Hi readers!
Welcome back to another blog.

The 2024 Spring/Summer Collection Weeks were held from September to October. Despite the world’s uncertain circumstances, many collections were presented that conveyed the thoughts and ideas of each designer towards fashion.

As an impression of the 2024 Spring/Summer collections, there was a continuation of trends from the 2023-24 Autumn/Winter season, with many updates to those trends. However, distinctive differences were observed among brands, creating a sense of diversification.

In this blog, we will go through some of the styles and materials that will be trending from the 2024 Spring/Summer collection! We will also introduce recommended materials from ApparelX that align with the trends of 2024 Spring/Summer, so please be sure to read until the end.

Trend Direction

The trend of sheer materials, which has continued for the past few seasons, persists in the current season as well.

In autumn/winter, the sheer trend featured translucency combined with a sense of weight and elegance. In contrast, this season’s trend focuses on lightweight and airy impressions with sheer materials.

Many brands are showcasing a light and airy impression using sheer items in nuanced colors, which are also trending colors. Brands are expressing a lively movement by incorporating sheer materials into dresses and skirts.

Quiet Luxury

The emerging trend of ‘Quiet Luxury.

It refers to a style that expresses luxury through the quality of materials and refined patterns, with understated colors and designs, without making a strong statement through logos or bold designs.

Representative brands like ‘The Row’ and ‘Jill Sander,’ and even brands like ‘Gucci’ and ‘Fendi,’ showcased looks in this season with a particular focus on Quiet Luxury.

Trend Color

Continuing from last season, red items are still prominently featured in many collections.

Last season saw many vivid red items, and while there are still vivid ones this season, there is an impression of a more diverse use of red, incorporating a variety of shades.

In particular, ‘Ferragamo’ has continued to prominently feature red, expanding its use with a broader range compared to last season.

Alongside the prominence of vivid colors, there were also many calm blues and greens, reminiscent of pastel colors.

These soft colors pair exceptionally well with sheer materials and fabrics with drape, exuding a subtle yet impactful presence.

Items in luxurious colors such as silver and gold were also widely observed.

Styles ranging from outfits completely covered in metallic colors to looks where hints of metallic were used in accessories and as decorative accents were presented, showcasing a wide range of incorporation.

Trend Material

Sheer Fabric

As mentioned in the trend direction, sheer materials continue to be a trend this season as well.

Classic sheer materials such as chiffon, tulle, and organza are being used. However, there is a particular popularity for nuanced colors that can express lightness, especially in sheer fabrics.

This trend has been gaining momentum for the past few seasons as well.

Until now, distressed denim, Y2K, and street-style influenced denim were prevalent. However, this season, there is a movement towards a return to clean and simple denim.

Similar to Quiet Luxury, this trend highlights the excellence of materials and silhouette, focusing on the quality of both.

Flowy/Drape Material

This season, there is a prevalent style that incorporates materials with a flowing, slightly glossy texture into fluid silhouettes.

While the fabric materials vary, it is undeniable that satin weaving was extensively used.

The compatibility of this trend with nuanced colors, which are also trend colors, is outstanding.
