CLERICI TESSUTO Collection
The research starts from the raw material that is selected, certified and meets sustainability and traceability criteria. The effect is natural and dry-handed; the linen and silk mix combine sustainability with the quality level characteristic of the Clerici Fabric production.
The tussah silk “Red Eri”, made from a silkworm that came out of the cocoon and therefore not sacrificed for the realization of the yarn, has naturally orange hue because the diet of the worm is made with fig leaves, thus obtaining a typical shade referred to as “Ghandi’s silk.”
A discontinuous thread produced with a GOTS certified silk and linen mix, obtains materials with an irregular surface, enhancing its preciousness through inserts of metal wires and golden lurex.
The 100% bio-based EVOH nylon produced by using the castor oil plant generates a package of solid colors group with a weaving base characterized by movement. The production of yarn requires little water for cultivation and is not used for animal feed, effectively widening the ethical theme of sustainability production.
Alongside naturalness, a lightness theme has been developed with fil coupe techniques produced on a transparent and impalpable organza base. Romantic linen and silk mix has a vivid seersucker effect.
In the solid colours section, the core of the collection – always made of pure silk or mixed linen silk and cotton silk – the naturalness is expressed through relief textures and tactile effects on a palette of white, ivory, hemp, lilac, pink and soft green juxtaposed with unexpected fluorescent hues.
Five different themes interpret the double soul, refined and natural of the textile trends for the 2021 season.
Prints and jacquards are divided into two main trends, one more materic and natural, where the linen/silk, cotton/silk and linen/cotton mixtures offer subtly rustic moving surfaces and effects, and a second one, lighter and dedicated to eveningwear, enlighted by bright yarns such as lurex and refined fil coupe techniques.
The themes developed in the collection are the romantic FLOREALE swinging between botanical and the Victorian style, ANIMALIER where the natural livery of the animals is modified by digital reworkings, ETNICO with references between Africa and Mexico with decisive colors and patterns, TROPICALE where rich foliage and zoological references have been treated by in-house illustrators and last but not least a TIE&DYE theme with delavè and washed down
colors, used as a vintage inspired base for printed patterns.
The part of the united is defined by an evening theme with inserts of lurex yarn and metallic effects that illuminates fabrics suitable for the evening and party dresses.
Lightness is pivotal: the collection merging Clerici Tessuto technical innovations and artistic excellence is airy and transparent, both in the prints and in the jacquard sections where the funds are in silk organza or georgette.
Embossed features and fil coupé techniques create movement and 3D effects that refract the light. Raw effects with raffia, a very natural and full-bodied material, plays in contrast of full VS empty with a transparent base. In the evening proposal, the shiny effect is accentuated with the insertions of metallic yarns and lamé. Embossed lurex and three-dimensional are transformed into metallic mesh effects.
In the printed section, the research focuses on the applications of thick pigments on more full-bodied bases in cotton and linen. The silk selection also opens in the structure with a series of aerial and perforated organza gauze. The designs are mostly floral romantic or geometric in shape, detailed and pictorial.
TEX HOMME Collection
Clerici Tessuto Men’s Collection has been developed through innovative processes and finishings over new fabrics and yarns. A blend of wool and cashmere with the botanical fiber Tencel® create lightweight fabrics for jackets with extraordinary fit features, to optimize performance. A trompe l’oeil print treatment with classic menswear patterns is the key to transform them into Prince of Wales, striped and check fabrics.
Natural and raw basis like cotton or linen blend with Lycra® originate fabrics in white and blue, like denim to be overprinted, patterns with folk tips and micro operated reveal structures in which texture is clearly visible through contrasting colours.
The jacquard fil coupé – created using specific techniques for haute couture fabrics – has been developed for elaborated bases, overprinted with different patterns for unexpected results, with irregular effects of rupture on cut or loose threads. Special finishing and coating open up the possibilities of use on trench coats, outerwear and accessories.
In the evening wear section, the focus is on silk blended with technical yarns for light refraction and contrasting effects: a pixelated pinstriped fabric looks asymmetrical and apparently random. Refined jacquard patterns like herringbone and damier, move the surface through light and shade.
The day palette is dominated by absolute white, shades of blue and neutrals. The evening is black and dark blue, with opacity gradients and interrupted by unexpected colours such as mint green and turquoise.
