Welcome to TFL’s new Colour Trend Catalogue for the season Spring-Summer 2023. In this brochure we present the colour trends for leather garment, footwear, accessories and upholstery.
Comfort is naturally a priority, but we want to go back to having fun with clothes and accessories accompanying new glam looks, thus, colour-colour-colour as well as prints-prints-prints. We will lead with gamer’s bait, the trend merging the world of video-games with fashion.
“Skin” – the new acronym from the incredibly popular video game Fortnite – is a way to adopt an entirely new look. It encapsulates the many ways fashion and gaming influence each other and helps us to introduce our skin trends:
Bon Ton Rock Skin: Every imaginable form of pearlescent gloss, pearly nappas and iridescent pearl finishes on kidskin prints and calfskin with micro-deerskin grain and real ostrich. Dégradé pearlescent leathers, pearly mixed with fluorescent finishes, antique pearlescent looks with brush-off waxes, and hand-padded pearly leathers.
Silk Touch Skin: A silky voile handle for nappa that drapes like a fabric, and a satin handle for supple, rubbery calf leather sides.A grosgrain handle for milled leathers with brilliant sleek satiny tops. A crêpe de chine handle for napped finishes on buffed leathers. A taffeta handle for all embossed and boarded leathers or subtle geometric micro designs, which are then finished with a patent look.
Renewable Skin: we are working with renewable chemistry, biodegradable enzymes and proteins in wet-end, resins and fatliquors from renewable sources in finishing, in order to reinterpret even classic articles under a “Bio” concept. Leather that really appeals to vegetable-tanning fans will be the perfect stage on which to present this “Marvel” in all its glory, redesigning vegetable-tanned leather, illuminating it with new light.
Nubuck Skin: The elephant grain makes its presence felt on nubuck surfaces, adorable to the touch and translucent, making it the perfect surface when travelling for either business or pleasure. More (PDF, 2.0MB)
Calfskin, lambskin, bovine leathers and even crocodile leathers are converted into tempting things with charming finishes and a definite discernment for appearances and weights that reflect in the softness of the leathers and the aptly chosen chemicals used to ennoble them. We now would like to invite you to close your eyes and imagine that you are back in all those wonderful places reminding you of your childhood, your loved ones or holidays...
