Textile trends, prints and motives 2016-2017: Air Element
This beautiful and expressive trend will replace our favorite beetles, butterflies and dragonflies. The main theme of this trend: the birds and feathers. Due to air singing birds becomes a living, we feel it as filled with matter as the moving object. These properties of the air element Jupiter in Libra (from September 2016 to October 2017) emphasizes. Birds already settled on our clothes as a brooch on the lapel, in the form of embroidery on sweaters and coats. It is a variety of birds: in flight and sitting on a branch, songbirds and raptors, tropical ephemeral creation, hummingbirds and overweight penguins. I want to emphasize that the agricultural theme (ducks and geese), associated with Virgo sign, already relegated to the background. In this print birds against the blue sky (element of Air) are used, and not on the green lawn (the element of Earth). Feathers in this topic are also alive, filled with air. Of course, they are different from the typical fabric for the pillowcases with the image of feathers. I want to emphasize that the peacock feathers are related to Leo sign, but not to Libra sign.
Forecasts by COLOUR & TRENDS for the season Fall/Winter 2016/2017 contain many examples with birds motives. We do’ nt agree with this position. For us birds do not fly to warm countries. Textile trend — Air Element —exists for us right now, not for the next season. Because we have our own tools, correct and accurate. These are planet aspects and astrological cycles. According to them, acent on air theme will fail strictly in October 2017. In terms of Fashion Astrology, Jupiter will leave Libra sign and will enter into Scorpio sign, who will write very another fashion story.
Another theme of the textile trend: clouds, sky, air movement, air balloons, airplanes, etc. Usually these fabrics have light background, sparse motives, the overall experience is as filled with air. These fabrics look like breathing. It is clear that such motivations and characteristics of the best are compatible with thin fabrics, such as batiste, voile, Gamma Draconis or poplin, satin, glossy cotton.
