For Autumn/Winter 2019-2020, Sensitive Fabrics by Eurojersey is presenting a collection of versatile and multifaceted fabrics suitable for multiple applications on the apparel market. “Thanks to the uniquely performing qualities of Sensitive Fabrics, which are impeccable in their fit, easy care, wrinkle free, breathable and able to follow each movement of the body in various activities all through the day, every shape is sculpted and comes to life in the form of iconic and multi-purpose garments,” the company reports.
The entire collection is underlined by digital printing, whose 3D rendering interprets textural effects, thanks to innovative 3D print technology and special yarn dyed and délavé. For this latest technology, inspired by Massimo Osti’s projects, the father of contemporary techno-fashion, Eurojersey is presenting the garments’ dyeing and cold washing technique onto Sensitive Fabrics.
“Prints, patterns and colours recount a collection played out between a rather formal and elegant style and a more casual attitude, interpreted in three main themes: Unisex, Wallstreet Wear, and New Opticals,” the company continues.
The first theme focuses on heritage patterns and tuxedo prints with a 3D look, with a tailor-made elegance that blurs the borders between feminine and masculine. The classical shades of blue and grey are punctuated by browns and dusty reds.
This theme stands for classical and formal style, which overlaps business and private life and is interpreted by retro prints of textural effects, artfully highlighted by digital printing. Shades of sand and brown are broken by a matt pigment which gives the fabric a three-dimensional look and a surprising hand-feel.
The following theme is about eclectic prints reminiscent of the 70’s style, black and white and refined nuances for animated textural effects. Pattern melds with volume in geometric patterns inspired by urban buildings.
Yarn dyed effect
Eurojersey presents the evolution of digital printing through a technique that reproduces the yarn-dyed effect on Sensitive Fabrics, simulating a knitting dyed yarns construction already dyed. “It is a high definition digital technology that involves the preparation of the print files with an exclusive software thus creating a new category of patterns which reproduce the typical textile frame of yarndyed fabrics,” the company explains.
“Thanks to the Sensitive Fabrics extremely smooth and flat surface, it is possible to obtain printed micro patterns without colour dispersion. The result is a printing and colour rendering that allows a unique definition of details even in case of greater stretch of the fabric, with thin textured weaves or micro geometric designs printed on Sensitive Fabrics on a dyed background with an amazing uniformity and precision.”
Garment dyeing and Cold washing
Drawing inspiration from the projects by Massimo Osti, the father of contemporary techno-fashion who revolutionised the fashion industry in the 80’s and 90’s, Eurojersey is presenting the garment dyeing and cold washing technique on Sensitive Fabrics: Finished garments are dyed in a colour bath before being washed, enabling them to retain their natural characteristics and to take on some unique colour nuances.
The reinterpretation of bomber jackets and pants harks back to the grunge style, in which dirty colour tones are washed with enzymes and placed one on top of the other to create washed out colour effects, showing how colour can vary at different temperatures.
