Angelo Figus explains: “This edition’s Spazio Ricerca is a sort of extension of material and the way it can be applied to the twenty-four hours that make up each day of our lives. With H24 we wanted to embrace a trend that is very strong in the yarn mills: the desire to extend the applicability of their products to new market segments that have great potential. Examples of this trend include the use of tech fibers for formal wear and natural fibers for technical clothing."
The day’s 24 hours are divided into 4 macro-themes, with 4 color charts inspired by the light of 4 times of the day:
Inspired by the colors of a winter morning. This is the theme of awakening. It is a dynamic, active theme that focuses on technical clothing in strictly natural fibers.
Inspired by the colors of a foggy winter afternoon. This is the theme of on-the-job concentration, performance and efficiency that focuses on technical fibers - typically used for sports clothing – for formal and dressy wear.
Inspired by the colors of a winter sunset and the evening. This is the theme of thought, affection and joy. Coming home – and a focus on furnishing fabrics that inspire casual yet rich-looking knits.
Inspired by the colors of a starry winter night. This is the theme of recovery, of restoring energy, and “repairing” ourselves. But is also the theme of dreams and love. It focuses on every possible aspect of knitted home- and intimate apparel: from the least formal sleepwear to the richest lace.
