2. Devoré

The devoré technique creates patterns through wear and tear. Floral designs, stains and polka dots are recurrent. Brands work with the transparency created by wear and tear, offering a detail that adds sensuality.


3. Rhinestones

Rhinestones and beads reinforce the luxuriousness of the velvet. Occasional inserts throughout the piece create distinctive designs. Delicate and tiny beads offer sophistication in a discreet way.


4. Gemstones shades

Gemstone tones are enhanced in bright, luxurious fabrics, with velvet a key trend. Emerald green, lapis lazuli blue and amethyst purple are trending colors.
