The artistic directors of Texworld Paris, Louis Gérin et Grégory Lamaud, deliver once again this year the outlines of spring-summer 2021 fashion. Developed as an inspirational notebook – materials and colors – the Setback Trendbook irrigates the Trends Forum space located in the heart of Fairyland for Fashion. This is also a starting point for 2021 creations, which draws its source from the heart of a challenged nature, but which has become all-powerful again, through 4 major movements : breathing, contemplation, abnegation and evolution…
Respiration : « … the right level of oxygen necessary for life. A thin layer of atmosphere in the middle of vacuum and cold space. Life is on probation. Ready to start up again. Ready to die. On stand-by while waiting for our next move. We are also ready. Immobility is no longer an option regardless of the outcome of our next decisions. We will have to restore the balance of this precarious miracle, even if it means withdrawing from the equation. … »
Abnegation : « We stopped to breathe. We opened our eyes to contemplate. Freed of our mortuary ambitions, we finally look with humility... So we make an act of contrition. We tidy up, hide, make the traces of our civilizations disappear. We have once again become craftsmen of the universe. No longer seeking to avoid our role. To take its place, take on its work, for the good of all. We make ourselves very small. Almost invisible. Fetal… »
Contemplation : « We have breathed, now we must be inspired. Life has been there for nearly four billion years. Perfect. Balanced. Beautiful, quite simply. You have to contemplate to understand. We have analyzed its machinery and mechanisms to replace them. We were on the wrong track. If we look closely, it is its beauty and perfection that strikes us… Eternal. She will be the last survivor of our massacres. She is thus the solution. The force of life.
Évolution : « The vision of tomorrow. Away from utopias. No human fireworks. Rainbow of colors. Sober and functional. An environment of humility. Where the human exists, but discreetly. Where it finds its place once again. One of many. The fundamental elements have regained prominence. Biological engineering is the new inspiration. »
The Trends Forum of the fair will be divided into 4 large distinct areas, in order to provide the most concrete reflection of these inspirations. Each area will illustrate one of these 4 major creative themes for 2021. A fifth area, structured around an unifying Sustainable theme, will serve as an introduction and provide perspective from the entrance of Hall 4.
