Autumn/Winter 14/15

The Wool Lab Autumn Winter 2014/15 BagFor Autumn Winter 2014/15 The Wool Lab showcased seven inspirational themes.

The Wool Lab is a seasonal guide to the best wool fabrics and yarns in the world.

Themes

The Club

The Club

This theme is inspired by the relaxed but sophisticated elegance of the members of the prestigious London Clubs, well suiting the increasingly evident look for a formal but contemporary elegance, with a touch of nostalgia for the early-1900s.

Highlands

Highlands

The mood was inspired by two trends becoming more and more evident: the coming back of the jacket and of tweed or tweed-look fabrics. The triumph is the colours of Highland’s nature.

Simple Chic

Simple Chic

The theme is a hymn to simplicity. Very special fabrics and yarns reinforce and give a tone to the simplicity of the lines and the overall minimalism of the taste. 

Fairy Tale

Fairy Tale

Romantic and magic, symbolising a will to escape, the trend is inspired by the enchanted world of fairy tales. 

Street Market

Street Market

Inspired by the mix and match atmosphere of Camden Town, the flea market in London which has been a symbol of streetwear trends for generations. Self-fashion is extremely trendy in the urban wear market, with a mix of tastes and styles, vintage and contemporary, for a very cool and personal way to dress. 

Cinque Ports

Cinque Ports

The theme is inspired by earth and sea. Austere but fascinating places on the shores of the English Channel. 

Xtreme Knitwear

Xtreme Knitwear

It is becoming more and more evident the trend of the great return, in all its versions, is knitting. Wool expresses its highest creativity in this area, especially with thick yarns, chain yarns, with a slubby, soft and compact touch.
