Fabrics AW2122 / Essentials: Tops and shirts

The season’s fabric highlights for the tailored and fluid markets: all silhouettes, whether sharply cut, relaxed, softly flowing or highly constructed. Key woolen, cottony, linen, and synthetic products for knit or woven tops and shirts.

[one_half][/one_half][one_half_last]Comfort and sophistication
Tee-shirt and sweatshirt knits, casual and more formal shirtings move to versions with more elaborate compositions and constructions.
The new sweat looks verge on citywear, dipping into its chicer looks, denser handles and higher-quality fiber blends.
Knits are puffy to the extreme, or grow fluffy, while shirts become warmer and more sophisticated thanks to the use of wool and brushed finishings.
Shirting visuals seize on the warm wave with flannelled, chiné, and blurred aspects.
Winter checks in restrained colorways are revitalized, to energize overshirts and liven up the city universe.[/one_half_last]

Qualities intended for sweatshirts are no longer limited to simple fleeces. Faces are smoothed and backs are warmly fluffy. Interlocks and double jerseys that are both compact and supple are elaborated in products inspired by citywear. New silhouettes successfully balance coziness and chic, as in cropped trousers coordinated with suit-style jackets. Knits pump up the volume, with inflated doubles, padded effects, and soft jacquards that add even more fantasy to traditional hoodies and indoor jackets. An interplay of topstitching on quiltings and the use of circular knits help evolve puffer jackets in new directions.<iframe src=”″ width=”960″ height=”540″ frameborder=”0″ allow=”autoplay; fullscreen” allowfullscreen></iframe> Exhibitors: Fordiani Riccardo & C, Tiba Tricot, RDD, Produce Sinapsi, Utenos Trikotazas, Vilartex, Eusebio, Cotton Trend, RDD, Gülle Tekstil, Utenos Trikotazas, Anbievolution.

Fluffy knits
Natural fabrics including wools, alpacas and cashmeres are broken down in plains and semi plains and combined with cotton and other natural fibers, or artificial fibers, for cozy materials with a high added-value. Jerseys and double knits in tee-shirt and polo weights are explored for menswear and womenswear, for tops with enhanced tactile qualities. Softness and seductive appeal join forces in velour knits, in a feminine version with fluid and lustrous panne velour, and a relaxed version with matte aspects, ribbed effects and sophisticated terries.<iframe src=”″ width=”960″ height=”540″ frameborder=”0″ allow=”autoplay; fullscreen” allowfullscreen></iframe> Exhibitors: Kanemasa Knitting, Isil Tekstil, Vilartex, Fantasie Tricot, Anbievolution, Isil Tekstil, Kanemasa Knitting, Gülle Tekstil, Catland, Vilartex, Anbievolution.

Shirting – Wooly warmth
Fine shirting cottons are blended with wool to obtain subtly brushed surfaces perfect for casual, slightly oversized cuts. For more formal shirts, wool slips in discreetly, giving warmth to the inside while respecting neat, decided cottony visuals.<iframe src=”″ width=”960″ height=”540″ frameborder=”0″ allow=”autoplay; fullscreen” allowfullscreen></iframe> Exhibitors: Tan Tekstil, Showa, Soktas Tekstil, Texser – Textil De Serzedelo, Fabrica De Tecidos Vilarinho, Ruentex Industries.

Shirting – Luminous checks
Sous une apparente simplicité, les carreaux cherchent à sortir du lot et à exprimer leur différence avec conviction. Les couleurs sont volontiers vibrantes, des lignes jaunes, qui viennent perturber un clan simplifié à l’extrême. Parfois, le dessin sort du cadre et opère un jeu de croisements multiples et de proportions exagérées, perturbant la perception.<iframe src=”″ width=”960″ height=”540″ frameborder=”0″ allow=”autoplay; fullscreen” allowfullscreen></iframe> Exhibitors: Tessitura Di Albizzate, Sidogras, Ruentex Industries, Sidogras, Ruentex Industries, Kaynak, Texser – Textil De Serzedelo.

Shirting – Blurry chinés
Referencing flannels transposed in cotton versions, chinés and throwns liven-up plains and yarn-dyed patterns. Checks with vibrating patterns, blurred in some areas, are envisioned in muted and sophisticated colorways, and lend a certain elegance to the shape of full-cut overshirts for both men and women. Materials perfect for creating a soothing and reassuring wardrobe, for a caring winter.<iframe src=”″ width=”960″ height=”540″ frameborder=”0″ allow=”autoplay; fullscreen” allowfullscreen></iframe> Exhibitors: Texser – Textil De Serzedelo, Showa, Tan Tekstil, Esenteks, TMG Textiles, Kipas Casual/Formal/Shirting, Tan Tekstil, La Linea.
