In this theme, natural fibres embrace complex patterns to create timeless materials. In fact, silk is interpreted with iridescent textures such as shantung, taffeta and crepe satin, enhanced by geometric patterns.
Cotton, developed on sateen, cretonne and Panama, is presented with compact characteristics to accommodate shapes and layered graphics.
Changeable patterns such as bird’s eye and piqué draw out the natural fibres and dense structures.
Wool is interpreted in very fresh constructions, mixed with different types of thread such as linen, silk, soya and bamboo for jacquards with rational patterns and three-dimensional textures.
Rayon, cupro and modal blend with regenerated nylon and polyester to create architectural weaves, where alternating glossy and matt give motion to the fabric, providing transparency and lightness to lace and embroidery.
Synthetic fibres such as regenerated nylon, polyester and polytetrafluoroethylene, have useful characteristics for the production of materials with three-dimensional geometric shapes, such as pleats, quilting, light velvets and matelassé.
Stretchy, acetate and metallic fibres inserted in impalpable jacquards represent the dynamic need of this theme, where shapes seem to move and overlap accompanying the fluctuations between compactness and transparency.
The treatments are also designed to depict the light planes and shadow cones that are typical of architecture from the Forties and Fifties.
