Working on new Winter 2012 2013 collection

Yes, we already selected the new Winter 2012 yarns and we started working on the new Winter 2012 2013 collection. It is always exciting and some way this is the funniest part of the production process. After selecting the yarn, the first step it is developing the first samples ideas and working on the fitting and the knitting. Then the first prototypes are washed and tested. When we come to the final version of the new item, we start working on the colour combinations. Of course not everything is going to be in the collection, so there is a big job before the final version of the sample range usually ready for the presentation for the Pitti Uomo in January (this time January 10th – 13th) in Florence.

It is not unusual we develop special yarns in cooperation with our best suppliers, as we need special treatment specially focus on our product, which is more subject to frictions compared to other items like sweaters, scarfs…
Somtime we blend the yarn ourselves, mixing them during the production process.
