Gruppocinque unveils S/S 17 fabric collection
Gruppocinque has launched two Spring-Summer 2017 lines complementary to its Autumn-Winter 16/17 collection, with a wide-ranging commercial and creative strategy based on creative ability.
The Gruppocinque range is made up of structures, textures and graphics blended in a colour scheme that unites yarns, weaves and proportions that are seasonally on point in appearance and composition.
“The range is both casual and sports in feel, mixed with a more formal vibe that includes prints with jacquard,” a Gruppocinque press release informed.
Jacquard especially is a great historical strong point for Gruppocinque, which always enjoys developing a range of technical solutions and looks playing with a complex variety of base qualities including print.
“This is a trend-setting technique, which offers the fashion world something new to work on in order to encourage the best kind of creativity from their customer stylists and brands,” it said.
The first theme of the season is Ethereal with designs that are structured, precious, yet everyday, cutting-edge, sophisticated and three-dimensional, but also sensual, refined and seductive.
The second theme is Opulence which evokes nocturnal tropical scenes with exotic hints and influences made with a rich mix of techniques.
The third theme is Urbane, a collection that is still structured but light, with natural and sober colours for more raw textures but with a fluid feel.
“It references intimate scenes in contrast with curious suburban realities and adding value of this line is the smarter responsible Newlife fibre,” Gruppocinque added.
Another theme; Swing is low key, never ostentatious, and the fabrics performance element offers real and tangible advantages like protection, lightness, freedom of movement, as well as elegance and uniqueness.
“All these characteristics let the fabrics do the work, interpreting a versatile wardrobe that can shift from contemporary everyday wear to moments of glamour, but always giving value with values,” the company noted.
Hot looks for the spring summer '17 season include fashion forward jacquards with two-layer micro-membranes in polyamide yarn dye or piece dyed fabrics, or in cotton and cotton-polyamide blends.
While always delivering the perfect feel and visual optic, this line's forte is the luminosity and sheen you get from the particular fibre selection.
All of these dynamic looks are unique and very appropriate for creating sporty, fashionable and metropolitan looks with great performance in wind and rain resistance, and can also be heat welded and laser-cut.
There are cotton doubles and double fabrics with ultra-light microfibres producing three-layers but still maintaining a super-light weight and aesthetic.
“The search for comfort has now also produced elastic and feather light fabrics in weft and warp that ensure perfect wearability and easy maintenance,” Gruppocinque noted. (AR)
