Reflecting the future of leather fashion in terms of colour, structure, touch and overall appearance, Lanxess’ technicians and designers have elaborated the collection 18 months in advance at the company’s competence centre for upper leather located in Santa Croce Sull’Arno, Tuscany, Italy.

Four major trends have been put forward for the Autumn/Winter 2017-18 season: Autunno Rosa with bright red and pink tones, Transizione Verde, dominated by greens, Paesaggi Invernali with a variety of colour tones, and Scuro de Inverno, with primarily dark tones.

Lanxess aims to enable tanneries to prepare for implementing these trends by also providing valuable and practical application advice. For more information, visit
