Armani/Casa exclusive textiles by Rubelli - Collection II


Introduction


This collection perfectly embodies Giorgio Armani’s aesthetic approach: luxurious and understated. These are beautifully elegant fabrics that reflect that indefinable sense of glamour that derives from the fashion scene, thus allowing you to dress your own home in Armani.

The range emphasises wool and silk and cotton and silk combinations, which impart body to textures that alternate between glossy and matt. Geometric or wavy motifs, patterned or solid in contrast colours team unusual shades such as peacock blue and pink; these are juxtaposed with simpler fabrics such as rough linen, silk and cotton that reveal the intrinsic visual quality of the weave.

To round off the collection, lightweight curtains in textured silk and a selection of weights bring a further dimension to this exceptional range.
