CASUAL ELEGANCE

The contrast of fibers and colors in the Emotional Technologies capsule by VB

RENEWED COLLABORATION

The 90th edition of Pitti Filati - Reflections, held at the Stazione Leopolda in Florence from 2 to 4 February 2022 - hosted the collections of the most important Italian and international spinning mills, together with the new challenges and trends present in the Spazio Ricerca.

For the second time in a row, Manifattura Italiana Cucirini collaborated with Shima Seiki Italia in the creation of the capsule collection conceived by SSI Art Director Vittorio Branchizio.

The Emotional Technologies collection, born from the genius of VB, is characterized by a modern look, colors and design inspired by space nebulae and lunar landscapes. Each garment is made by exploiting the full potential of Shima machines, combining yarns and fibers of different origins to create new aesthetic effects and unexpected tactile sensations.

THE YARN AND MACHINES OF THE MAXI KNIT DRESS

Among the 12 outfits that make up the capsule, there is a maxi knit dress, designed to elegantly embrace the female form. This garment was made with wool, nylon and polyester yarns. MIC supplied the ELAN 10 yarn - a textured yarn, often used in the garment making process in the knitting of edging such as collars and cuffs, to give comfort and silkiness to the touch - that Vittorio Branchizio included in the design of the garment.

The use of MIC's ELAN 10 yarn, compared to other yarns, was dictated by its smoothness and usability in the machine, by the bulkiness of the fiber, which gives a silky and soft touch to the finished product, and by its composition: it is in fact 100% polyester, which in combination with wool creates a strong contrast of color and brightness.

We can notice the liveliness of the ELAN yarn in the blue color of the garment, which challenges the opacity of the black wool, melted with mastery using the machine Shima N.SVR123IPSC 18G, the same used for the high definition T-SHIRT of the same collection.


ELAN is used for its characteristics of softness and smoothness in all applications in contact with the skin, for its soft hand. ELAN is a 100% polyester also available in the recycled version certified ELAN GRS. For a hand similar to silk, whether it is required for an overlocker, knitting and edging in classic clothing, sportswear, cycling or others, the MICRO yarn is available, or in the recycled polyester variant certified MICRO GRS. Upon request, each yarn can be supplied with antibacterial treatment to ensure greater safety against external pathogens and bad odors.
