Collection Autumn-Winter 2022/2023 – Embroidery Trends

Finally we can see and feel real fabric and accessory collections. Digitization is great and it helps in so many areas but it can never replace the real haptic and personal experience. No wonder are the creatives in all over the world longing for the first face-to-face events to discover the collections and trend inspiration for the autumn/winter 2022/2023 season. Meeting people, a personal exchange, maybe even a hug – if there is one thing we have learned over the last months, it is how important emotions are, especially in our extremely creative business. Many things have bottled-up which explode now in opuclence and creative diversity.

Longing for warmth and harmony, perfectly pictured in natural and earthy shades. Highlights are placed by using transparent or iridescent threads for luxury embroideries in dropout technique.

POLY FLASH by Gunold – design by GS UK

Noble gold hues bring back some glamour – here embroidered with Gunold’s POLY FLASH thread which is extremely soft, however, offering a metallic effect at the same time.

Classical autumn colours and designs get a fashionable kick from accentuated violets, interpreted in airy and light embroideries.

Fabrics or parts of fabrics are braided, torn, resewn with fancy seams or frayed edges and they even get further decoration or alienation - fabric manipulations at its best !

Transparency is still a strong  theme as long as it is interpreted not too classical or innocent. There are interesting coatings with special foils or embroideries using transparent threads, even as a second layer on top of a „normal“ embroidery.

Highlighting parts of a garment with fancy seams is a nice idea, for example the hood of a sweater, the breast pocket,  cuff or collar. The more, the merrier – so dare to use Gunold’s embroidery and effect threads for this.

White, off-white and creme hues usually are not so common in autumn and winter collections. But in the winter 2022 / 2023 season we’ll see a lot of it. These shades provide a kuddly and cozy feel-good atmosphere…
