This is a busy autumn season for Valeria Fortini, the student chosen by Roberto Collina as protagonist of the level one Master’s course in “Creative Knitwear Design” held at the Accademia Costume&Moda in Rome and Modateca Deanna. Valeria is working hard on her capsule collection that will be shown for the brand in the next edition of Pitti Filati in January.
Developing her Nordic them, Valeria is concentrating on 6 outfits (for men and women) inspired by Iceland and in particular taking ideas from the work of a group of artists who have made this subject and all its various facets the centre of their production, Art in Nature.
Focus on contrast: amidst oversize silhouettes and micro details, neutral colours – white, beige and grey – accented by strong colours – red and yellow mainly. The designs chosen to optimise this mood linger on the play of floating yarns, jacquard patterns, stripes and hand embroidery… would you like to find out more? Stay tuned!
