Schmid: The trends for the next A/W 2017/18 season – Chapter 4: Pastiche
Nov 23, 2016
The unveiling of Schmid’s most striking fashion trends progresses with Pastiche.
Pastiche is chic extravagance, geometrical patterns and Art Attack inspiration mixing to create a surreal universe that reminds us of Alice in Wonderland but with a psychedelic twist. This style is strictly feminine, refined yet simple. A modern French rococo where lines, shapes and colour contrasts unite, creating a blend of exoticism and elegance.
The follower, sophisticated and witty, reviews the great icons of the past with a new perspective. Chanel and Missoni are certainly the most representative brands of this theme.
Pastiche’s colour palette brings to mind a spice market or the workshop of a great perfumer. The hues are bright and vibrant: curry yellow, burgundy leaning towards cherry, tangerine, and intense blues with touches of black to define the lines.
Eccentric and irreverent, the materials include lines and surfaces that always have a feminine touch. Glitter is used to colour prints with a ethno-pop flavour and handmade aerographies. Composite PVC surfaces incorporating gold leaf flakes also play a significant role. A topic that has undoubtly been studied and updated is houndstooth flock on mesh or as a jacquard bouclé, 3D rhombus jacquard, contrasting colour fish-bones and, to conclude, satin lurex with laminated stripes.
