G&G: INITIALS FOR ASTONISHMENT
Jersey Lomellina presents GLAMOUR & GLITTER, two fabrics destined to captivate the fashion system. Pride and joy of the company’s R&D, both Glamour and Glitter, thanks to a special innovative treatment, ensure remarkable stain-resistance and a good breathability. They are totally easy-care: they can be washed by hand or machine, at 40°C, and need no ironing. Various tests showed that, even after several washes, the two fabrics maintain their characteristics unaltered, and can guarantee the original shape retention as well as preserve the brightness of colours. These are their common properties, but they differ in terms of look and style.

Glamour blends lightness and a silken glow, showing subtle metallic shines. It is a superfine and ultra-flat fabric. Its reflective surface enhances femininity and the body’s sensuality. Glamour amazes with its vintage yet futuristic allure, ideal for the creation of clothes: from the minimal dresses to the long, more dramatic ones. Its mesmerising iridescence, combined with dazzling colour sparks, make this fabric a real timeless cult of seduction and elegance.

Composition: 89% polyamide 11% elastane

Glitter has a delicate shine, less flashy, calling to mind satin finished metal effects. It is an ultra-flat fabric, with a spirited ultra-modern nature. Its cool, young and high tech mood makes it just right for the design of easy wear, sportswear and fashion garments. It wraps the body shaping it, following and highlighting its sinuous curves. Glitter provides a strong identity to contemporary garments, refining the mix&match style in a balance between glamour and irony.

Composition: 80% polyamide 20% elastane

With Glitter and Glamour once again Jersey Lomellina confirms its ability in combining quality, ideas and high technologies. Such fabrics are just perfect for multifaceted applications in fashion and sportswear, for alternative and trendy beachwear and for seaside prêt à porter.

WONDER, NOTHING MORE
Be simple, be perfect, be Wonder. Study, analysis and research have taken Wonder to extraordinary new heights in every field of application. The new image is strong, yet harmonious, striking the perfect balance between hi-tech and style.
WONDER by Jersey Lomellina is a truly modern fabric. Eclectic and versatile, it meets the most diverse range of requirements, no matter how special. It has captured the sportswear market with its feisty and dynamic character. It is tonic and agile for fitness and fresh and young for everyday underwear. It is a fabric with a thousand faces and infinite applications, which has attained outstanding results in terms of performance too. Champions of some of the toughest and most technical sports are wearing it, including swimming, sailing, skiing, cycling and running champs.
The technical sports world now has a new and powerful ally: Wonder.
JL has enhanced this fabric to its full potential: it is soft and comfortable, compact and opaque. It guarantees total 50+ protection against UVA and UVB rays. Its special structure allows natural perspiration evaporation (Moisture Management), which means the fabric dries quickly, whilst keeping the body temperature constant. Wonder provides a perfect fit that models the wearer’s figure without being constricting, thus improving performance. It is totally easy care, may be hand or machine washed at 40°C and needs no ironing.
The fabric colour card (made up of around 50 colours) has been completely overhauled and works in perfect harmony with its cutting-edge, decisive and dynamic character.
Wonder provides just the right combination of fashion and technology: it meets market demands for stylish and trendy garments, yet maintains high performance and long lasting quality.

2010 COLOUR CARD:
IDEAS IN PERPETUAL MOTION
Jersey Lomellina strikes a perfect balance between style and high performance, with a strong focus on the fashion world and new technologies.
The general mood of JL 2010 colour card is that of a dynamic wave generated through different levels of colour brightness: vibrant and brilliant shades are combined with low-saturation and de-saturated colours. Light reaches its apex in the brightest colours, to soften at last into whispered shades. This dynamic motion captures the eye. The new JL colour card has been designed to embrace various product categories such as swimwear, underwear, fashion clothing, sportswear and free time wear, with a special focus on active and competition sportswear.

RAINBOW PARADE
Iris euphoria
A euphoric fairytale feel pervades a world half-way between reality and fantasy. Spontaneous instinctive colours take on form, creating an enchanted garden made up of a thousand vibrant shades.
The colours of the rainbow are split into a range of saturated shades: blues with hints of green, greens with shades of red and purples with hints of blue. In this multicolour setting, colour accents are essential: fiery red, neon pink and sunflower yellow. The deep blues and saturated reds call sports and top-level competition to mind. Sportswear takes on classic strong contrasting colours again and beachwear rediscovers young easy-wear.

ECLECTIC FREEDOM

The refined nature of these colours makes them perfect for other clothing too – anything from beach robes to the trendiest little dresses.
