At Italy’s Canepa, sustainable materials and novel constructions are used to lively effect in plains, prints and jacquards.
The Canepa mill is adding recycled polyester, cotton and regenerated wool yarns to its jacquard and brocade lines. A 100% GOTS certified jacquard is proposed in yarn-dyed mercerized silk and cotton. In this vein, the Lanery Collection illustrates a compendium of eco-responsible fibres (organic cotton, recycled polyester and nylon, vegetable dyes), technical performance (water-repellent and breathable fabrics) and luxury.
The 2019/20 winter collection cultivates ingenious connections between grounds and decoration. Jacquards boast cloqué effects and 3D reliefs. Precisely crafted triple layers are enlivened with fancy yarns. The nuances and lustre of Lurex set off the evening wear collections. The weaver targets unique developments via cut -yarns and quiltings with opaque or shiny aspects.
In prints, the grounds are technical and structured, with transparent membranes, tri-acetate aspects, double weaves. The contrast between motifs and their grounds (taffeta, velvet and duchesse) are accentuated.
The range of plains includes silks, heavy plain weaves and fluid viscose cady’s and satins. For scarves, contrasting colours are inserted in woollen grounds with a soft feel. Motifs feature simple designs, geometric shapes and Scotch plaids.
