumers are paying attention to practical and multi-occasion clothing. The super practical sweatshirt which can be worn in all four seasons has an outstanding impact to the market. Combination of slant opening, rubber waterproof zippers and delicate woven labels brings an entry luxury visual effect to the minimalist style. Besides, functional design details are also noteworthy. Weatherproof hoodie and high-neck design provide protection to urban runners. Improving the function and chic of sport sweatshirts is what we should consider. And this report analyzes the detail trend for 2022 early autumn sport sweatshirts.
Since slant opening has been a common design, the design of this season is applied on the high-neck silhouette to improve texture and chic. Rubber waterproof zippers which have letter patterns show hazy matte and delicate entry luxury sense through the textured contrast and shading changes.
The outdoor protective design is integrated into fashionable sport sweatshirts. Hat and neck can apply weatherproof functional fabrics splicing to protect urban runners. The moisture absorption and air-permeability of fabric is also important.
Pullover protective high-neck sweatshirt wraps the neck comfortably and provides thermal effect. The sewing between high-neck and neckline should be delicate, and even seamless sewing can be applied. Details like shirring can be used on neckline to increase thermal and stylish texture.
Breaking, renunciation, and separation seem to have once again been integrated into part of today’s life. After experiencing various turbulent situations, facing the still unstable future, people are constantly making choices to clarify the most precious and important things to them.
“The complex to the simple” in fashion industry is a response to this consumer behavior trends. Among them, cheap fast fashion brands in particular should be aware of the changes, otherwise, they are very likely to become the first batch of stragglers and be eliminated out of the market. Uniqlo and H&M are the first brands to take action.
After nearly a decade, minimalist fashion designer Jil Sander once again cooperates with Uniqlo to launch the +J series in this fall. It is revealed by the Officials that this cooperation will continue the low-key and simple style, and focus on high-end uniform design. In 2009, the two reached their first cooperation, and then ended the cooperation in 2011. In the FW 2014 and SS 2015, Uniqlo re-enacted the classic items in the +J series, which receive a positive response from the market.
During its selection on new partners, H&M also made a similar choice. Its collaboration series with Italian fashion brand Giuliva Heritage will be officially launched on September 3rd. The latter was founded by Margherita Cardelli and Gerardo Cavaliere in 2017. It is known for its traditional hand-cut formal wear and classic design aesthetics. As part of the H&M Conscious series, its related cooperative products will be manufactured with recyclable materials and recycled fibers.
H&M and Giuliva Heritage’s collaboration series design
Fast fashion brands used to have been favored by young consumer groups with relatively low purchasing ability as affordable replacements to catwalks styles. These consumers often want to keep in line with the ever-changing trends at lower prices, and put the requirements for product quality in the second place. Fast-fashion brands based on this audience usually tend to team up with trendy brands or hot IPs, pursuing the HIT effect, and the frequency of product series update is also high.
Now, everything is rewritten. When people is experiencing economy depression and looking around at a loss, the “lipstick effect” is also hardly working. More people starts to pursue durable every day wear. Although price is still important, they are no longer willing to exchange low prices for the easily outdated “trend”. “In my opinion, matching items have become an important part of current fashion,” said Yumi Shin, chief buyer of department store Bergdorf Goodman, “and jackets and blazers are coming back.”
This is why Uniqlo chose to restart the cooperation with Jil Sander at this moment. A series of measures such as social distancing, working from home and employment layback have made the usual business workplaces rare and special. After increasing investment in sportswear and homewear, people don’t have much room for work clothes in the closet. They need more high-quality, classic-designed and affordable suits and uniforms.
Giuliva Heritage, which was established later and is relatively less well-known, has clearly respected the traditional Italian tailoring craftsmanship from the beginning. Therefore, the two founders were first surprised when they received the invitation to cooperate with H&M. “We are the opposite of the fast fashion industry,” Cardelli told the British version of Vogue. “But in the final analysis, we are still working towards the same goal.”
The price of Giuliva Heritage’s products is not cheap, a dress is priced at 1,500 euros, and the price of a windbreaker jacket is close to 3,000 euros. However, the brand provides consumers with a “lifetime warranty” service, no matter how long it is bought, people can repair clothing in the brand’s studio in Rome. When designing the collaborative series for H&M, the couple always used recycled materials and fibers to achieve their commitment to sustainable development.
As the severe epidemic in March this year, the global economic recession approaches, the fashion industry is experiencing a minimalist recovery, and consumers are increasingly concerned about sustainable development issues. “Open the Future”-the core concept proposed by Jil Sander and Uniqlo for the first time after the financial crisis in 2008 is also applicable today.
The fashion show is focused on two themes, “Autumn and Winter Collections” and “Leisure Fashion Collections”, which create the collision between fashion trends and sportswear and cargo trends. The show demonstrates the determination of “IBL YEUNG” to pursue diversified and unique artistic styles. At the same time, Catherine Yeung is also a very thoughtful designer. That’s why her designs look amazing. Black and white are more fashionable, with a tribute to cargo trend, blending with modern fashion and traditional British style, attracting people from different fashion fields.

More importantly, Catherine Yeung pays more attention to the connotation of human nature, hoping to tell everyone through her design, “how to be the truest self”, while there is nothing wrong to show the fragility of oneself . With “IBL YEUNG” clothing fabrics, whether skirts that have large area of bright and pure color or suits that blend capable and colorful contradictions, the works show a blend of modern fashion sense and traditional British style. Also the designers combine retro and modern, gorgeous and practical, and fully indicate the intelligibility of fashion!

The British girl, Iris Grace Halmshaw, was diagnosed with autism at the age of three. She couldn’t talk at that time, and avoided eye contact with people. She was extremely sensitive and afraid of the outside world. After trying a lot of treatments, her parents found that as long as Iris picked up the brush, she calmed down and devoted herself to the creation. Children’s painting is like angel’s handwriting, full of innocence, romance and softness. The dribs and drabs and color blocks explain the simple but wonderful inner world of children.
The understanding of color for children is simple, and they pay little attention to the rich and layered grey tones in life. In their eyes, red is just red; green is just green; blue is just blue. They never classify red into cold red and warm red, and they exaggerate the color. For example, they use pure lake blue to describe the blue ocean, and use jester red or bittersweet to express the sun. They will not color the cockscomb with green. Thus they tend to use color-blocking and original colors with high purity to brighten the picture, creating a rough, sprightly, plain and passionate style. The innocent, childish and rhythmic color is unified with its look.
Due to physiological characteristics and knowledge limitations, kids tend to draw objects out of proportion. Animals drawn by kids have big heads and big eyes. Because kids tend to pay attention to the head and eyes. When a mother leans over to hold the baby, the baby is always staring into her eyes. Kids cannot have a good command of their strength to draw the object, but they are trying to, thus some lines with unique fun are created. Printing, embroidery or the 3D dolls can be adopted to interpret these funny and lively patterns.
