The colour trends are divided into “Wearing” and “Living”, devoting a section to each within the publication. Wearing comprises inspirations and colour trends for garments, footwear and accessories. The “Living” section features all colours that will decorate the season’s interior designs.
In “Living” bovine leathers, with new metallic and slightly vintage effects, are keeping their leading position in the upholstery field, but also New Zealand vegetable tanned lambskins are used thanks to their natural grain. Referring to the colours, white leathers need to have high lightfastness and a full touch. The colours range from beige, red brown, orange, violet to grey and green.
In “Wearing” embossed calfskin and bovine leathers are reappearing also in the shoe upper field with a more simple and transparent finishing. The graphic style of the ‘50’s will be mixed with the “kitsch” typical of the ’80’s by combining exaggerated accessories with clean and hand-crafted raw materials. The colours vary from intense violet, red, orange and brown to blue and green.
TFL also demonstrate how to achieve a deep black on chrome-free leather at lower cost by using Sella Fast Black WB in combination with Sella FIN Black PN.
