Inseta explores a trilogy of themes – Sacred, Profane and Conceptual – to find new inspirations for its AW1920 pre-collection. Contemporary artistry thrives in a range of wool, viscose, silk and polyester wovens, for cutting-edge jacket, coat, shirt and dress weights.
The Tuscany-based mill is turning to plays on engineering for fabrics with a finely restrained extravagance. The effortless fabrics of the “Sacred” range are given a more luxurious profile through finishes boasting Italian craftsmanship. “Profane” achieves an upbeat edginess through the use of singular yarns, with custom fibre blends and unconventional twists. “Conceptual” comprises distinct fancies featuring a blend of creativity and experimentation.
Perfectly aligned with the needs of designers’ seeking fabrics that are original yet easy to wear everyday, this comprehensive pre-collection offers fabrics comprising both newly restyled basics and woollens with surface interest, along with prints and jacquards.
Four takeaways from Inseta’s AW1920 pre-collection:
- Fibres: cotton with a silky handle, wool as lofty as viscose, wool/cotton blends, fluid to weighty viscose, elegant to dense polyester
- Textiles: woollen jacket and coat weights, yarn-dyed cotton-silk shirtings and dress weights, combed wools, jacquards, doubles
- Finishings: “Profane” features 100% organic-dyed wool, “Conceptual” experiments with unusual print techniques and special finishings
- Weights: fabric volume increases while fabric weight decreases
