Spring Summer 2018
A contemporary archive
A journey through time
A Spring / Summer 2018 collection that starts from the reinterpretation of the “Granny’s Heritage” that refers to the blouses and outfits that still today can be discovered in the trunk of a chic and sophisticated grandmother. The wonderful company archives of the 1950s and 1960s inspired Albini donna’s stylistic team to create a collection of modern and contemporary fabrics, set against the background of strong retro design.
A collection that amazes
Starting from the Puffy, “quilted” fabrics, which are characterised by a relief aspect that highlights the weaving structures. Generally developed in several weights, this season sees them in two versions: a lighter version, suitable for creating cool and romantic shirts in the delicate colours of light blue, pink and yellow. The other one, more heavy and structured, is perfect for very feminine summer dresses offered in both solid colours and stripes, in summer tones of white, light blue and navy.
There is also a proposal of colour-woven fabrics in delicate or nautical colours, linen oxford in intense colours, stretch silk in feminine or darker shades and silk shantung muslin. The pure cotton poplin ranges from classic blues to the stripes in summery fresh colours both bicolour and multicoloured, while the macro-gingham is dressed in bright colours and enriched with small fringes in fil coupé.
Innovations that look to the past with the unmistakable style of Albini donna.
For a more sporty look, the theme is “Canovaccio”, fabrics woven in linen blends inspired by the world of kitchen rags, but reinterpreted in a casual-chic version and also illuminated with inserts of lurex. Finally the floral theme, which plays a very important role, are the fabrics made with embroidery, large coloured jacquards or laminated prints.
What goes around comes around
Perhaps not everyone knows that Albini in the 1960s also produced fabrics for making classic handkerchiefs. These original patterns, which were discovered in the company’s archives, have been reinterpreted in a modern way to create original check fantasies, fabrics with placed stripes on fresh quality bases in cotton / linen, embellished with lurex inserts.
