Ready-to-wear S/S 2016: fabrics from Lanificio Paoletti on the catwalks for the womenswear collections
Which will be the fabrics of the 2016 ready-to-wear spring summer?
Lanificio Paoletti’s summer tweed on the catwalk for the 2016 spring/summer ready-to-wear: rustic bases with sparkling inserts, contrasts between unbleached and synthetic yarns, from maxi motifs to ton-sur-ton micro-weavings.
Alber Elbaz breaks the fluidity of the surfaces of Lanvin’s 2016 spring summer/collection with a summer tweed designed and realized for him by the Paoletti woolen mill.
The texture completes the upper part of an outfit characterized by oversize volumes and fringed finishing touches, enhancing its grunge character. The outer layer is made wavy by the variety of yarns that compose it. Untreated and pearlescent tubulars move freely among the weavings, crossed by a twisted silk warp with golden lamé and black chenille inserts.
The womenswear collection Eleventy introduces a revisitation of the woman summer jacket as a layer of the high-end sportive look.
Soft effects, typical of the no-logo style of the Milanese brand, concretize in imperceptible ton-sur-ton micro-weavings characterized by a neutral palette, and combining see-through tubulars and twisted yarns in delicate material surfaces.
After studying with Jean-Paul Gaultier and Azzedine Alaïa, Sophie Theallet launched her own brand in 2007 and for the 2016 ready-to-wear summer collection, she takes inspiration from Africa.
Designer uses Paoletti’s woolen mill macro pinstripe, in the green and blue shades. The cotton, chain twisted and woven, confers a faded aspect to the drawing, the twill expresses its original character, recalling the canvas from which the first jeans were born.
