A spring/summer inspired by the exotic literature’s locations

Between 6th and 8th February spring-summer collection presentation at the 26th edition of Milano Unica

Cabo Blanco and Cartagena: two exotic locations of South America that inspired both literature noble prizes and the Piacenza Cashmere spring-summer collection 2019 showcased at the 26th edition of Milano Unica.

Cartagena fabric

Inspired by the homonym town on the Caribbean coast of Colombia: its colours have inspired us to create a fresh fabric made of wool, silk and linen suitable for the warm and humid temperatures of this pearl where Gabriel Garcia Marquez lived for several years and set his famous novel “100 years of solitude”.

Cabo Blanco fabric

Cabo Blanco, a fishing village in the north of Peru that inspired Ernest Hemingway for his novel “The Old Man and the Sea”. The fabric recalls this exotic place because of the two yarns used. The white colour, the Hopsack weave and the irregularity of the frisetted yarn in pure silk give it a pleasantly rustic look, while the pure brushed cashmere makes possible to get a precious, fresh and light weight hand.
