The Vitale Barberis Canonico wool mill is participating in Milano Unica’s 30th edition from 4th – 6th February at Rho Fiera exhibition centre presenting the new proposal for Spring/Summer 2021 inspired by the name Urban Forest. Every day, 21st century man finds himself faced with some fundamental demands his clothes should be able to provide answers to: sustainability, performance and style.

At the start of a new decade, the range of low-environmental-impact fabrics H.O.P.E. comes together with the ranges CLASSICA, SUPERSONIC, VINTAGE and EARTH, WIND and FIRE.

Let’s imagine a conversation between them – what might come up? The SS 2021 collection was created to respond to the increasingly articulated needs of the man of the new millennium, revealing the wool mill’s versatility.

The H.O.P.E. range consists of natural-dyed fabrics, while in the Vintage range there are fabrics whose yarns have been dyed in a special spray-dyeing phase. In the Supersonic range there are fabrics which can be washed in the washing machine at 40° C and the Earth, Wind and Fire fabric has an iridescent membrane and can be used on either side. It has undergone an anti-bacterial treatment to reduce the surface bacteria by means of a particular washing procedure. These are some of the many proposals made for Spring/Summer 2021 by Vitale Barberis Canonico.
