R Domus – our home décor division

R Domus collections offer an infinite range of possibilities, the result of the Group’s tradition and a constant dialogue with the world of design, where experimentation and design trends become an important plot for each creation dedicated to textile publishers, global wholesalers and contract.

R Domus has also been able to find a new balance between innovation and concreteness also in the study and creation of the customers’ windows, translating ideas into interior design projects through fabrics, cushions and furnishing elements.

R Domus fabrics

It is a secret thread that unites the R Domus collections. A thread that connects the tactile emotion of the fabric to the logic of the taste and needs of its customers. In doing so, the new fabrics are presented in a complete way to meet all needs with a series of proposals to be read as the confirmation of that style and research that has always characterized the furniture division of Ratti.

R Domus fabrics satisfy the classic canons of Italian taste, while adapting them to a contemporary style to accommodate the growing dynamism of the design world and its deep-rooted need to be performing and, last but not least, perfectly beautiful.

 

Ratti Select – Online the new menswear selection S/S22

Burning man – The basic idea of ​​the new fabrics in the collection is based on the contamination between light-heartedness and neo-hippy aesthetics, in which more libertarian echoes of the homonymous festival are grafted onto the floral vintage theme. An infinite sequence of sun and stars that eludes conformity and gives space to the uniqueness of each.

Archive – It is time to look at the present with a good dose of inspiration, but starting from the origins of the archive to reinterpret the stylistic codes. A leap in time to give life to a new way of dressing and creating a new aesthetic. The collection follows this sap, focuses on a reinterpretation in which original elements fulfill new functions in an exchange of graphics, colors and materials.

Yachting – “..and being shipwrecked is sweet in this sea” this is the opening words of the Yachting collection for an “infinite” game of anchors, life jackets and seafaring atmospheres. It is these elements, with their extraordinary decorative beauty expressed through fresh colors ranging from blue to pastel shades of orange and pink, that build the texture of these new fabrics. A collection that mixes sartorial construction with designs found in naval academies.

Ratti Select – On line the new proposals

Ratti chooses, through its RattiSelect website, to go beyond the tactile component and focus on the visual one to present a new offer of feminine fabrics with their strong emotional impact.

Three are the lines explored: Ariel, Spice and Alice.

Ariel – It is the story of a summer trip that reminds a free elegance, with prints that evoke lush tropical scenery where red, in all its shades, is the passpartout of this eden. Graphic details and a sea of satin create a relaxed but well-defined allure.

Spice – It is the 90s with brushstrokes of fluo and acidic colors that give a boost of energy to the mood of the collection for a series of fabrics with an urban and pop soul to reinterpret according to their individuality. Freedom prevails over construction as an antidote to the present time.

Alice – A digital immersion in a utopian world, created starting from Lewis Carroll’s drawings, where flowers, paintings and skins make their entrance in a perpetual vortex. It’s a kaleidoscope made of bright colors and fantastic graphisms to break away from the real and give vent to the imagination

 

New year’s colors: ultimate gray and illuminating.

On one side, the reassuring shade of ultimate gray while on the other the energy released from the Illuminating yellow. This, the decision of the Pantone Colour Institute, that also this year, traced the path of 2021 essence in fashion, accessories and next future design.

Pantone 13-0647 illuminating is a yellow in its more shining tone, warm and intense like a sunbeam, while pantone 17-5104 ultimate gray is like the colour of pebbles on a beach or those natural elements with their innate resilience and ability to resist time.

The mix of these two colours, only apparently apart, will show how even opposite elements may give birth and express the spirit of the next 12 months of 2021. Concrete and tough months but at the same time, warm and full of confidence to express all the energy and positivity that we all deserve.

Wax Africa Ratti

Ratti Italian Wax – Amazon

Constantly in line with the speed at which the market changes, and ready to offer, every month, fabric previews increasingly targeted to digital customers, Ratti launches a new Wax range on its page in the Made in Italy showcase of Amazon www.amazon.it/ratti

The new collection relies on precious details to combine the iconographic culture of Sub-Saharan Africa with a future in which new textures and designs tell a feminine world where jewels embellish the clothing of queens and princesses.

It is precisely the designs of these necklaces that are the central idea of the new Wax Ratti fabrics, halfway between tradition and contemporary taste in which nobility blends with an unexpected attitude to rebellion. The result is a whirling blending of floral designs and decidedly geometric features, with a palette imbued with blue, slight touches of lacquer red and marked shades of orange, periwinkle and jade, just like a royal jewel.

Ratti is fashion-conscious and starts a new phase in its collection, which reflects a refined taste as well as the heritage of our made in Italy, successfully expressed by the colours and designs of the new Wax fabrics.

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.
