E-MOTION, EXCLUSIVE COMFORT THROUGH GENUINE ELASTICITY, A new generation of elegance

E-MOTION, EXCLUSIVE COMFORT THROUGH GENUINE ELASTICITY

Superb performance and a true sense of well-being. Even more dynamism from nature.
E-Motion combines unequalled flexibility and high-quality wools. The combination of technical properties and comfort is due to the Natural Stretch special treatment that offers fabrics elasticity without the use of synthetic materials. The garments made with E-Motion simultaneously offer superior fit, by adapting to our body movements, and the breathability expected of natural fibres to deliver increasingly advanced professional attire.
Genuine elegance is the result of a complex equilibrium made up of design, colours and production techniques. Faithful to the contemporary spirit of our mill, E-Motion balances simplicity and inspiration for a lively appearance.

Due to its extraordinary physical qualities, wool is still the most appreciated raw material in formalwear. The treatments developed for E-Motion further ennoble it, blending technology and the natural gift of the fabric’s textures.

RESPECT IS IN OUR NATURE, A new generation of elegance

RESPECT IS IN OUR NATURE

Raw materials, the territory, the people.

There is no contemporary elegance without a commitment towards the environment. The desire to develop functional fabrics designed for today’s pace of life is only realised when there is a dedication to produce in the most sustainable way for tomorrow’s generations. The activities of the mill covers the entire supply chain and begins well before work starts in the company’s plants. Wool is a biodegradable and recyclable material suitable for promoting a circular economy: Zignone only selects farms that have respect for animals and their freedom. Every phase of work is carried out with the utmost transparency, guaranteeing complete traceability of each individual lot and control over the substances used (in compliance with the strict ZDHC and GOTS standards). New machinery and optimised methods make it possible to limit CO2 emissions and reduce the mill’s water consumption by up to 0.05 m3 per meter of fabric for a lower environmental impact. Raw and untreated materials, natural resources and the land as well as staff and consumers are treated with great care. This commitment to monitor the entire supply chain has led Zignone to launch its own dedicated label, Green Trace, which will serve as a mark of quality for products that look to properly care for the environment.

A STORY OF MOVING SHADES: FABRICS WITH SPONTANEOUS DEPTH, A new generation of elegance

A STORY OF MOVING SHADES: FABRICS WITH SPONTANEOUS DEPTH

In the year of Zignone’s fiftieth anniversary, the fabric collection for autumn-winter of 2019 pays tribute to the dynamism that distinguishes the wool mill since its origins, bringing a new awareness to its idea of contemporary elegance.

Zignone relies on its entire repertoire of skills, focusing on exploring special shades and visual effects capable of captivating by giving fabric the impression, even at a distance, of being in relief.

The principal novelty is the play of shadows and tones, in which the interweaving of fancy yarns creates textures animated by subtle contrasts of light. The most distinctive fabrics offer elaborate designs, studied in the many variations between motif and background to give future garments the pleasing, three-dimensional vivacity we look for today.

The colours follow the same line in a study of shades and special tones.

The richness of fabrics that are attractive to the eye and touch drives Zignone in its work. The most complex processes can lead to an effortless refinement and the collection demonstrates this through a wide selection of creations achieved with jaspé and mouliné yarns, with knots and with a brushed wool-silk blend. Together with the designs, the depth in fabrics is enhanced, especially the fancy yarns and mixed weaves.

It’s a mix of techniques, precise details and an elegant weave. Thanks to the care for advanced finishing, A/W 2019 fabrics present an elegance with a lived-in character, with features that catch the eye, and thus continue to renew the dynamism of the range – a hallmark of the wool mill’s history.

THE A/W 18-19 COLLECTION, A new generation of elegance

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, A new generation of elegance

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.

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.
