Double-face fabrics do a 180 to follow your changing moods and needs

Double-face and two-faced: the 2019-20 Fall/Winter season offers astonishing and lavish fabrics exploring every facet of duality, ambivalence, showing equally interesting sides, no matter how you flip the coin, with strong contrasts to create surprise, vary the pleasures, and create a showcase for one another.

 

Depending on the mood, the circumstances, the time of day or the weather, double-face fabrics can metamorphose into a totally different personality. They can switch from neutral to bright, light to dark, solid to print, from brushed wool to silky smooth plains. Opposites attract and complete each other: when one side expresses modesty, the other goes for opulence; why choose when you can play the chameleon? With double-face fabrics, we’re looking for a personal recipe, a combination that allows us to preserve our identity in all the forms it may take.

 

The most seductive fabrics can call on the services of technical textiles: stretchy, water-repellent, water-proof, fleeced, quilted, antistatic, insulating, reflective and eco-responsible. At the same time, high-performance textiles are stepping into the spotlight with impressive visual and tactile qualities which have wrongly been neglected for so long: the technical features are still there, but with new appeal, colours, softness or shine. Practicality and aesthetics now go hand in hand.

 

Assembling apparently contradictory textures, achieving unusual drape effects, a different hold, rounder volumes, edgy or supple: double-face fabrics introduce genuinely new and astonishing characteristics. The ordinary becomes extraordinary, popping up in unassuming places: a burst of bright colour plays hide & seek inside a grey collar, a reversible oversize jacket reveals a sumptuous jacquard, a chiné cardigan parades its inner sparkle of sequins, etc.

 

One fabric, two possibilities, a fashion equation that adds up to magical results: feeling both good and beautiful.
