Lanificio Zignone is the contemporary classic: a revisitation of the past through new styles and experimentation. The A/W 2016 collection expresses the different aspects of this production identity and does so with an innovation in the textile industry, fabrics with embroidered details designed for jackets. An evolution of the jacquard, making the finished garment more exclusive by including sophisticated details that recall craftsmanship. The research continues also within the high-end fabrics or the Zignone Collection, with an upgrade of the suit, which becomes more structured and dynamic. The jacquard and geometric effect, the textured background, structures that combine carded with combed yarns, can be seen throughout the whole Zignone collection used for light weight fabrics used in suits, as well as heavier weights used for jackets. The very fine wool, Super 130s on a sablè base, gives life to fabric with a tangible feel, with a contrasting and dotted effect, something unusual in micro-patterned tailored suits.
The same yarns used for making suits are woven in the classical jackets: Prince of Wales, houndstooth, herringbone, grisaille fabrics are updated to this season’s shades. Great attention is given to the colours in fabrics using mouliné yarns, which allow the creation of multiple coloured backgrounds and recalls the Cheviot, typical of the English country wear, however with a more subtle weight in line with the demands of the current market.
For the tailored suit collection, small jacquard designs have been proposed, achieved with comfort finishing: details that can be detected by observing the fabric closely, which gives that little extra that makes the difference. The A/W 2016 collection is more daring with colour, introducing tones that range from deep purple and very intense bottle and military green; grey is accompanied by burgundy, cognac, lavender and yellow. Blue remains and continues to be extremely fashionable with inserts of other tones.
