Bouclette, long hairs, jacquards, flockings

ÉLISE DELFORGE, LENER CORDIER (ZOOM, 6ZG15)
“Our coat collection includes ball-shapes and slightly full three-quarter coats. Along with these somewhat voluminous silhouettes, we have raised textures in several items. It’s one of the season’s important trends. Particularly long-hairs, alpaca, bouclette, jacquards and tweed fabrics, both plain and two-toned. Coats are once again becoming really daring and eye-catching pieces.”

“We’re presenting different flockings, from diamonds on sequins for womenswear to Prince of Wales checks on a super soft wool for menswear. Our developments also include quilted effects and motifs sewn on fabrics. We worked a lot of ‘natural and technical’ mixes with contrasting textures, with a wool jacquard on one face and a technical waterresistant and breathable fabric on the other.”

GIANCARLO BIANCALANI, LANIFICIO RAFANELLI (PREMIÈRE VISION, 6L1)
“This season we addressed the demand for visible, tangible effects. The goal was to spur consumer purchases. Our collection breaks down a range of specific references: jacquards, resins, cloqué or splotchy effects through the use of resins, amplified weaves, alpaca-looks with more or less distinct patterns and raised textures thanks to bouclette.”

ALFREDO RAMPONI, RAMPONI® (MODAMONT, 4F30)
“By defi nition our collection creates a raised effect. Demand is growing, because brands want and even need to personalise their products. We have a broad variety of nailheads, in metal or in plastic, in colours or neutrals, matt or shiny, which can be affixed like tacks to leather and all types of fabric. There’s a vast choice of shapes between pointed or figured nails, round shapes, pyramids and stones, for 3D decoration.”
