The fabric collection presented by Canepa SpA at the February 2018 edition of Première Vision, the French trade fair presenting international innovations and textile trends, was dedicated to environmental sustainability. The company showcased its patent SavetheWater Kitotex®, whose manufacturing process was tailored to minimise its impact on the environmental by reducing the use of toxic substances, energy and water consumption in all the production process.
The new pre-collection S/S 2019 Canepa textile is eco-friendly, ‘ECO comfort’, flexibly destined to man and woman, suitable to be used in any stylistic pattern, through an innovative ecological dyeing. Prints and jacquards of unlimited chromatic variety are harmoniously developed in precious and imaginative top of the range Made in Italy collections, with a creativity that Canepa have been developing since 1966.
The new Canepa collections include other textiles in cotton made as per Global Organic Textile Standards (GOTS) certification requirements. Flowery, geometrical and false uni fabrics dominate S/S 2019 Canepa collection, pastel shades mix up with more energetic and intense tones, designed for a woman who craves innovation and a romantic mood.
Optical solutions and black and white geometries open the Spring season with light matelassé and fil coupé textiles, taking inspiration from flowers, together with brocades in romantic shades of colours such as antique rose, London grey, pastel blue and light yellow. As summer comes, tones become more intense, in the development of collection storytelling. Patterns become more abstract and shapes more irregular, the vision turns from romanticism to a journey in the hyperspace, colours appear almost unreal, taken to the most extreme tones. The new pre-collection synthetises the suggestions of new style tendencies, translated into textiles connecting a new romantic classicism, a return to minimalism and a strong desire for future and technology.
