Soft shimmer metallics, recolored snakeskin looks, and silky satins add tactile delight to clothes, while chrome, metal-free, and veg-tan leather add sustainability. In terms of materials, there’s a move toward recycled polyesters and nylons, low-impact dyes and finishes, and certified organic undyed natural canvas.
