BASF Trends unveil an intense season, luxurious and easy-going at the same time

BASF presents “Piemonte Collection”, the latest Autumn/Winter 2015-2016 trends and inspirations for premium leather. This season’s collection encompasses a rich range of colours and textures, leaving more minimalistic winters behind. Leather textures with waves and fading effects express emotions that melt away into a restrained but easy-going look. The “Piemonte Collection” divides and synthesises this new season into three main trends: Opulence, Adventure and Fundamental.

Opulence presents the season’s most Baroque colours and textures, inspired by the rich and sumptuous prints of the maharajas, in a lavish treasure seeking voyage palatial touches. It’s all accompanied by oriental decoration but taken to a more casual level through brocades and purple, pink and fuchsia prints. Riveted leather and gold metal touches accompany the black that is ubiquitous during this season.

A different trend is presented in Adventure; textures that merge, bluish tones and an element of Nature, evoking forests with infinite palettes of green: khakis, blue-greens, lime greens and petrol green that are given nuances to create the effect of depth. Interplays and nuances of colour, dark tones with lighter embossed effects. Mother Nature is seen at her most refined with hues of rusted shine, mineral textures and curved, uneven shapes.

To complete the collection of new trends for this season, Fundamental takes us into an bourgeois, refined ambiance. A re-worked definition of refinement with soft graphics, caramel tones, browned leather and orange hues. Shiny patent textures and a kind of blurred, linear geometry. Recollections of traditional tailoring and high quality items evoke avant-garde techniques and luxurious exclusivity.

Autumn/Winter 2015-2016 is clad in an enchanting sobriety, with metal and patent details that present an energetic look highlighting a redefined Baroque style, encouraging us to discover every shade of colour that nature has given us.

To achieve the desired results in this season’s inspiration, BASF recommends their new range of Basyntan® and Relugan® products, which combine ecology and performance in retanning, along with their new generation of Densodrin® water-repellent agents, to reach the highest standards required. To complete the process, apply BASF’s innovative finishing polyurethanes found in the new Astacin® range to make the premium leather collection a successful one!
