For AW 22/23, expect to see leather and non-leather footwear and accessories build on the commercial success of minimalist finishes, as well as a focus on natural materials for updates.
1 Natural materials are key: authentic materials will be a major focus this season. From cork to contemporary straw, these materials call out important messages around sustainability.
2 Minimalist surfaces become more sleek: update the minimalist trend with waxy and glossy high-shine finishes. Nylons are sleek and satins are structured for seasonless appeal.
3 Leathers support a ‘less is more’ design approach: extend the lifespan of your products through adaptable designs. Offer quality over quantity and design for the long-term.
4 Make a statement with craft aesthetics: use color and more intricate techniques to exaggerate woven looks for a stronger statement.
5 Apply color to enhance materials: exotic-look skins and upscaled croc materials are infused with color to add newness.
