La dolce colore
At first sight, they look a bit like burglars with not especially clever disguises, these brightly coloured models on the stand of the Italian yarn manufacturer, Filidea; but, while we still are laughing about it, the designer and knitting expert Magdalena Korpetta emerges into view and explains it all to us. What we are looking at are seam-free, fireproof and anti-static “underwear suits”, which “have been manufactured using a unique knitting process”. Of course, other colours are available for the suits, but black, of course, doesn’t have – especially for a trade fair – quite the sugary luminosity of other colours! As you can see from the pictures, Magdalena and her yarn manufacturer Alberto Grosso are obviously having fun at the fair.
