Highlights for spinning and flatbed knitwear. Yarns for wovens, circular knits and flatbed knits. Creative stitch development and garment ideas for flatbed knitwear.
For Spring Summer 21, spinning and flatbed knit specialists are changing the game with a new sense of energy and commitment. Yarns and knit structures set fabrics in motion, know-hows masterfully evolve to favour versatile, more flexible uses, and compositions and production methods promote a shift to sustainability.
Simplicity in motion
Eco-responsibility pairs with an aesthetic approach targeting visual simplification and the quality and adaptability of materials. A new minimalist inspiration for multi-purpose garments, freed from constraints of time and gender. Knit structures favour versatile uses, with refined double-faces, little jacquards, micro-reliefs, ribs, and discreet openwork. Materials in osmosis with nature – organic cottons, hemp and linen. Micro-knop, finely snubbed, perfectly twisted and crêpe yarns. Recyclable or biodegradable compositions.
Skills in motion
An ambitious approach that aims to unite the functional features and seductive side of apparel. A union between authentic know-how and tech innovation. Shapes designed to reduce offcuts and manufacturing steps. Knits inspired by artisanal techniques, transfigured by technology. A modern take on recycling and upcycling that transforms a hand-knit spirit, a digital interpretation of the plant world. An economic approach to materials and processes. High-performing artificial or synthetic fibres with a lower chemical impact.
Surfaces in motion
A visual and tactile rally against uniformity. Dynamic and subtle solutions to the quest for differentiation, thanks to fluid knits, fluctuating surfaces and plays on texture. Undulating, mobile garments, enlivened by wavy placed transparencies, shimmers and reliefs. Stitch plays that explore pleats, wrinkles and vibrating shines and colours. Lively materials enriched with gleaming reflections and decorative irregularities. Crystalline or softly metallised yarns, shiny filaments, new space-dyes for fused colour effects, refreshing thrown and fancy yarns, chainette or terry style.
