Walter Van Beirendonck: “Woest”
Walter Van Beirendonck’s 2016/2017 Autumn-Winter collection features a “wild” style that filters in mens jacket’s tailor cut. Raging colours were carefully introduced starting from the mixing stage. This gives the design its bright blended colours in soft fibre with a lambswool base. Double weave.
1970s Passamenterie for Haider Ackermann
Haider Ackermann has been working together with Paoletti on exclusive woolen cloths. He is a member of the selection panel for the Woolmark International Prize awarded during the event Pitti Immagine Uomo 89.
The length of the wool and Lurex coat is obtained with a single fabric cut while geometric variations can be achieved by analysing the design ratio without jacquard looms.
A pressed finishing has been applied to this alpaca and mohair bouclé coat. This gives the cloth that robustness with no effect on surface softness. The inside of the lapel is decorated with stunning geometric designs made with golden and silver palettes on a pure wool base.
