Calabrian handloom tradition reinterpreted on organic yarns at Palazzo Spini Feroni: CANGIARI shows at the “Sustainable Thinking” exhibition, inaugurated on Friday 12 at Salvatore Ferragamo Museum in Florence.
Peonia Long Coat in Sustainable Fashion Rooms 2018: CANGIARI comes back to the exhibit in Cittadellarte - Fondazione Pistoletto with an iconic creation.
The coat has a traditional "A pitteja" design, an emblem of Calabrian handloom artistic heritage and its Grecanic and Byzantine origins: completely handloomed from organic wool, it represents the link of CANGIARI between past and future.
The exhibit will be inaugurated tomorrow, on 25th May, during "Arte al Centro 2018" opening. It will be opened until December.
CANGIARI issues the challenge of convertible items in the new modular capsule designed by Denise Bonapace. A clothing convertibility where garments change shape through a special repositioning of details, making and unmaking them, with an always new identity. A handloom sash on an organic silk skirt, can become a belt or a top, transforming the outfit in an evening dress. A metamorphic dress.
Research of details and innovation of hand-loom weaving are the basis of the capsule CANGIARI in 2018 by Denise Bonapace.
Warm yarns of organic wool and alpaca wool play with attractive colours, like turquoise, green and orange. They create embossing effects and light up black or beige textiles with colour spots.
CANGIARI FW 2017-18 collection is inspired by the colors of nature in Winter, fused in the precious plots of woolly and light handwoven fabrics. A charming ensemble between the ancient tradition rooted in Ancient Greece and the latest trends.
An unconventional selection of materials, inspired by the origins, by the work in factories, by the nights in wartime.
Powerful literary references, losing roughness and becoming elements of a refined femininity in a setting of contemporary fairy tale with light and dark shades.
