Italy : Class to show sustainable fabrics on world tour , January 31st, 2015

Class, a style and international network platform that promotes the latest sustainable fabrics for designers embarks on its second S/S 2016 World Class tour beginning from Milan.

This World Class Tour begins in Milan from February 3-5, moves to Madrid from February 17-18, then to Copenhagen from February 23-24, London on February 25 and ends with New York from March 10-13, 2015.

The Class Tour will premiere the latest, exclusive and innovative collections and trends for sustainable fabrics at the international fashion capitals of the world.

Class Spring/Summer 2016 will be characterised by the contrast of strong emotions and softer contradictions, just like an emotional journey.

The tours will feature two key trends. The first, Unconventional Mellow is made up of chromatic dynamism and multi-coloured patterns.

It is like an adventurous trip to seek out new ideas and emotions and has fabrics with shiny effects, geometric prints, drawn lines, irregular jacquards and light embossing.

The second, Emotional Resonance gets inspiration from tactile sounds, the harmonious essence of fabrics that blend practicality and comfort with intense tonalities in powdered effects.

The collection is made up of reliefs, circular knits, striped fabrics and denim looks.

The companies with eco-textile credentials that Class has chosen for the tour present new fashion collections that offer a rich assortment of exclusive solutions, perfect for any stylish creation.

The new products presented employ yarns and fibres of the highest technological content for fabrics of the finest silk, 100 per cent bio cotton, knits, and the ultimate in woolen fabrics.

“Behind each and every eco-textile there is a story of research and cutting-edge technology that the team will explain in full to each visitor,” Class said.

“With the World Class Tour of S/S 2016 style leaders will be able to preview products that embody the very latest trends; new, high-performing technologies and sustainability,” founder Giusy Bettoni said.

Bettoni added, “These three values are sought not only by those who work in the industry but also increasingly by the final consumer and by a public that is aware and demanding.” (AR)
