On trend colours available from Pongees to meet demand for last minute autumn/winter collections

Shades that fit into the top colour stories for autumn/winter are being promoted by silk specialists Pongees to meet immediate demand from designers looking to place last minute orders.

Pongees holds thousands of fabrics in stock and has a 1 metre minimum; it can also supply European buyers with fabrics within a few days, without any additional import charges, just as it did pre Brexit.

The colour stories being promoted, predicted by global consumer and design trend and colour authorities WGSN and Coloro are: Intense Rust, Midnight Plum, Sustained Grey, Cool Matcha and Apricot Crush.

“Two years ago, these shades were selected to reflect stability and reassurance that connect with nature, as well as escapism and sustainability.  Today they are even more appropriate given how cautious consumers are about the future,” says Nick Moore, managing director, Pongees.

“With our huge colour palette, Pongees not only offers the top shades for autumn/winter but also those being tipped for spring 2025 collections.

“Silk is also in vogue, as from an environmentally-friendly perspective it comes from a natural source, is biodegrabable and has a low environmental impact.”

Many of Pongees silks are woven from silkworms, whose exclusive diet is the mulberry leaf; its plain dyed fabrics meet OEKO-TEX standards.

Pongees’ natural (greige) options are an ideal base for designers to personalise with bespoke prints and dyes to enhance exclusivity.
