“Don’t wait for inspiration. It comes while working.”
Necessity leads to the greatest discoveries. The world scenario pushes us toward the need to reinvent our yarns in a more sustainable way but without compromising quality and imagination. Collections of higher quality and greater artistic value, strategic in dyeing techniques and colors choices.
The porpouse is producing collections that are contemporary in both trend and coherent way.
Fortunately, creative processes, in every artistic field, get from the available and make it desirable.
The designer’s great interpretive ability leads him or her to take the massive presence of heaps of polluting materials, textile waste, both pre and post consumer, and turn it into a visionary product.
This ability of the designers is a challenge that the Italian spinning mills have been able to grasp and for this reason they have proposed in the winter collections new yarns and new tools that in these months the designers are interpreting working on the visible and transforming it into the incredible, desirable and unexplored.
The spinning mills have indulged and in this phase of creative recycling have reinterpreted tweed yarns, and to the traditional silk button they have substituted buttons made of recycled, volumized, recovered, frayed materials.
Among the many proposed yarns, two strong trends are undeniable, that of a medley of colorful buttons destined to sustain us in a future that in the short term that is expected to be complex; and the other trend, more romantic and delicate current that wants to welcome and comfort us. Comfort pallets of colors, oranges and toasted shades of brown, a series of shades intended to protect and envelop us as a hot chocolate would on a winter’s day.
In the contemporary interpretations of knit, yarns are used in purity (because only pure yarns can be put back into the virtuous recycling system), and it is in the style’s shapes that we distinguish the immortal classic knit from the leading new trendy knit.
The traditional knit constructed by 4 elements (Front, back and sleeves) is transformed into a complex of 6 elements (Front, back, sleeves and 2 sides). The sides are enriched with side panels, and in the most sophisticated knits the longer side inserts are knotted, buttoned, and interwoven. New tentacle shapes enter our everyday life.
In the simplest solutions very long sleeves are combined with very short bodies.
In each case, knits become three-dimensional to create textural and protective effects; knit coats replace the down jacket to better respond to this new and stable generalized rise in temperatures.
Sleeves open up into bangs that widen instead of lengthening and are transformed, intertwining, into new three-dimensional sleeve effects in a metadimensional style (the new fashion frontier).
In more classic interpretations, tweeded yarn alternate with linear yarns and create animated tartan effects or textured geometric inlays.
Animalier played on both the jacquard effect and the embossed effect of tweeded yarns reaches new interpretative possibilities.
Tweed yarns are multicolored or two-tone colours but in the new collections , yarn is printed with one colour tweed.
Italian spinning mills have taken up the challenge of turning waste into a resource, designers turn resources into creativity.
