The company’s 2019-2020 collection will be unveiled at Premier Vision in Paris in mid-September.
“Our newest collection intertwines technology and functionality, extreme customization and the brand’s versatility that never ceases to amaze,” said Alcantara Chairman and CEO Andrea Boragno. “All of these characteristics, together with our constant attention to the environment, make Alcantara the material of the future.”
Boragno said the collection focuses on five different expressions of Alcantara® that were developed by the company’s design team, including:
- Timeless – Inspired by the love for “Made in Italy,” which features patterns from classic fabrics.
- Handmade – Created from the marriage of traditional craftsmanship and the latest technology.
- Bloom – Focused on flowers and rich textures for an organic, emotive sense of feeling.
- Garden – Germinated from a visualization of the plant world, full of foliage and overprints.
- Jungle – Imagined with animals as the protagonists, using embossing, embroidery, printing and laser cuts that replace leathers, to underline the brand’s commitment to the environment.
The collection’s five expressions embody the essence of Alcantara and the evolved lifestyle the brand represents in a wide range of colors, Boragno said. He noted that the material connects the worlds of fashion, accessories, automotive, hi-tech and interior design, placing the brand at the center of contemporary life.
