Research focuses on textures that enhance elongated shapes, for vertical parallelisms made with natural materials, using regenerated animal and synthetic fibres.
Wool is reinterpreted by re-imagining pinstripes, creating patterns with urban lines, graphic layering and parallel micro block colours.
Cotton includes the transformation of poplin, twill weaves and cloth embellished with three-dimensional stripes, but also with seersucker, honeycomb and leno weave fabrics with perspective changes on impalpable textures.
Denim is combined with silky details to play with chromatic proportions, between micro and macro lines.
Coarse fibres such as linen, hemp and jute introduce staggered striped constructions, enriched with shiny treatments or contrasting inserts.
Typically flowing rayon, cupro and modal fabrics are embellished with perpendicular optical patterns.
The natural shine of silk is enhanced by transparencies and Lurex details.
Regenerated polyesters and nylons are lightweight and crinkled, characterised by transparencies and compactness that punctuate the variations between shiny and matt and accentuate vertical reinterpretations of the regimental tie.
