    ‘Connected’ has been decided as the seasonal theme for apparel fabrics trends for Spring/Summer 2023 at Intertextile Shanghai Apparel Fabrics – Spring Edition 2022, slated to be held in Shanghai, China from April 14 – 16, 2022. The four key trends that will represent this theme are Bio-Clarity, Natural-Harmony, Virtual-Energy and Earth-Celebration.

    “In a seemingly hyper-connected world, there has grown a widespread craving for intimacy and closeness. We seek authenticity in every aspect of life and look within, around and beyond ourselves, leading to the emphasis of performance and synthetic fabrics, and comfort and eco-friendly fabrics. The fair’s Trend Forum will feature on-trend fabric samples submitted by exhibitors to provide inspiration for visitors on colours, patterns, materials and more,” the show’s organisers said in a media release.

    The Intertextile Directions Trend Committee came up with the seasonal theme ‘Connected’ to tell the story of tomorrow’s apparel fabric trends. It is formed by top trend forecasters from fashion capitals around the world: TOBE TDG By The Doneger Group (New York, USA), Elementi Moda (Milan, Italy), NellyRodi Agency (Paris, France) and Sachiko Inoue (Tokyo, Japan).

The four key trends that will represent this theme are Bio-Clarity, Natural-Harmony, Virtual-Energy and Earth-Celebration.

    Bio-Clarity

    Austere and luminous pastels blend with romantic floral tones, forming a serene range of shades that inspire sensitivity and simplicity. Delicate fabrics shine in sheer chiffons and organzas, while simplistic and synthetic fabrics take a technical route with Tencel and Cupro rayons, triacetates, vero viscose and performance polyesters.

    Natural-Harmony

    Fruity and floral pops add vibrance as botanical, natural neutrals stabilise this balanced palette. Eco-friendly fabrics are key in organic cotton, linen and hemp. Natural pigment dyes, eco washes and biodegradable denims make a statement.

    Virtual-Energy

    Illusionary worlds, digital dynamism and outer-space wonder collide in a gamut of shimmering crypto-tones and explosive artificial brights. New-age futurism pushes the limit with bio synthetics, smart textiles and wearable technology. Waterproof, cooling, anti-UV and antibacterial coatings are now standard.

    Earth-Celebration

    A rich array of organic tones extracted from exotic vegetation and tropical flowers form a complex range of zesty bursts and mellow darks. Rustic refinement is at the forefront with a myriad of natural fibres including marled and mélange linens and hemps. Botanical dyes, Shibori and pigment prints feel organic and sustainable.

    Intertextile Shanghai Apparel Fabrics – Spring Edition 2022 will be held concurrently with the Spring Edition of Intertextile Shanghai Home Textiles, Yarn Expo Spring, CHIC and PH Value from April 14-16 at the National Exhibition and Convention Center (Shanghai). The fair is co-organised by Messe Frankfurt (HK) Ltd; the Sub-Council of Textile Industry, CCPIT; and the China Textile Information Centre.
