Gruppocinque debuts four 'Metropolitan' looks this season
Sep '15
This season, a new cool aesthetic emerges from a true Italian lifestyle taste for modern living, through four strong 'Metropolitan' looks from Gruppocinque.

This has been done through colour accents on a modulated neutral ground, and a smart contemporary interpretation of nature re-imagined through a new mix of colours, textures and pattern.

According to a Gruppocinque press release, the company has invested even more resources and talent to give inspiration to its customers through a new 360 degree service.

This has also been done through a fully versatile and responsive process; one that amplifies a natural innovation culture to create beautiful, stylish and contemporary Italian textile design, honed and edited to inspire every market desire.

“Thanks to this new and uniquely skilled team that has creativity, technical smarts and eco-responsible design at its heart, Gruppocinque has driven its own fabric-to-fashion language to deliver quality and perfection,” it said.

Under the Gruppocinque label where colour is king, and the fabrics have the heartbeat of the season at their core, for autumn 16/17, it has introduced new wool and silk combinations with Newlife.

These are available in textures, double cloths, reversibles, astrakhan, faux knit structures, fleece effect finishes mix with geometric jacquards and micro patterned silk blends.

“At the same time, tessellated marocains and classic checked settings create movement and drama,” the Italian fashion fabrics producer informed.

The second, completely contrasting range is a new, super-slick, genderless technical concept called Swing.

Gruppocinque has done technical research in new finishes, touches and skin-feel that have been given an unusual optic through unique yarn dye combinations and new structures.

It further added that one will forget the common plainness of piece dyed fabrics and instead enjoy a new and subversive 3D reflective subtlety created through a balanced contrast of yarns, lusters and colours.

“Using ultra-fine nylons with super-light cottons and silks, new super-sophisticated effects emerge, that are at once unique, subtle and rich,” Gruppocinque observed.

Gruppocinque will be showcasing these collections at the upcoming Milano Unica, Premiere Vision Paris and Tokyo Forum. (AR)
