Albini's A/W 2013-14 trends to inspire shirtmakers

24
Sep '12
Albini Group presents A/W 2013-14 trends. Albini, Thomas Mason, David & John Anderson and Albiate 1830 present suggestions of colours, yarns, bases, prints, patterns for fabrics that will inspire shirtmakers, specialised tailors and fashion designers for Autumn-Winter 2013-14. 

Cotonificio Albini: a collection on the move 

Yarns, textures and finishes are the key to a collection of fabrics 'on the move'. Slub yarn, irregular touch, mélange, mouliné, nubby, wool and silk mélange, give life to fabrics moved in touch and sight. The insertion of yarns with more body within lightweight bases creates fabrics with more texture. Flannel and velvet are subjected to faded finishes and treatments, for an irregular effect, not homogeneous. 'Flanellino', the new flannel in linen, offers a luxury version of the fabric ideal for sport shirts. Smooth bases are interspersed with dobby, for an effect of three-dimensional movement. 
 
Through various styles, Classic, Informalist, Sport and Urban, the colours range from classic tailored black, navy, light blue, brightened by mélange shades, to the colours of the English Autumn – Bordeaux, saffron, brown, tobacco, the palette of camouflage, from pastel sugar paper, purple, crimson, mustard, periwinkle, until the absolute dark ebony, purple, petrol, gunmetal. 
 
The theme of 'drapery', with designs commonly used on jackets, is also proposed in the fabric for shirts both in classical and in sports.
 
The sophisticated Piuminofeeling, fabric made of yarn 100/1-120/1 of Giza 87 - the fine Egyptian cotton, grown exclusively in particular climatic conditions along the Nile and the fertile region of its Delta, very silky to the touch and immutable - preserves its iconic status of the most classic and sought after fabric of Cotonificio Albini. 
 
Thomas Mason: freedom in Colour 
Single colour, multicolour, tartan: these are the themes around which the collection with the DNA 100% British Thomas Mason has been developed . The lowest common denominator, the colour becomes the true language of expression of the brand. Each collection of Thomas Mason reveals new bases, themes and patterns in the largest possible number of colour options, for the pleasure of its connoisseurs who love windowpane checks, chalk stripes, asymmetric Prince of Wales checks and Scottish tartan. 
 
The monochromatic theme develops through fancy English classics (micro-stripes or Bengal stripes, large or small checks and Prince of Wales) interpreted on an infinite chromatic scale,from vibrant colours (such as yellow, green and purple), pastel, greyed off and colonial colours giving rise to fabrics which sometimes become more precious with the use of cashmere.
