Traces of the future by Lanxess: the chemical giant of Cologne has unveiled the Leather trends for the upcoming AW 2017/18 season.

The first selection of articles presented focuses on the fashion aspect of the compartment, in terms of colour, structure, texture and overall appearance. Themes in which Italy is second to none, so much so that the German management has engaged the Italian division in Santa Croce sull’Arno to develop the new lines. Here, technicians and designers have been busy designing and creating the future collections 18 months in advance. An initial study phase led to choosing the range of colours typifying the new productions.

The Lanxess team then developed the corresponding leather articles and presented them to customers, sometimes in a personal and individual way. This targeted and intelligent approach allows tanneries to have enough time to implement these new trends. Consequently, the technical staff of Lanxess is able to offer useful and practical application tips.

The new catalogue – a very Italian taste, starting with the actual names of the lines – is characterised by a strong observation of the seasons: “Autunno Rosa” (Autumn rose) with bright red tones typical of autumn; “Transizione Verde” (Green Transition) is dominated by the colour green; “Paesaggi invernali” (Winter Landscapes) offers a variety of brown shades (from beige to ochre, including kaki and pale yellow); while “Scuro d’Inverno” (Winter Darkness) favours dark tones.
