No need to renounce comfort in a season that so successfully balances a twin desire for well-being and allure. In response to this fundamental requirement, fabrics and knits for dresses and tops showcase a signature charm and relaxed style. Suppleness is silky, with refined product developments that facilitate ease. Bordering on athleisure, knits with enrobing handles feature hybrids of natural and artificial fibers, flourishing in a range of new variations. For dresses, a comforting warmth emerges, with lightly puffy wool blends. In a more sophisticated spirit, a discreet glamour shines through, with delicately shimmering fabrics. Whether asymmetrical, or slit and cut close to the body, shapes brilliantly balance elegance and sensuality.[/one_half_last]

Silky suppleness
Perfectly lustrous satins, diagonals and ottomans focus on suppleness, with denser weights and ease-enhancing stretch. Runny, poised between silkies and suitings, they are interpreted in body-hugging and ultra-feminine tops or dresses, in forthright and dynamic colorways, for a well cadenced and confident appeal.<iframe src=”″ width=”960″ height=”540″ frameborder=”0″ allow=”autoplay; fullscreen” allowfullscreen></iframe> Exhibitors: Philea, Ezgi Tekstil, Les Tissages Perrin, Mandarin, Clerici Tessuto & C, Delta Tex, Utenos Trikotazas, Dilek Tekstil.

Wooly lightness
Airy, lightly washed woolen fabrics display a warmly casual look. Softly moving surfaces enrich yarn-dyed patterns with relaxed textures. Checks traditionally destined for menswear are given a more feminine dimension with reworked colorways, weights and finishings, to create products that lean to unisex.<iframe src=”″ width=”960″ height=”540″ frameborder=”0″ allow=”autoplay; fullscreen” allowfullscreen></iframe> Exhibitors: Fabrica Tessuti, Can Tekstil, Manifattura Tessile Pierozzi, Fabrica Tessuti, Sidogras, Paulo De Oliveira, Zanieri Luigi.

Sheathing knits
Knits flaunting a satiny elegance embrace comfort, thanks to double jerseys, fleeces and interlocks that are simultaneously smooth, dense and soft. Viscose and lyocell blends readily combine with elastane, for full, smooth handles. Hybrid materials perfect for second-skin dresses or tops create new crosses of athleisure and evening wear.<iframe src=”″ width=”960″ height=”540″ frameborder=”0″ allow=”autoplay; fullscreen” allowfullscreen></iframe> Exhibitors: Anbievolution, Fantasie Tricot, Isil Tekstil, Cotton Trend, Gamateks Tekstil, Isil Tekstil, Dilek Tekstil.

Delicate shimmers
Tops and dresses will discreetly shine, thanks to surfaces that bet on a preciously seductive appeal striking both a confidential and glamorous note. Fine silks and laces enlivened with shimmering reflections and delicate metallic yarns are inserted deep within fabrics to illuminate textures. Tulles and voiles are embellished with subtle iridescent reflections.<iframe src=”″ width=”960″ height=”540″ frameborder=”0″ allow=”autoplay; fullscreen” allowfullscreen></iframe> Exhibitors: Tissages Denis & Fils, Goutarel, Potencier Broderies, Bucol, Cavalleri, L’atelier Marey, Taiana, Nilba Tekstil.
