Specialty chemicals company LANXESS, a world-leading manufacturer of leather chemicals, is unveiling leather trends for the upcoming 2017/18 season. The articles it is presenting reflect the future of leather fashions in terms of color, structure, haptics and overall appearance.
At the companyâ€™s own competence center for upper leather in Santa Croce sullâ€™Arno, Tuscany, Italy, LANXESS technicians and designers are busy creating future fashion collections 18 months in advance. After an inspiration phase, they choose the colors that are to characterize the leather collection. In the next step, the LANXESS experts develop the corresponding leather articles and recipes, and then present them to customers individually. This approach enables tanneries to prepare for implementing these trends. They also are provided with valuable, practical application tips.
The major trends for the Fall/Winter season 2017/2018 are:Â Autunno RosaÂ with bright red and pink tones,Â Transizione Verde, dominated by the color green,Â Paesaggi InvernaliÂ with a variety of color tones, andÂ Scuro de Inverno, with primarily dark tones.
