Knit’AIR
AIR is the unifying theme for spring summer 15.

Openwork variations 
Fancy products with airy stitches, loose stitches and ribbon leading, either all-over or engineered.
Open knits such as mesh and crochet, made with round, silky or cottony yarns, for gauges 5 to 14.
Feminine openwork, with bold wrap-tops, layered tops and dresses.
Airy looks in a masculine vein, with sporty mesh effects in sweaters and tank tops.

Air currents
Garment openings, with engineered vents, slits and cut-outs.
Quite even knits, with very neat finishing details, obtained by using smooth yarns and fine cables, knitted in gauges 12 to 18.
Sweaters, tank tops, dresses and bare backs that let air flow through, partially uncover the body, and lend fullness.

Light transparencies 
Contrasting opaque and transparent knits, in stripes, intarsias and jacquards.
Transparency generated via the knitting: varying stitch tightness, alternating single and double needle beds.
Playing with fibres/filaments and different yarn counts to create contrasting or alternating opacities and transparencies, for gauges 8 to 18.
Partially transparent garments, with invisible sleeves, hoods, collars, ribbing or the busts of dresses.

Clouds of fibres 
Extra-light, noble and enveloping fibres. Vaporous wools and cashmeres, polyamide blends with a pearly sparkle,
extra fine linens and cottons with delicately knopped or slubbed effects, in gauges 14 to 18.
Clothing pieces architecturally structured by finishing details – ribbing,
structuring seams and knit decreasings – for fronts, backs and sleeves in weightless knits.
