Ratti at Milano Unica

At the 31st edition of MilanoUnica, Ratti is introducing its new collection of shirt fabrics, with each creative detail free and removed from the concerns of this time. Ratti’s new RCollection fabrics stem from thorough research into the historical archive of the Guanzate-based company in a quest for modernity and graphisms that yearn for simplicity and versatility.

Alongside the classic light-blue tones of shirt fabrics, RCollection tells a story of chromatic contrasts, where the essential nature of black is interspersed with true scratches of seduction through the warm hues of melange grey or dusty autumns colours such as brown, mosses, and purple—resulting in a warm elegance with dynamic appeal. At the same time, the black discovers fresh proportions and stratifications, making space for new geometric and floral patterns.

The fabrics, and specifically cotton and wool, are the hallmark of this new way of interpreting the classic, placing the collection halfway between memory and the present day—enhancing the facets of the modern gentleman as he balances nobility and rebellion. This is the new luxury—a sophisticated simplicity that meets the needs of consumers without overdoing it or amaze at any cost but is always capable of expressing the quality that makes this collection unique.

New Deal

On the occasion of the new edition of MilanoUnica (February 2020), Ratti is introducing the New Deal collections for men and women, in confirmation of its project to carry out the printing of yarn-dyed designs onto wool, cotton and linen, offering an infinite range of possibilities with no constraints in terms of creativity, or in relation to timescales or more simply to the number of metres ordered.

Through the items in the current New Deal collection, Ratti is strengthening further the link between its art of printing and the world of fashion ateliers, interweaving in a single exclusive weft, stylistic research, creativity and contemporary trends.

The new fabrics in the New Deal men’s range have a strong sense of proportion without losing their easy-going lightness. There is no predominant theme in the style of the new collection, it ranges from British touches that incorporate traditional motifs, to designs of high craftsmanship, through to contemporary glamour, all translated into a young and fresh language. The result is a range of fabrics that outline a man who is impeccable but at the same time relaxed and who wears and interprets the check designs, the true leitmotif of the collection, with a completely new freedom and ease.

The New Deal woman plays with the colours that revolve around pink in all its shades and the common thread between the white, blue and red classics, without betraying the brand’s heritage with its attention to detail and its continuous search for an elegance that stands out without falling prey to exhibitionism. The feminine fabrics of the New Deal collection show an intelligent conceptual evolution of prints for a woman capable of being daring with style, as if she were a modern Jackie Kennedy, so that taste, balance and delicacy become fundamental qualities at a time when there is too much masculinity. Once again, the Ratti style office has been able to strike a new balance between innovation and substance for a collection of printed fabrics, capable of creating an interaction between contrasting elements that results in an absolutely harmonious ensemble.

Ratti Italian Wax

On the occasion of the 2020 edition of Scoop, next February, in London, Ratti introduces its new Italian Wax collection. A series of fabrics, 100% cotton made in Italy, that highlight the similarities between the styles, without thereby amalgamating them, to demonstrate that despite differences in cultures there is a sharing of values and traditions.

Ratti’s Italian Wax is the result of creativity, images and techniques that relate to a recent past that makes fabrics one of its cornerstones as well as a symbol of belonging. The stylistic code that permeates the whole collection is that of a fusion of styles, colours and ideas belonging to cultures beyond the Mediterranean. A series of fabrics that can be defined as explorations of a world of bold shades alongside unusual prints with micro and macro weaves and flowers of giant proportions.

Like a modern saraband between play and reality, the fabrics of the new collection adapt themselves as perfectly to the geometries of women’s clothing as they do to the male wardrobe characterised by suits and jackets.

Fluidity and versatility are a must of Ratti Italian Wax, characterised by a touch of the romantic and interpreted through the latest fashion trends so as to offer to a transversal clientele a versatile tool that combines the history of a brand like Ratti, with its heritage and lightness, and the contemporaneity of the new decade of the 21st century.

The new fabrics for beachwear

From November 5 to 7 at Mare di Moda in Cannes

On the occasion of the new edition of Mare di Moda, Ratti Setamarina presents the new fabrics for beachwear proposals for Women, Men and Young at stand 67, in the fair pavillons.

Three different souls for a wider beach collection, vibrant with emotion and with a touch of eclecticism in which materials and chromatic games come together and mix with Ratti’s talent and creativity. In this vortex of colour, there is no lack of attention to sustainability, which has always been the backbone of the Group’s strategies. Sustainable fabrics are the mirror of the certifications that the company has obtained over the last few years to protect not only workers and their experience, but also the immense wealth of ideas and creativity, placing ever greater attention at every stage of printing and production in order to minimize environmental impact.

WOMEN
Aristocratic and sophisticated, but at the same time provocative designs merge with atmospheres and colours that have imbued the culture and creativity that are typical of the Guanzate company. Techniques, gestures and images from a recent past come together in a collection that makes the beachwear fabric itself one of the key elements.
The range of colours is varied, from summer brown to full indigo, with accents and references to the lively opulence of the tonal khaki and the green juice, finally reaching the soft and enveloping atmospheres of corals.

MEN
The underlying theme of the men’s collection is a mix of designs and performances for a highly elegant ensemble that does not sacrifice versatility, thanks to the use of light and technical materials that guarantee a natural softness both in the water and when relaxing under the sun.
Undisputed protagonists of the men’s collection are the conversational designs that play and get lost in a tropical forest full of flowers and geometric patterns. The undisputed colour of this part of the collection is blue, combined with turquoises and light blues that soften its seriousness and give fabrics a touch of freshness.

YOUNG
Designed for young and dynamic clients, this section of the collection springs from solid foundations on which a mix of graphic elements, ranging from animalier prints to the geometric expression of the 80s, take shape. They are all fresh, digital 4.0 designs where pastel colours are combined with classic ones to respond to a desire for sunshine and carefreeness typical of the warm season.

Today, to design a collection of beachwear fabrics – says Francesca Lulli, head of Ratti Setamarina style office – means thinking about digital codes and craftsmanship, daily dealing with a world that is constantly changing and that is attentive not only to aesthetics but also to ethics. 

The new R Setamarina collection is exhibited at the fair with a vision of fashion majestic and light at the same time, a vision with which everyone can identify thanks to the electrifying breadth of offer.

The new deal collection

The evolution of the world of warp and weft

Innovation, yet respecting the over seventy years of history, eco-sustainable printing technology and creative talent that crosses the borders of the Guanzate Group: these are the cornerstones of Ratti that, since 1945, has created and printed its own fabrics on a texture made of elegance and absolute quality. The deep knowledge of the subject, together with the extraordinary synergy between the territory and its resources, as well as the avant-garde production, have allowed Ratti style office to present, on the occasion of the new edition of Premiére Vision, “New Deal” the evolution of the world of warp and weft.

New Deal makes the idea of printing yarn dyed designs on wool concrete, elevating it to a futuristic level, thus offering an infinite range of possibilities that have no limits, be those creative, linked to timing or more simply of meters (from less than a meter to more important orders). With New Deal, Ratti combines its art of printing with a constant dialogue with the world of fashion ateliers, mixing experimentation and fashion trends so that they become an important texture for every creation.
With New Deal, the classic archive motifs rediscover an unexpected visual lightness that moves from discreet striped lines to checkpoints of all sizes, full of silent interferences and shadows fading into infinity.  Items more transversal to the urban, biting style also exist, revealing the dynamism of the print emanating from surfaces which are animated by optical or fake jacquard designs. Equally unexpected is the visionary colour palette that alludes to a classic to be discovered, where the warm tones of spices match the blues, while the green dissolves in the gray, combining and coordinating itself on a palette without foreclosure or limit.

Once again, the Ratti style office was able to find a new balance between innovation and concreteness for a collection of printed wool fabrics, thus making contrasting elements dialogue with each other, almost as if they were instruments in an unusual ensemble.

The new AI collections in Paris

From 17th to 19th September Ratti will participate in Première Vision Paris, the most important world exhibition in the textile sector.
On this occasion Ratti will present the new fall/winter 2020/2021 fabric collections designed for men and women’s clothing and accessories.

Regarding the women’s world, the new fall/winter collection immediately reveals the innate passion for fabrics as proof of dreams, feelings, roots and future. A future where the heritage and the values of the Guanzate Group can be found not only in the adopted stylistic choices but also in the huge knowledge of the matter as concrete basis of the office style talent.
The fabrics of the fall/winter collection tell of a product embracing painting, embroidery and last but not least printing, an art in which Ratti excels. These fabrics are the result of a creative project that not only enlightens the liveliness of the drawings but also the craft behind their completion.
The winter of the Ratti Collection is a light, impalpable one, in- between fabrics retrieving archival motifs, like cashmere, and the rebellion traced by geometric designs or by the new floral, painstakingly pictorial bouquets, that take shape on devoré velvet, cuprammonium rayon with full hands or the ethereal silk cady.
The colours palette ranges from the soft and dusty tones of antique pink, with timid hints of sage green, to red in all its more substantial and material variations, that mixing with dark blue-green recalls the atmospheres of winter seas or of stormy blues.
The new Fall/Winter Ratti Collection 2020/21 tells of a romantic woman, who winks at the narcissisms of the haute couture without losing her being dynamic, eager to build a new figure as only Ratti fabrics can create.

Ratti Domus presents the new collection

Natural colors declined in multiple nuances, thanks to fabrics and leathers enriched by refined and evocative suggestions.

There is a new air, the breath of a contemporary, never dormant style, that finds concreteness both in jacquard fabrics and in multiple prints. The new Ratti Domus Collection reveals a sincere aesthetics that refers to natural concepts interpreted according to the inner taste and refinement that have always been the trademark of Ratti.

With more than 400.000 designs, the archive is the essential sap of this collection: a space that can preserve and, at the same time, give new life to a treasure of emotions. It’s a connecting point between the exclusive creativity of the Style office and the requests of an always more demanding clientele.

The aesthetics of the new collection is punctuated by moments and suggestions capable of exalting the proportions between form and material, a harmonious mix of functionality and aesthetics, combined with creative and technical aspects, always looking for the right recipe to create a successful fabric.

Color, sometimes strong and sometimes more natural, marks the beat of the new fabrics. Joint chromatic colors, with incursions into the brilliancy of corals, add a touch of freshness and irony to the classic palette of the furnishing world. The new Ratti Domus collection harmoniously combines a contemporary naturalness with a seventy-year-old heritage.

Ratti at Première Vision Paris

In Paris, on the occasion of Premiere Vision, from 12th to 14th February, Ratti presents the new fabrics of the S/S 2020 collection.

For next Spring-Summer 2020, the creative team at Ratti took inspiration from the Mexican architecture of Luis Barragàn. The fabric of the new collection, like Barragan’s work, is presented in simple tones, drawing strength from the suggestive colours of nature.

Four main themes: Sport, Romantic Picnic, Urban Army and New Night. Focused on spiritual wealth as opposed to materialism, combined with the ability to grasp intimate beauty of simple things while avoiding exhibitionalism and ostentation. Each fabric is the result of deep inspiration, together with long, intensive work to represent naturalness and elegance. It is a sieve of emotions that restrain descriptive dispersion by focusing on an essential form of expression.

In the Sport section, technical viscose is combined with striped barrè and overprinted jaquards.  In the Romantic Picnic, delicate vichy check and overdyed stretch piquet are the champions. Stealing the scene in Urban Army, denim works in unison with jersey, rather than jacquard hosiery effect. Last, as a “red carpet star”, the New Night shines with iridescent lurex evoking wet, holographic and lamé effect in the cloth.

The new Spring-Summer 2020 is designed for a metropolitan world that, pervaded by greater culture and personality, has, over the years, refined its aesthetic taste and sensibility towards fashion, always seeking authenticity.

S/S 2020 men’s collection

From 5 to 7 February Ratti will be present at Milano Unica, the Italian textile trade fair. A not to be missed event to discover the new R Uomo S/S fabrics collections.

The new Ratti Uomo Spring / Summer 2020 shirt collection is designed for a man who is an environmentalist, close to nature; the soul is ethical and ecological. Weaves play on the realization of our prints. This is our company’s technical heritage with over 400,000 exclusive creations in our archive. The high definition and fineness of the drawings permit the ability to create material effect while working on lightweight cotton fabrics, linen and mixed linens, or even more fluid fabrics in cotton and viscose.

A journey into memory, into the elegance of the past, arriving at a fixed point in the unstable equilibrium of the present. Formal and eccentric, two extremes touching each other and giving shape to the courage of “being and of being there.” A collection poised between the beauty of formal geometric patterns and the endless repetition of a subtle figurative art, creating unexpected shapes and sizes, leading to the explosion of black / white photographic effects contaminated by pop colors.

The typical geometric lines of the necktie are reinterpreted, giving life to nonconformity as a declaration of self; the uniqueness of different voices. The new cloths of the Ratti shirt collection provides fans the opportunity to express their distinction and uniqueness in a world where “being” so is complicated. The energy of summer conveys vivacity to the fabrics through the evocative power of color and design. The palette is powerfully fresh, ranging from classic blue and pastel colors, to new horizons under the banner of a new chromatic alphabet.

An essential summer color, blue, is proposed in a series of shades that evolve from the aristocrat to the pictorial; passing from blue workwear to a decidedly more subtle hue. Blue, accompanied by marine designs, micro objects or endless lines, becomes a tool to introduce a new vision of fashion; evocative of different atmospheres, for a new vision of the world of shirts.
