Italtex: Soft and Double-Face Fabrics for Womenswear - A/W 2017/18
today Nov 3, 2016
In womenswear softness is expressed by warm brushed long hair mohair, fine and coarse boucle’ and fancy yarns in both woven and knit qualities enveloping rich wool mixtures and flannellised cottons, or else by woven and knitted felts, two-tone felt plains and barely visible plaids in milled flannel. Therefore, cocooning wool coat is one of the key words of the season.
Double face coatings and bondings include a large variety of solutions, from the classic elegant two-side plains to the interpretations with patterned face or reverse, in solid or mixture yarns. Alongside the weave effect doubles come the outstanding coated and bonded interpretations where light coatings add just a hint of colour, and film coatings change the surface into a plastic, varnish image very much in the mood of the moment.
Bonded layers can be fabrics of the same kind, like woven with woven, jersey with jersey, or also mixed. Often they contain a protective inside layer conferring a neoprene look for fashion as well as performance purposes.
