CHARM AND FUNCTIONALITY FOR CONTEMPORARY LIFESTYLES

Lanificio Zignone presents their S/S 2019 collection with an innovative design and performance: high-quality fabrics, elegant and dynamic like the men they are thought for. The event focuses on sustainability and it is a chance to illustrate the mill’s commitment to conscious water use.

Contemporary elegance is created by intertwining: new trends with advanced performance, attention to detail with responsible production. With its fabrics for the spring/summer 2019 collection, Zignone continues its research into uniting the best traditions from Biella with future requirements in terms of style, performance and also attention to sustainability. The mill’s collection is aimed at brands that intend to create refined and functional garments by proposing new technological and creative solutions, such as greater elasticity and impermeability or the study of original three-dimensional designs.

From 6th to the 8th of February at Milano Unica, expect to experience first-hand this style and business vision in an exhibition dedicated to water, a vital element in the history of Biella and a focal point of Zignone’s environmental-friendly activities.

THE A/W 18-19 COLLECTION, Finest Italian Wool Fabrics

THE A/W 18-19 COLLECTION

In the new collection, contemporary elegance fuses with innovative materials to create fabrics with a new concept of style. Movement is the keyword for stylistic exploration focusing on suits with three-dimensional patterns and weaves, breaking with the past. A new look to win over the business traveller seeking clothing which unites originality and excellent performance.  To demonstrate it are new pinstripes on classic suits, novel patterns and piece-embroidered fabric for jackets. Stretch textiles are in the limelight for the F/W 2018-19 collection, in particular for the Active range, which is given new life thanks to the unprecedented comfort of Lycra.  Jaspé wool sets the suits apart, while flocking gives the fabrics a velvet-like feel.  The focus on micro-effects is coloured by a palette which spans from reds and oranges, in warm shades of bronze, to must-have blue variants, petrol tones in particular. The collection wouldn’t be complete without Jacquard-weave fabrics for cashmere blend jackets, while wool and silk tweed is enriched by colourful inserts.

TRADITIONAL FABRICS AND CONTEMPORARY MATERIALS IN ORIGINAL COMBINATIONS, Finest Italian Wool Fabrics

TRADITIONAL FABRICS AND CONTEMPORARY MATERIALS IN ORIGINAL COMBINATIONS

A brand new season, a different mood. The 2018 Spring-Summer collection caters to the demands of a continuously evolving market in an increasingly creative manner. Experimentation, the keyword of our design research, targets modern comfort: the suit as a raw material that sculpts the frame, fabrics that conform to the body following its movement in a context where quality blends in with creativity through unexpected combinations. From the hot foil printing on a wool polyester base for formal wear, to the creation of patterned weaves for everyday use. The high-performance characteristics of the tailoring collection Super 150’s is enhanced by E-Motion natural stretch finishing. A new concept in textural structure comes to life: Lycra is being blended with natural fibres or wool, where composition and patterns create a 3D effect revolutionizing the perception of formal ware. Accuracy and creativity in jacquard for classic cut suits and a combination of natural fibres such as wool, cotton and linen for the summer collection. Fabrics may be personalized in an infinite colour palette, exploring new Italian style frontiers. The details that make the difference: bouclé and small loops enrich clothing of refined elegance. An artisanal approach is what links the different aspects of a collection, a choice of yarn blends such as the new jaspé, very similar in aspect to the piece dyed finishing.

NEW LOCATION, NEW DESIGN.

In occasion of the relocation of Milano Unica, Lanificio Zignone revamped its exhibition stand design. The new space reflects the ‘contemporary classic’ approach the company has chosen to peruse as a concept throughout its various communication tools.

The central area was dedicated to the finished garments that hung gracefully on made-to-measure asymmetric wooden racks. Every desk featured a different monochrome illustration by the artist Jins. The less formal area was dedicated to a co-branding project with Rollor Technology® and to the company’s social media activity #feelzignone. Clients were also invited to relax in a seating area dedicated to Italian delicacies such as wine and cheese. All elements within the stand have been design and made to measure for Lanificio Zignone.
