Embroidery Trends Spring/Summer 2020

The collection spring/summer 2020 will offer a lot of contrasts. There are very colourful and bright colours on one side, natural and subtle tones on the other side:

Cut-outs as well as distorted and decomposed looks are very trendy. Transparent materials are layered and applied. Embroidery structures may be irregular and imperfect:

Honeycomb structures will be used quite often – and of course these can also be embroidered, in this case on a watersoluble Gunold material called “Solvy Fabric”:

Bringing raised elements and effectful 3D looks to a garment is key. Playing with stitch directions adds dimension and depth:

Even in a summer collection, there will be used a lot of black and silver elements, sometimes flashed with bright colours, yet some neon effects like a bright pink or a faded green. Attractive and exceptional effect threads are perfect to express the season’s message:

Playing with plastic elements and fabrics, iridescent colours and bright, glittery materials as well as threads –  a nice reminiscence of the 80s and 90s feelings:

Simple geometric shapes are used both in prints and embroideries. Using attractive embroidery stitch types and techniques helps to reduce stitches, offering attractive surface design at the same time:
