Beyond the launch of a capsule collection of sustainable white fabrics, Albini Donna’s AW1920 women’s shirting collection looks to be dominated by colour, with 70’s-style stripes taking centre stage among fancies.
For next winter, Albini’s unique yarn-dyed expertise is put to great effect in a line of women’s shirtings where colour plays a starring role. The world renowned producer of Giza 45 and Supima shirtings has fun this season with lively colour schemes ranging from a nourishing ochre yellow, rich pink, mysterious violet and toxic rust to softer ‘bluette’ and calming greens. Deep hues join forces with timeless neutrals, blues, and the mandatory black and white in a myriad of constructions.
Albini Donna’s vast AW1920 range of plains, micro-textured semi-plains, flannels, jacquards and other weaves are made from select fibres, some natural, others not. At the next Blossom Première Vision, Albini Donna launches its first capsule collection of sustainable white fabrics made with organic cotton, organic silk, and branded man-made cellulosics (think Tencel Micro and Cupro). Wool marks its presence too. The Italian mill picks the finest micron wools to be spun using an in-house engineering technique, to offer fabrics of outstanding quality, elevated by a warm cosiness and contemporary appeal.
Along with paisley jacquards and fancies in cut-yarn constructions, Albini Donna favours striped patterns inspired by 1970’s designs.
