The Charm of Velvet: Style and Trends of Autumn-Winter Wardrobe

23 Oct 2023

Velvet, a timeless fabric with ageless style, makes its triumphant return in autumn-winter collections, adding a touch of elegance and sophistication to the wardrobes of both men and women.

Beloved by designers, artists, and fashion enthusiasts for centuries, velvet captivates our senses with its luxurious texture and rich, warm tones.

In the apparel of the autumn-winter season, this fabric shines again with the enchantment of bygone eras but with an aura of contemporary elegance. Velvet pants, jackets, and dresses have become an iconic choice for those seeking timeless style. With a few velvet pieces in your wardrobe, you can truly infuse a royal touch into your everyday style.

Velvet: A Precious Fabric The history of velvet traces back to the Orient in the 13th century, where the fabric was originally created in the region of Central Asia between Iran and Iraq. In Italy, it began to spread over the centuries from the "samite," a heavy fabric of pure silk with a velvety hand and a satin-like, glossy appearance, considered its ancestor. It was worked in Palermo and Venice, cities in constant contact with the Orient, and later spread to other Italian regions, to become over time a symbol of preciousness and luxury.

Initially made of silk, characterized by extraordinary shine and pleasant softness to the touch, it later began to be made from natural fibers such as cotton, linen, wool, and mohair, which gave it greater resistance to adapt to daily use. Nowadays, there are also options for velvet made from synthetic fibers, although it is advisable to prefer those made from natural fibers that guarantee optimal comfort, quality, and versatility.

Versatility of Velvet: Variety and Finishes Velvet comes in various varieties and finishes, each with its unique charm. The finishes add additional nuances to the fabric, giving rise to different varieties, such as corduroy velvet, ideal for shirts, jackets, and pants, for example, as it can provide a pleasant weight to the garment, texture, and durability over time.

On the other hand, silk velvet is distinguished by its luxurious shine and lightweight, making it perfect for evening dresses and refined garments.

Cotton velvet, with its distinctive corduroy texture, offers breathability and is a versatile choice for casual clothing.

Finally, smooth velvet, with its soft, velvety texture, adapts to both elegant occasions and casual looks, ensuring a luxurious feel to the touch.

The versatility of the various types of velvet allows for experimenting with different styles and creating garments suitable for a wide range of occasions, demonstrating that velvet is truly a timeless and limitless fabric.

Velvet in Autumn-Winter Apparel Velvet is suitable for autumn-winter clothing: at this time of year, velvet carves out a special place in the wardrobe, emerging as an exceptional fabric in classic shades such as navy and tobacco. These shades combine easily with white shirts or sweaters in neutral colors, adding a touch of elegance to the most sophisticated looks and bringing a note of refinement to casual outfits.

Soft and shiny, velvet is much more than just a material: it is a rich and sophisticated style statement that elevates every look. To successfully pair it, however, it is important to choose materials that enhance its luxurious texture. A silk shirt with a velvet blazer creates an elegant contrast for an evening look, while a thick cotton sweater under a velvet dress is a more casual option for an informal, yet highly classy ensemble.
