Roberto Collina has been telling his story of Made in Italy excellence for over 60 years, thinking, creating and making all his knitwear-based collections in Italy. Today, more than ever, he celebrates the quality, design, product process and panache of his jumpers that have written and still write a significant part of Italian pret à porter history, creating a new frontier in Made in Italy style.
With its true balance between tradition and modernity, Roberto Collina summarises its character in its collections, with experiments where the synergy leads to an idea of pure style in the lines, but which is sophisticated and complex in its actual realisation. The beauty that guides the brand’s signature is a sophisticated, sensitive one that translates into an elegant stance, raising simplicity to a state of purity, and reducing luxury to essentiality. The heart of this company’s style can be seen in the heritage of its manufacture and the historical expertise of design, onto which is grafted, in the full meaning of the word, an innovative sense of aesthetics that places the emphasis on the quality of production. There is a long period of research and realisation behind each garment, which the company follows through each step of production – from choosing the materials to developing the collections – supervising the work of satellite laboratories present in the area and the entire production process, to create excellence. Alongside this is constant research guided by the emotional side of the product and the history that be felt in each item as knitwear is versatile and continuously evolving: it starts with a yarn and can express creativity by following the infinite possibilities of potential, which contain the past and drive towards the future.
