The Wool Lab returns with S/S16 themes
Jan '15
The Wool Lab returns with two themes; Capri for menswear and Montecarlo for womenswear dedicated to the world of classical elegance for S/S16.

Capri is inspired by the Neapolitan tailoring tradition and the split suit is an expression of a refined and relaxed style.

It is made from 100 per cent Merino wool and also blended with other animal fibres such as silk, mohair and cashmere.

It is available in structures and patterns like hopsack, twill, checks, panama and in warm neutral, bordeaux, off-white and blue colours.

The Montecarlo theme gets its inspirations from the lifestyle seen through the streets of Monaco from women who are simply elegant, both in formal and informal occasions.

Here to the material used is 100 per cent wool and is also blended with silk, cotton, viscose or angora.

The structures and patterns include; Sablé, piquet, tone on tone jacquard and Chanel-like pattern and is available in pastels and neutral colours.

In addition to these formal themes, the concept of contrasts is well expressed by the strong colours matching an unexpected elegance, such as the one which can also be found in the theme, Sapeur.

Sapeur comes from La Sape, Société del Ambianceurs et des Personnes Élégantes, the roots of which are in Congo.

Born in the 70’s, the Sapeur trend was in response to the dictatorship that was imposed on the Congolese to dress with traditional and sober tunics.

The Sapeur movement diverged as much as possible from Western fashion style and its concept of men's elegance, fierce and carefully assembled stands out in contrast to the regular men's style.

The idea of contrasts is also expressed in the theme Technocasual, whereby the latest technical innovations in the world of wool fabrics are applied to the most classic lines for the garments.

Fabrics with technical treatments, such as the Plasma Treatment or fabrics lent by the sports/outdoors industry are used for formal garments, such as men's formal jackets or sweaters.

The Floral theme, a female look inspired by the stylisation of nature that gets its origins in the Art Nouveau style and Neo Trotter, a contemporary and young lifestyle defined by a practical wear with a fashionable touch, complete the presentation of the six trends for the Wool Lab S/S16.

Here too the creations have been made from 100 per cent wool and wool/cotton, wool/linen, wool/nylon blends.

It is available in check, panama, twill, denim look, pattern stripes, jacquard and mélange jersey for yarns and knitwear fabrics, which are resilient and resistant, but always in style.

After the exclusive launch at Pitti Uomo, The Wool Lab SS16 will be presented at the most important trade shows worldwide, as well as through The Woolmark Company's global network. (AR)
