comfortable-apparel-formal-attireUrban comfort apparel leaves home and goes public. Fashion has ruled for years, but the pandemic has turned the table and now fashion has to keep up and meet the requirements of a new generation.  

Comfortable fabrics for a more functional fashion, making everybody feel at ease without compromising on style and elegance. Formal outfits have been redesigned, the classic business dress code comprising a shirt and a suit, have been reinterpreted  by using more comfortable fabrics originally conceived for other markets such as swimwear or sportswear.

As said before, a new trend was born, the so called conformal style (or comfortable chic) which blends confidence – to be confident – and elegant clothing. Those who want to look smart in front of colleagues and clients even when smart working between one call and the other, will go for a casual chic attire or, better, business casual. Comfortable chic style mixes leisure and the more serious and rigorous business code translating them into comfortable outfits which look good and feel good. 

Carvico and Jersey Lomellina new, innovative collection named Couture Collection follows this trend and blends design, fashion and technology to infuse personality, value and a new look to traditional, classic outfits, interpreting them in  a more modern and  easy-care way. 

Comfortable fabrics and formal clothes revisited in a more practical and essential way, designed to adapt to the faster pace we are going to take up again soon without giving up elegance and style .
