Luciano Barbera Preview Fall 2006 – 3

So Michal Sestak of Barbera is telling me all about the incredible textiles that Barbera develops for their collection and he pulls out this cotton/wool blend sportscoat. He artistically lets it crumple into a plush ball on the table and explains that cotton greatly helps the drape of almost any fabric it is blended with. I don’t know if it is true ,I’m sure it is, but thank God guys in retail stores don’t do that to me or I could never stop buying. Good presentations like his are like clothing crack.

    I think Barbara, like all many other Italian fashion houses…(Zegna, Piana, Etro, etc..) Started out decades ago as fabric mills or producers. With that foundation to build upon, it’s not surprising these companies produce the most sensuous fabrics. Which in-turn give them an advantage in the marketplace.
