COTTON CLUB - COMFORTABLE VISCOSE
Transparencies and overlays. Cotton gauze reaches infinitesimal fineness (Voile Nm 80). The natural look is evident in the mélanges suggestions (Voice Nm 43). Dylan Nm 2.4 structures are larger and more grainy, in which the raw material is sublimated. Viscose, even in haphazard striped prints, is delicate stretch and tactile material (Tipo, Tipo Printed Nm 2/50 ; Tipino Nm 2/80). The garments to be made are simple and subtly technical. The colours are spicy, warm earth and sun colours illuminated by the blank whites.
Clean and basic linens are perfect for recalling emotions and sensations of the desert, especially if worn in sand, khaki and army green colours (Line, Line Imprimé Nm 20). Create a colonial look by playing with transparencies (Evelyn Nm 43) or creating openwork knitwear and pullovers with thicker counts, (Harley Nm 4.7), elegant and sophisticated with the insertion of sequins (Chopper Nm 4.2).
TECHNO & LIGHT
Lightness is the key also for yarns gauge 3 and 5 which have a cotton based filler structure. The garments are three-dimensional, sporty but elegant, balanced between elegance and technical. Ribbed, moss stitch and small neps represent the yarns of this family, matt (Float Nm 4.2 ; Float 5 Nm 6.2 ; Teak Nm 4.2) and shiny (Femme Nm 5.5 ; Roy Nm 4.5).
Flashes of lurex on viscose (Mirror Nm 46) and on cotton (Notturno Nm 74) to illuminate the summer nights and transparent yarns like fishing lines for interventions, inlays and stitch play (Fishing 112 Nm). Gold is always discreet and never excessive. The colours are those of metals.
INDUSTRIA ITALIANA FILATI
The essential basic garment, to be folded into the suitcase or rolled into the backpack. Ribbing, squares, micro jacquard and inlays. Mélanges or solid colour crèpe by hand viscose (Spring Crepe Nm 25), stretch and linear to be printed, also by garment (Corsa Nm 21), in blend with polyester tone on tone or with contrast (Nancy Nm 39). Linear cotton and with grisaille effect for knitwear even for men (Ponte Nm 6.5; Aston Nm 10).
The family dedicated to RECYCLED yarns is important, in which part of the composition is obtained by regenerated fibres from coloured cotton, and then reworked in simple structures such as cablé (Tennis Nm 6) or chains (Junior Nm 3.3) or in wrapped threads and twisted with lurex, printed components and sequins ( Alibi Nm 5, Zumba Nm 11, Dancing Nm 2, Guapa Nm 5, Twiga Nm 3.4). An eco-friendly choice in line with the growing demand for this type of product by the international market.
FANCY & METALLIC
Patterns, colours, prints and so much more lurex that illuminates the colours of viscose and cotton in more counts (Frizzante Nm 35, Spectra Nm 3.8, Mint Nm 26). Printed threads and then twisted, matt and shiny. (Tequila Nm 25)
The new entry in the collection is a pack of 6 no-season and evergreen yarns. Mohair and alpaca gauzes (Indiana 20 Nm 20, Mattina Nm 13, Aimer Nm 25) wool and nylon blends, warm hand comfortable viscose (Yoga Nm 2/50, Fitness Nm 18 and Pilates Nm 2/50. Threads that are transformed into mini cardigans, twinsets and shawls, essential garments to travel with and for cruises.
