«People have a deep-seated urge to stand out from the crowd and flaunt their personalities. Thanks to an almost limitless range of techniques and possibilities, embroidery is perfect for transforming garments and creating exceptional pieces. A lot of brands have caught on to this. Some of our latest products include heavier weights, like a multicolour embroidery with a padded, tapestry feel.. »

«There’s no doubt that when times are tough, dressing becomes a way to fight the gloom while also affirming one’s personality. And textile prints are the most direct way of communicating this message. Digital printing lets you achieve broader technical effects, both in terms of photographic precision and the quality of the blurriness or mix of elements, which can range from realistic to otherworldly. So large clothing items become an excellent background for these messages. »

CARLO CURTI, FASAC, (PREMIÈRE VISION, 5C18-5D17)
«There’s more fantasy, so that means more room for creativity, colour and innovation. Brands expect innovative ideas, while the demand for decoration is a global trend, tied to a search for personalisation. In response, we are developing sequinned prints, prints on folded silks, and printed wools for inserts, jackets and coats.»

«Fantasy has been hardwired into our DNA forever, but we’re always searching for ways to innovate. For the first time, our offer includes fur with ink-jet prints: brightly coloured splotches or ginghams. It’s a way to update looks and play on the continuity between seasons. We also play on hair lengths, creating graduated thicknesses through patches or new shorn effects. »
