The new bunch of Drago Lanificio in Biella is a selection of exclusive designs made with the finest merino wool – Super 160’s of 240-250g. The bunch offers a classic and a fancy line. Fancy Line: A metropolitan concert of style and elegance for those who want an uncompromisingly contemporary look. A refined selection of new patterns, ideal for the gentleman who is ever more attentive to details.
Parthenope now joins our collections to enrich your choice with a winter suit which is not only fulled, flanelled and carded but which also adds plied yarn to its characteristics.
The new item Parthenope, a 300gr. – plied yarn, with its innovative mouliné colour variations offers a wide range of patterns in a recollection of the old wool-cachemire fabric or traditional cheviot.
Such a result is obtained by working a monochrome yarn with different shades which remind us of paintings of Monet.
All these features give the article pictorial depth cues and pattern distinctiveness.
To produce a suit with this fabric represents a really balanced solution, being it neither too heavy nor too light. Its high quality and resistance make it suitable both for elegant and casual events.
How can anyone resist the chant of our siren Parthenope, then?
