Embroidery Trend Information Collection Autumn/Winter 2020/2021
All the latest developments around us do have an impact on trims and textile decorations. Of course we’ll take a look also to the latest trends in embroidery and effect seams:
Another season of contrasts is about to come: The radical changes in politics and society are also influencing the textile and garment sector. Digitization is one of the key words and we are constantly surprised by new developments in smart technologies. On the other hand, many consumers are re-thinking their values, they are more informed and more critical which can be seen also in sales figures. Nowadays, High-Tech materials are affordable for everybody and are fascinating people no matter with gender or generation. At the same time, natural materials are having their come-back and sustainable companies and products are booming.
Society’s diremption is also pictured in the colour palette for the winter 20/21 season; there are loud, bright and intensive colours on one side as well as subtle, natural and earthy tones on the other. Same same with the fabrics: transparent, coated and high-gloss finished materials share the market with matt and structured fabrics made of natural fibres and threads.

Transparency will remain a strong topic; besides clear materials, milky and semi-transparent foils are becoming more important, as shown on the following pictures.
On the left side, a feathery grayish rose tone (Poly Star) was embroidered on a milky foil by Sam Fashion Group Italy. The picture on the right shows trendy multicolour shades of Sulky viscose on a semi-transparent foil by Frizza Italy:
The next photos show classical checks - this time not woven but embroidered using effect threads. Embroidery can make every plain fabric unique and special. Another advantage: the pattern can be placed just where it is needed, for example on the collar, shirt pocket or cuff.
Many fashion brands are following the trend of individualizing and personalizing their collections. To do so, high quality luxury hand embroideries can be the perfect solution. The company Rumi Embroideries India, for example, is using Gunold’s industrial embroidery threads for their noble hand crafted designs.
Looking for volume and embossed effects on a fabric or garment, the use of effect seams can be very useful. To achieve the perfect look, use an embroidery or effect thread instead of a standard sewing thread, as shown in following pictures:
There is still the trend to play with three dimensional effects and thread loops and frays to achieve new optical and haptic experiences:
Reflective elements are getting stronger and stronger, especially in the darker periods of the year. Besides the standard reflective logo, there are so many creative ways to combine function and contemporary design:
You’ll find much more inspiration for the new season on Gunold’s booth at the Munich Fabric Start (hall 1 – A09) or Premiere Vision Paris (hall 4 – B19) shows. Use the occasion to exchange with us and to get ideas how to use all these contrasts for your own individual collection !
Have fun and see you soon, best wishes, Reiner
