- Need for greater individuality
- Sophisticated colour concept
- Matt, glazed or natural sheen w. glittering effects
- Natural looks and back to basics
- Innovative surfaces
- Lightweights with handle

The desire and demand for greater individuality will accompany us in this millennium, ending the uniformity which influenced past seasons. New elements will be found in sophisticated details such as subtle yarn effects, constructions and designs or are revealed in the shape of subtle accessories. These also include a desire for increased femininity and decoration, avoiding anything obvious and obtrusive.

A versatile and sophisticated colour concept is sub- ordinate to qualities. The focus is on soft, blurry-looking, foggy, intermediate shades such as versions of grey and blue. Lively, slightly broken shades, sophisticated dark tones and light, cool, almost transparent tinted faux-blancs.

To meet the need for greater naturalness, fabrics are matt or have a glaze through to a natural sheen. To provide a luxurious look and for effects yarns, the focus is on a sheen that is silky and mother-of-pearl, iridescent + restrained metallic and cool with the look of titanium.

Natural looks and fabrics with a basic look have an important role, e.g. in PONTELLA and PONTELLA MICRO. They are influenced by work wear and leisure time sports such as angling or hiking. This includes everything comfortable, cozy and warming, flannel, attractive polar fleece, reversible composite knit fabrics which underpin the trend toward voluminous lightweight fabrics.

The season’s fashion statement is innovative surfaces. They are never boring or dull, but are lively, structured and imaginative, even if only at second glance. Help is provided by effect yarns – such as mouliné, chiné and bouclé, the interplay of different yarn strengths, sophisticated constructions, e.g. double cloth and finishes. Innovative surfaces = SETILA WEAR.

Qualities remain lightweight even for optically voluminous, puffy or looks with a heavier appearance. Silky qualities, such as SETILA and SETILA MICRO have more handle with a somewhat heavier drape. Finishes that support a warming, comfortable, cozy feel such as raising, emerizing, felting, washing, which give the fabrics more volume and take into account the need for naturalness.


The design inspirations are varied and versatile. Individuality and imagination play a major role. Clever print backgrounds with sophistication, e.g. with cool metallic, mother- of-pearl, fringe or ribbon effect give the designs a third dimension. Modern print backgrounds are: chiné and mouliné, Jacquard, matelassé, découpé, but also artisan-style looks such as irregular wrinkle effects, chiffon, tulle, lace variations, embroidery, flannel, loden and non-woven. Up-to-the minute looks include partial prints, borders, composés and patchwork for use in all areas.
