At the ongoing Première Vision in Paris, Italian fashion fabrics producer Miroglio Textile is showing a new spring-summer 2017 collection in Hall 5, stall no. A-26/B-25.
A Miroglio press release informed that there are seven themes for the spring-summer 2017 collection including 'Blue Décor', a fresh reinterpretation of the classic summer mood.
“The inspiration comes from Mediterranean ceramics, from the Amalfi Coast to Lisbon via Marrakech,” the company said.
The base materials are predominantly natural in origin like viscose, silk and cotton voile enhanced with latest generation digital printing.
The collection features coloured weaves evoking tribal Africa blended with romantic motifs inspired by the ancient herbariums preserved in the Miroglio historical archive.
According to Miroglio, hand-painted water colour jungles bring the tropical theme to life, whilst the black and white combination is reinvented with micro-patterns creating the effect of filigree gold.
When it comes to fabrics, Miroglio Textile added that it is one of the pioneers in the printing of Dumfries, a structured satin ideal for 50's-style skirts and dresses.
“Bright and vibrant colours add charisma to the slubby viscose knitted fabric,” the fashion fabrics producer added.
Constant investment to deliver an increasingly ecologically sustainable printing method and a project dedicated to the importance of heritage, are the two objectives for Miroglio Textile in 2016.
Founded in Alba in 1947, the company has recently launched a project to revisit and promote its historical archive.
This will result in the creation of a large digital archive which will be complemented by exhibition and museum spaces at the firm's headquarters in Alba.
In terms of production, investments will continue in the two Piedmont-based factories which print over 50 million metres per year.
“On one hand, we are revisiting our heritage, transferring the essence of who we are and the roots of our know-how to our clients," Giuseppe Miroglio, chairman of Miroglio Textile said.
“On the other we are planning for the future with a strong focus on innovation and sustainability,” he added. (AR)
