SS18

Carlotta Canepa continues her wandering around the world in the discovery of colors, art and atmospheres to sew a collection of atelier, very couture that transforms a great emotional patchwork in a singular fashion proposal. He flies over the globe, embarks on a caledoscopic journey to capture the colors of the new SS 2019 collection, the colors of the earth, spices,  corals, reds and blues, and interweaves them with his urban romanticism, in glamourous volumes and bon ton silhouette.
20 models, each with a different story, all perfect for the most personal combinations, all in excellent fabrics, protagonists for the quality, the plots and the extraordinary fantasies. Carlotta Canepa weaves the lines of her collection starting from a sophisticated research on fabrics, a journey back in the past to continue the tradition of her family, owner of the historic textile company that supplies the most important international fashion brands. In the company archives, which collect more than 15,000 volumes of fabrics, Carlotta develops her selection and interprets it in her style. Light dresses and shirts, vintage-inspired skirts, full trenches and cabans that glide over with wide flares in a collection that has a lively rhythm combined with the scent of hibiscus, tobacco and fresh ramage, plus irregular squares and polka dots, played on crossings of white, blue and red. All the patterns are protagonists and also animate the interiors of the unlined fabrics, the designer's stylistic element.

The chain plot that characterizes the models has an oxymoronic rhythm, where the negative alternates with the positive in a two-color balance. The jaquards express the inspiration to the micro cultures of the art and craft textile of the whole world, as shown by ikat, chiné effects and chevron armor, for the wide skirts, the maxi geo and the squares of déco inspiration, the stripes in mogador effect relief for the inevitable lines that act as a staff to all Carlotta collections. Fabrics of ethnic tradition made with a precious savoir faire in pure silk rams, matelassé, interlaced yarns, lurex, fil coupé, twill and cotton with special multicolor textures, such as silk bourette and seersucker. The prints are on pure habotai silk and crêpe de chine, on cotton and viscose seersucker with checked weave, fresh and light for the warm season.
The designs have a unique charm: waves, geometric polka dots, placed panels, squared, stylized floral and modern feuillage while the united have the same joyful colors of prints and jaquards for easy and fluid combinations. The whole collection is based on eco-sustainability, an indispensable topic in the fashion concept of Carlotta Canepa, an active supporter, at an international level, of interventions favoring an environmentally friendly fashion. The new trenches for spring 2019 are a particular example of how fashion can combine glamour, quality and ecology. They are made of jacquard fabric with bicolor effect yarn, 100% eco, made with Kitotex® SAVEtheWATER®, the patent of Canepa Evolution, which avoids microplastics during weaving.
