Trends fall<08'09>winter {Peclers Paris view}

> DARK FICTION
A world of depths, a ’Blade Runner’ universe will feed our imagination. We will explore organic, mineral and synthetic materials in imposing shapes, pared-down austerity and controlled roughness. It is a tribute to protective materials and colours.

PeclersParis - Fall/Winter 2008-09

COLOURS
Subtle darks, asphalt greys, oily greens, earthy browns, and pale greenish or pinkish faux whites. A deceptively colourless range that intensifi es mystery.

FABRICS
Austere woollens. Thick felts and rough compact broadcloths in coat weights, suitings and mock plains in cotton/wool.
Patinated cottons. Mock plains, muted stripes, washed or oiled twills and denims.
Shirts and tops. Allover, line, spot, tie dye prints, luxuriant engraved leaves.
Blurred knits. Heavy gauge woolly jerseys, mouliné and bouclé yarns, muted jacquards, textured stitches, folded effects, bark and moss looks. Fine gauge, wool and cashmere jerseys, stonewashed, metallic, printed.
Featherweight techno. Rubbery, waxed coatings, on cotton and knits. Padded nylons.
Fancy organic. Smooth leathers, fi sh and reptile skins. Cracked silky fabrics. Tarnished sequins.

STYLE
Play of contrasts and lengths.
Classics to layer. Overcoats, maxi coats, uniform-inspired overcoats, lined wool parkas, enlarged shapes. To softly mix and mismatch with loose, cropped, above-the-ankle slacks or long fl oor-length skirts.
Maxi knits. Rounded coats, thick jackets, sailor tunics, carapace sweaters, zipped heavy-duty sweaters. To wear over jackets instead of a coat. To layer over boxy pants and skirts.
High protection. Between neo-army and a post industrial look, functional jackets, reinforced dungarees, slim or baggy jeans that are greasy, torn and patched-up in one-of-a-kind style.
Shockproof luxury. Airbag blousons, short tubular jackets in precious tech fabrics. Multilayer design or sheath line, adaptable functionality.

DETAILS
Uniform buckles, metal zips. Multipockets and belt loops. Fabric mixes on the garment. Tilted hems.

ACCESSORIES
Very dark or very light.
To erase details and make products futuristic. Wide bracelets as though cut from the block, thick derby shoes as if moulded. Biker spirit, caps, ankle boots with buckles, satchel bags or harness-style waist packs.
Mineral or vegetable. Rock or fossil style jewellery. Platform reptile-skin sandals. Boiled wool trainers, maxi oversize knitted scarves, thick hand-knitted socks to wear with winter sandals, bags in a patchwork of knit stitches.
