The launch of the ISPO Textrends Spring/Summer 2022 color trends falls under the overall inspiration of the rehumanizing mood. There is a move towards a new soft and kind appeal that still has vigor, as we continue to embrace digitalization but maintain the integrity and creativity that humans bring. A balanced and harmonized path is required, as we move forward, working digitalization to our advantage, whilst maintaining our unique ID.
From ingredient brands, brand developers and designers can mix’n’match the season’s color offering with existing bestselling seasonal tones. Brands, you know you customers, you know your product range, work the colors as to how you see fit. We don’t have to be sheep, brands need to take creative control pulling from in-house ideas as well as what is suggested. We aren’t dedicating a key for the season, we want to provide a springboard in creating innovative collections and overcoming the sameness that global consumers bemoan of.
Sharing is the new caring, which is why ISPO Textrends is regarded as the starting point for the new season, with colors, Mega Trends and textile trends released in preparation for the product applications that will be displayed at ISPO Textrends Outdoor by ISPO and ISPO Shanghai.

K-pop inspired, this is a bittersweet, sharp direction. Cool touch fabrics feature in a refreshing approach for a chill factor. A synthetic mood that can easily interplay with the core palette. Work it fully, work it matte, work it bright, but most of all work it in a way that it will pop!
Disruption is becoming ubiquitous in today's world, and this palette takes a divisive use of bold and neon tones creating a rebellious spirit, and a 'bring it on' attitude. Clashing, combative, chaotic in prints and yarn-dyed effects or just using a tone as a solid, the identity of this palette is positively kicking.
White is a key component for the Spring/Summer season but it is the flashes of primary tones offered in a new metallic level that catches the light.
