Haute couture has always bestowed dreams, trying to make the ephemeral concrete and to enhance feminine beauty through fabrics and clothes. Ratti could not but be part of this world, combining its talent in creating fabrics of rare beauty with a balancing of the shapes and the contours of the volumes, to create its own taste and style.
The haute couture fabrics of the Ratti Group combine imagination and craftsmanship, enveloping the female figure with each fold of cloth, while at the same time highlighting the symmetry of each movement. Ratti’s most exclusive collection is similar to a palette of voluptuous shades on which vibrant colours alternate with more ethereal and delicate pastel shades.
The approach taken by the Ratti style office to every fabric intended for the world of haute couture favours working in a methodical way, even though it is imagination and creativity that then dictate the pace of each variation.
The principal themes of fashion fabrics
These are the floral compositions, the main theme of Ratti’s haute couture fabrics. Each bouquet represents the favourite design, created and stylised in accordance with the trends and the taste of the moment, while at the same time bringing out all the curves of the future garment and the richness of haute couture.
Other patterns which are now widely used in the world of haute couture are the animaliers, revisited and adjusted in a myriad of interpretations. With the same energy as the animal-themed prints, in the Ratti luxury collection there is a place for fabrics with geometric motifs and their endless variations thanks to overlaps and interlocks that highlight the technical virtuosity of the style office.
3D fabrics and volumes
For the creation of haute couture clothes, Ratti offers devoré velvets, jacquards and fils coupés, silk duchesse, satins and chiffons.
When speaking of devoré it is always with reference to velvet. Devoré is a type of processing that, using the French term, “devours” the fabric. It is a textile printing system in which a part of the fabric itself is removed so that the base becomes transparent, thus enabling the display of a design that takes shape from the “non-devoured” fibres.
Ratti’s great tradition and experience is the basis on which the jacquards and fils coupés of the collections come to life, unique pieces of unparalleled beauty. Fabrics for haute couture tailoring thanks to the three-dimensionality of the bases on which are created micro and macro designs with their interplays of yarns and colours.
Satins, chiffons or the lightness of silk duchesse are all members of the great family of silks, fabrics intended for the creation of works of rare beauty that are only to be found in haute couture. A world of fabrics where masterpieces are composed with virtuosity and painstaking attention to detail, using crepes and chiffons to create a garment that is at the same time light and refined, without losing its volume and substance.
Last but not least the world of wool and cashmere, unique and of the highest quality, and which, thanks to the versatility of the fibres, lends itself to the creation of extremely sophisticated high-fashion clothes with an impeccable cut.
Ratti’s savoir faire is long-standing, and with its fabrics, intended for the world of haute couture, it is able to provide an infinite range of fabrics, creating refined plays of colours and materials that are always eye-catching.
