Denim Première Vision Denim Première Vision hosted their Spring/Summer 2019 show at the Paris Event Centre. It ran from the 13th-14th October. The focus was on creating an Eco-responsible future. This is keeping in line with the previous season’s refresh with a focus on consumer lifestyle issues. Many exhibitors looked with a specific focus towards reducing water use in production. They also looked to recycle plastics to create denim materials and products. Aside from the previously mentioned eco-focus, the show also celebrated new aesthetic trends. You could find these in the central hub of the Trend area. This season the space was reformatted from the previous concept of immersion and digital living. This let it become a clean segmented, two tiered space. Each of the 10 trends had their own designed area to reflect the themes detailed. The individual trend capsules explored everything. These deranged from materials and shapes, to colour and surfaces. The concept of scannable QR codes were brought back from the previous season. These allowed visitors to download specific information with photographs of the products. Read on for our guide to the trends from Denim PV Spring/Summer 2019.
