FIBRES TO THE TEST
The 92nd edition of Pitti Immagine Filati was the occasion for the presentation of the Evolution Knit collection by Vittorio Branchizio, creative director of Shima Seiki Italia, at the stand of the Japanese company.
The 12 garments of the capsule collection exploit VB's material expertise and focus on experimentation, the precision and technology of Shima Seiki machines, and the technical characteristics of the different fibres used.
In the coat presented here, different yarns such as silk, elastomer, polyamide and cashmere have been combined with merino wool.
- MERINO WOOL 2/60
- SILK 2/80
- BLEND 1/25000 CASHMERE 75% SILK 25%
- RECYCLED POLYAMIDE 70/2
- ELASTIC YARN - EXTÉ 2.7 SOFT by MIC
The bouclé coat was produced using a floating jacquard technique in three colours, creating a shaped garment with taping. Despite the calibre of the SRY 183 LPSC 16G machine - fineness 16 - from Shima Seiki, and the different yarns used, the sample is compact and full-bodied. To enhance the aesthetic appearance of this exterior coat, the Casentino treatment was used.
The outside and inside of the garment have been joined with a double technique using EXTÉ 2.7 SOFT elastic yarn - polyamide-coated elastomer, coloured, made in Italy, characterised by a soft hand, high elasticity and excellent shrinkage properties.
