Through the development of the the latest summer collections for man and woman, we also co-worked with the Prato spinning mill Mister Joe.
Mister Joe is specialized in high quality Mohair yarns since over forty years, For the latest Spring Summer ’22 collection has created a series of beautiful yarns with particular characteristics.
Most of them are also regenerated and certified Global Recycled Standard (GRS) We therefore decided within the FMF style office to use some of these yarns for both men’s and women’s garments to be included in our new summer samples.
Among the yarns we used we find teh yarn Zenzero, a twisted yarn with a very particular look, since it consists of the twisting of a yarn with a low count and therefore with an important thickness and another in contrasting color and with a thin count. The latter has little buttons that further enliven the final effect of the yarn. With this yarn, with a cotton-nylon composition we have created a men’s vest with central braid, creating a mix of stitches that enhance it as best as possible, since it is already a very beautiful yarn in the plain knit.
The yarn Mombasa, insted is a binary printed yarn with a particular ribbon structure in sustainable viscose, partly Ecovero and partly recycled. It inspired us in the creation of a very minimal man sweater with a slightly loose fit and a simple round neckline, with no collar.
A perfect garment for a spring day or a summer evening, the yarn makes it sagging and light at the right point, even in the simple plain knit it has great effect and lightness. To enhance this last aspect we have decided to create with Mombasa also an openwork dress in which the yarn can be appreciated even more by seeing it in a very feminine garment that enhances its lightness and its beautiful structure.
Gaby is a caged yarn that shows the yarn inside the cage in contrast to the yarn that makes the structure around it. We have chosen to use it for a man’s garment with an aran knit stitch visible in the photo below.
The last yarn is Frozen, a thin two-tone bouclé, that was used for a pair of openwork knit women’s shorts with a strong summer flavor. Perfect for the beach with the openwork and the two-tone effect in 2 very sealike shades of blue.
