If a fabric ever symbolized power and wealth then velvet certainly does. Its sumptuously soft qualities evoke sensory memories of special occasions and good times.
Beloved since the age of the Egyptians, the form of velvets we are most familiar with now was made more widely available by the talented Italians around the start of the industrial revolution. You have only to think of the Renaissance portraits of the Medici family to understand why Italy became the first European country to create a velvet industry for itself. This British ex-designer cotton velvet fabric was made in Italy by a company of world-renowned manufacturing for 130 yrs.
This glorious velvet's rich, dark navy base is enhanced by a superfine black latticework effect that almost emulates the depth of the darkest starless night sky.
Italian Opulence Navy is a medium-weight all-cotton velvet with a stable hand and sumptuous soft drape quality, displaying the luxurious light-reflecting pile. The British designer where this fabric originates is known for its super-smart and distinctive men's and womenswear range.
Create your own feel-good occasion wear (or spoil yourself for winter workwear) pieces with this dark majestic beauty.
Italian Opulence Navy will make dapper dinner Jackets and blazers, matching waistcoats, stylish skirts and terrific trousers- neat slim silhouettes or softly flared styles are appropriate for both trousers, skirts and pinafore dresses. Take inspiration from the daring socialites of the twenties or the rock scene legends of the seventies.
Line with one of our SOS or Jewel Jacquard fabrics (from the same British designer) for the epitome of luxury. If a total velvet ensemble is not for you, team this handsome beauty with one of its sibling fabrics (from the designer range) in super-soft wool flannel, like; Myrtille - Cosy Micro Birdseye. This combination will have an enduring style, perfect for suits jackets or dramatic equestrian-style dressage coats.
