Proposte 2015: Editor’s picks

Two things are most prominent at Italian textiles trade fair Proposte this year: velvet and innovative exhibition spaces. J.A. Raymakers stood out in both categories. The brand showcased a stunning range of plain, jacquard, brushed and printed velvets for curtains and upholstery. The exhibition space was split into colour sections, with red to oranges, cobalt and turquoise and a new combination of deep purple with lime, co-ordinated with upholstered stools and over dyed silk rugs.

With such a large amount of colour and pattern across the fair, it was a breath of fresh air to visit Lodetex’s stand. For the company’s latest collection, the design team have take inspiration from organic and natural textures, which are translated into delicate polyester, cotton and linen jacquard and dobby sheers in shades of crisp white and ecru.

Torri Lana’s exhibition space pays homage to sartorial craftsmanship and contemporary design. The modern collection updates archived designs to inspire the fabrics of today. Worsted and smooth wools, tweeds and a range of micro geo jacquards celebrate tailoring and design coming together.

Our full trend report from Proposte 2015 will be live next week for WGSN Lifestyle & Interiors subscribers.
