Techno-Luxury: fine weaves with a futuristic soul

Techno-Luxury, the installation/event by designer Angelo Figus, is coming to Spazio Ricerca, an experimental laboratory for Pitti Filati: a cathedral of colour, 15 metres high, which will open up vast creative scenarios, and offer a new way of understanding fashion, luxury and performance. The protagonist is the Italian excellence of the warp-knit, circular-knit stretch fabric, which finds its main exponents in the Carvico and Jersey Lomellina group.
 
“The future is increasingly hybrid,” explains Figus. “In the yarn industry, we are experimenting with a tendency to combine noble fibres, such as cashmere, with polyamide, within the same garment. This work, which visitors can enter for a real chromo-experience, demonstrates the potential that can emerge from this encounter.”
 
The installation includes 12 garments that represent the same number of hypotheses of blends of luxury yarns and polyamide, and that represent an invitation to collaborate, aimed at the best technical material companies.
 

The layout of the space is by Alessandro Moradei, with the collaboration of Elena Mari and Nicola Miller.
