This theme promotes enveloping and sinuous materials, where plant fibres are the protagonists for exclusively sustainable and environmentally friendly variations.
Materials with beneficial properties, such as those based on aloe, bamboo and agave, make it possible to care for and protect the skin.
Cotton in this theme represents the need to cover oneself with botanical weaves: we find, for example, poplin, muslin and organza in greenish tones from which mini floral weaves emerge, while Flanders linen and gabardines offer embossed botanical textures.
Linen is proposed on materials with a raw but luxurious look, with a recorded aesthetic, which envisages an industrial development with an artisan flair, enhancing the unevenness of the threads in heavy jacquards and the natural nuances in light textures.
Hemp, jute and ramie portray the stems of the plants from which they come, both in the coarse weaves and thanks to the botanical treatments and embossed prints that embellish them.
We also discover juxtapositions between plant fibres and regenerated synthetic fibres that enhance the three-dimensionality of the weave and the pattern; nylon combines with cotton for textures characterised by alternating shiny and matt, elastane meets hemp to interpret the embossed foliage on heavy twills and Lurex enhances the bamboo, linen and ramie textures, embracing their patterns.
Silk has been modulated into soft textures in light velvets, but also crunchy in lace and wide-mesh plant embroidery.
Rayon’s shininess is also enhanced by the three-dimensionality of matelassé to represent the translucent atmosphere of petals and corollas.
Plant fibres, however, do not provide only bright proposals, but also viscose with a cotton texture, characterised by shaded micro-patterns and botanical tonalities.
