Versatile, with a wide variety of possible
applications to combine at will. The focus is on four major colour themes:
Bright and dark shades in harmony
White, set among neutrals with the
emphasis on frosty and cool.
Mild, flattering mid-tones
Attractive, dusty intermediate shades.
Bright nuances and sophisticated dark shades are seen as refined bi-colors or unis. They
reflect an authentic sporty interpretation. For use in active sports and casual
leisurewear, to some extent with artisan and folklore elements. Double jersey, also
reversible, lightweight double cloth and taffeta benefit equally from the colours in this
Pure white, set among mainly cold neutrals. These represent modernity and activity. The
colours from the other groups provide added effects and accessories. They are particularly
suitable for qualities with a sophisticated sheen or matt for toile, subtle, restrained
construction looks as well as embossing and iridescent coatings which emphasize the cool
and modern aspects.
Mild, flattering mid-tones are grouped to form a soft and sophisticated colour statement.
They are combined with the colours in groups 1 and 2. They are used in fine côtelé,
gently emerized, cottony diagonals, double jersey, to some extent partially raised.
Particular attention should be paid to green shades.
Attractive, dusty intermediate shades for sophisticated looks. They lead an independent
life and are at their effective best as unis. The colours in group 2 can be used sparingly
for effect. Fabrics are matt, have handle and character and are used for a new, modern,
classic look. Toile, double cloth, finest rib structures and gabardine.
