We are now in the middle of winter and we just have to really cover us, warm us with all means at our disposal… gloves, scarves, hats, capes: you can no longer ignore the cold that grips us tirelessly!
A few weeks ago I told you about how to defend ourselves from the cold weather withwool sweaters for Christmas , but today I want to tell you about a type of tissue that alone creates trend. Not just talking about a trend like the Baroque era, the years 70, 80 or 90… the speech is much broader and especially deep. The velvet is one of the oldest tissue there is, it is always used in all areas: in the production of clothes, jewelry, bags, shoes. Its versatility is impressive thanks to the soft and enveloping texture. It is also perfect for the temperatures of this period so as to be practically a full-blown trend.
The term “velvet” comes from the Latin “vellus” and literally means fleece. It’s called the furry fleece blanket animal.. soft and warm coat that allows them to be always protected from the cold. For this reason, the velvet, which is a fabric made with lots of wires cut rings that make precisely hairy, took its name from vellus. There are various types of velvet around, all very characteristic for the type of work which it is intended. We speak of smooth velvet, hedgehogs, velor, chenille, the devore, the fried, the micro velvet, velvet and stretch velvet jacquard. Each of these is distinguished by the type of processing which allows the realization and especially for end use which is intended. I have already mentioned in clothing that is widely used both for its softness (jackets and coats are stunning) and for its protective qualities: in fact, I find it a great alternative to the ecological fur. Even the world of accessories can not help but use the velvet, especially jacquard pattern that allows the creation of special and original textures and patterns.
THE VELVET DEVELOPMENTS IN FASHION
So you can imagine that for some time and by many designers is used in the most imaginative ways, but could you think that already in the fourteenth century was used?? With the passage of time then was increasingly used in tailoring and was loved by princesses and the wealthiest women. In fact, their clothes gorgeous (as I told you in the articles devoted to Worth and Poiret) were almost always soft inserts and velvety. Worth loved to create warm and cozy velvet capes for its customers, Poiret instead dabbled in creating loose clothing and to superdecorati his mannequin.
Today even top designers realize much of their collections using this fabric and I honestly I can only approve their choice. It is not just a matter of comfort and temperature (wearing a velvet jacket is immediate guarantee of continued warming!) But it is the taste that you can immediately transmit to a dress, a shoe. I think the velvety texture has a very particular light that shines and stands out. The evening outfits become perfect and elegant, but also the day look can count on the class and the velvety elegance. In short, our imagination may well wander among all the leaders velvety … and if you have not in your beautiful blue velvet coat closet I would say that is the case as soon as possible to remedy!
