Survey of the European denim fairs for spring/summer 2024
published in Issue 217, February 2023
The European denim fairs for the spring/summer 2024 season were held in an optimistic spirit. This was in spite of challenges affecting the whole of the textile and clothing industry, including difficulties in procuring raw materials and sharp increases in fuel and energy costs. At the same time, the denim industry is facing several of its own challenges. The price of cotton--the industry's principal raw material--is fluctuating, and the industry is facing growing criticism that it is not taking sufficient action to reduce the damage to the environment which its operations are causing. It was evident at the fairs that many exhibitors had acknowledged this criticism in the development of their product ranges for the spring/summer 2024 season. For example, many had focused on improving the recyclability of their products, some had replaced resource-intensive manufacturing processes with waterless manufacturing processes in the development of their products, and others had chosen to repurpose agricultural crop waste and food waste in the manufacture of their products. Aside from indigo blue, collections for the spring/summer 2024 season are dominated by bright and exuberant colours. At the same time, decoration, effects and finishes are heavily influenced by "grunge". Also, denim fabrics which feature discoloration, irregularities and stains are popular. Stretch denim is prominent in collections for the season, as it has been in previous recent seasons, and, importantly, comfort is key.
