Fortuny is pleased to introduce its new W/S 2016 collection, Micromondo. With 112 SKUs available in 10 patterns and up to 20 color ways, the collection presents a refreshed interpretation and modernized adaptation of Fortuny’s distinguished prints, in addition to new velvets, wools, linens and sheers.
While continuing the legacy of a refined color palette and bespoke Italian textiles, the Micromondo collection offers versatility and timeless elegance. Composed of the highest quality fibers including wool, cashmere, linen and cotton, the collection features solid and textured abstract minimalist motifs, skillfully designed to create the quintessential depth of the house’s fabrics. Drawing inspiration from the unique landscape and lifestyle in the Venetian lagoon, the collection incorporates texture and light into the fabric, allowing users to continually discover new worlds beneath the exquisite appearance. The brand new prints in the collection reinterpret three classic Fortuny designs in an entirely new way. At first glance, Micro-Barberini, Micro-Rabat and Micro-Campanelle seem like modern, geometric, small scale patterns, but step back and a large scale Fortuny design magically reveals itself.
The Cogolo line takes inspiration from the fishnet used by local fishermen, finely woven and dyed to induce a casual elegant vibe. The misty haze that covers Venice in a mysterious and romantic aura inspires the sheer wool Foschia line. The Barena line is reminiscent of the lagoon’s salt marsh; its rich texture and multi-dimensional colors in reaction to light help the line pair well with a wealth of patterned fabrics. With a wide range of rub counts, colors and widths, the Micromondo collection opens the door to ever more versatile applications in interior design while preserving an overall luxurious feeling.
The collection pays tribute to Mariano Fortuny’s painterly approach to fabrics and plays with the idea of a world within another world. Fortuny stays true to its commitment to the highest quality materials and a refined taste in color. While every fabric in the Micromondo collection renders a harmonious compliment to Fortuny’s existing fabrics, they each shine on their own.
