[Report] Lineapelle. From nature to the city, passing through the 1980s: the materials for Spring Summer 2023

report lineapelle - spring summer 2023 materials trends

Materials of the next Spring Summer 2023 speak the language of nature, playing on the theme of lightness. Ample space is also given to the urban style, fun and playful, flanked by bright colors, strong and decisive shades, that recall the excesses of the ’80s.

It is a journey into the past, but also into the typical places of quiet nature or the chaotic urban context, the one that is proposed for next spring summer 2023.

Leathers, fabrics, synthetics, accessories and components seen at Lineapelle recall retro aspects alongside with very bright colour tones, albeit in pastel shades.

You stumble upon the theme of lightness, a realm of holes, nets, open weaves, swellings, reptiles with aerial scales, light prints, 3D effects that empty the matter.

As for the return to nature, we let ourselves be carried away by mellow suede, greased and velvety leathers, ultra-soft suede, fur, with an emphasis on new eco-friendly solutions.

The journey to the urban is cloaked in a fun and playful mood that loves to get noticed and freely mixes ethnic, tropical and animal liveries.

For a blast from the past, we rely on the triumph of excess and good mood, fluorescent colours, strong and decisive shades, hyper-coloured and pop prints, ‘candy paper’ effects, ‘screamed’ metallics. Enamelled and coloured metalwork, studs, chains. There remains the final desire to be noticed with iridescence, luminescence and metallic reflections.

Spring/Summer 2024: Trends for footwear and leather goods

And if the phygital world shifts weight toward a more physical presence, technology continues to advance, opening the way for designers to explore new techniques in a 4.0 creativity perspective.
Let us not forget the new geopolitical dynamics that have changed attitudes, values and priorities. ‘Surfing’ represents the most up-to-date mood mixing the spirit of adventure, freedom of movement, challenge, exploration and technical innovation. Design, materials, shapes, volumes and colors of footwear and leather goods for the upcoming spring/summer 2024 are influenced by this trend that relies on imaginative materials, very sinuous shapes, metallic surfaces, and the upcycling of organic materials. Adventure and technique also collide in color palettes that contrast and overlap.

Soles and heels: there is no getting away from sustainability

By now it is clear and obvious, the world of footwear structures can no longer ignore the issues of sustainability, the constant and incremental search for new materials, whether they are of organic or recycled origin. Almost all of the innovative designs proposed for the upcoming fall winter 2023/24 have emphasized environmental friendliness.

If we look at the aesthetic themes emphasized, thick and important bottoms designed specially to accompany the new wave of boots that will undoubtedly invade future winter storefronts jump out at us.
But the theme of the height of the bottoms and their solid and massive appearance remains well anchored even in the low models, whether sneakers or loafers. Colors and graphics, a theme usually unaccustomed for the cold months, are instead making their way into the 2023s.
Beware the graphics are also going to invade the territories of elegance, which is unlikely to be expressed in minimalist tones.
