Incontri-scontri di pattern 1
Alexei Izmaylov, hairstyle and make-up by Davide Barbieri

The dark season is over. There are various signs of a turnaround. Among them it is worth mentioning, for the originality of its design, the knitwear collection by Carlo Volpi at its debut in Super, the project by Pitti Immagine and Fiera Milano dedicated to accessories and to women’s prêt à porter.
The oversize jerseys are palettes for graphic experiments in which any contamination is allowed. The lines, in different shades, play with the houndstooth, and the ribbed knit with the ‘rice grain’ stitch…. The shades range from twilight colours such as grey and purple, to those lively colours such as fuchsia and red. The virtuosity of workmanship and oversize dimensions give to the polychrome creations the look of primeval armour.

Incontri-scontri di pattern 2
"I was inspired by the Dutch artistic movement "De Stijl" and in particular by Mondrian works of art" Carlo Volpi
Incontri-scontri di pattern 3
Carlo Volpi chooses the yarn material by colour or by its degree of technological innovation. He believes that knitwear, such as chemistry, is a magical process
Incontri-scontri di pattern 4
Patterns, colours, abstract forms and imaginative motifs influence the new Carlo Volpi collection, inspired by the idea of 'Nothing'

The Moodboarders is a glance into the design world, which, in all of its facets, captures the extraordinary even within the routine. It is a measure of the times. It is an antenna sensitive enough to pick-up on budding trends, emerging talents and neglected aesthetics. Instead of essays, we use brief tales to tune into the rhythm of our world. We travelled for a year without stopping, and seeing as the memory of this journey has not faded, we have chosen to edit a printed copy. We eliminated anything episodic, ephemeral or fading, maintaining a variety of articles that flow, without losing the element of surprise, the events caught taking place, and the creations having just bloomed.
