Impressions on knitwear and fabrics that preserve the memory of water; a play on colours that light up the weave and dissolving of the textures on the body, maintaining the movement of the waves. Is it a dream? No, it is a splash into the Roberto Collina 2020 SS collection that is getting ready to present its…. Metropolitan mermaids in Paris, highlighting an aquatic dimension in its patterns and colours that can display an ever-increasing number of hues.
Using Lurex and transparent fabrics, open-weaves and tie-dye effects, fabrics that envelop the body and feel like liquid light to wear, the brand is transforming the essence of water into something to wear, for chic women who are can be both bewitching and seductive, but always totally elegant.
Roberto Collina transforms the underwater and overwater allure into a male pret à porter collection, which will debut at Pitti Uomo next week and be summarised in the pictures of the new look book. The shape of water, reinterpreted by life, art and photograph becomes the scenographic inspiration of a style – that isn’t free! – from which garments full of ‘chiarosccuro’ hues take life, and where the styles explore the seabed, where elegance borrows aquatic light and transfers it into intense details that can be explored by wearing them. A fascination that does not neglect special marine treatments and... divertissement, maintaining a precise, relaxed fit that hints at a sensation of natural wellbeing.
The hot season is (finally!) here and Roberto Collina… answers the call, with its female models with extra-light textures and a mix of colours and patterns that contain all the intensity of a Caribbean escape. Exotic prints and motifs are inspired by the graphic creativity contained in the works of Tom Abbiss Smith (@tomabbisssmithart) include lively collages of colours and jacquard, stripes and geometric patterns, all forming a crescendo of tropical vibe. The lines are well-defined, wrapping around the body, overlaps play with colours, bringing to life this wearable vibrant “island” style.
Are you ready to dive into paradise?
Menswear Spring Summer 2020 collection is inspired by the water.
An inspiration and an exhalation: swimming thoughts melt, flow away, become fragments caught by a flash of sun, between the shades of color in the sky and in the water, inside the crests of a wave.
It's the turn of...

Taking it slow? No thanks! The word out for the coming summer is movement... in life and in clothing. We can dance on the beach and... we can wear items that are full of amazing stitches created by Roberto Collina, producing dynamics that become a real statement to wear.
There is nothing boring about our knitted bomber jackets and Bermuda shorts for men that echo an African-style mood only in an urban version, playing with magical jacquard patterns created by mixing up different yarns. The long sleeveless jacket with fringe trim is more than a waistcoat, with its attractive bouclé pattern effect: as always, garments that make such an impact!

Close your eyes and let yourself get carried along by the images of the brand’s new SS 2019 shoot, that chose the very place where ideas become pret à porter as the preferred setting for the ‘it’ pieces that will be available on the e-commerce site. The company’s headquarters and production site in Crevalcore welcomed back the summer items worn by the models, who posed amidst ironing presses and cardboard boxes ready for shipment, amidst the weaving room’s new machinery and the knitters’ tables. a cool new set that is so attractive for visually highlighting the expertise, product care, and attention to detail that are inherent of a brand that has written, and continues to write, the history of Made in Italy knitwear.
