Carnevale Collection

Among the mysterious charm of the masks and costumes, in a timeless festive atmosphere, the Venice Carnival has for centuries offered a surprising show known all over the world. The Carnevale Collection by Luca Nichetto takes the cue from playful elements of this unique tradition and transfers them on the surfaces of a collection of three textiles, in the path of Rubelli’s craftsmanship quality in weaving. Coriandoli S takes its inspiration from the irregular shapes of the confetti to design an animated and colourful pattern. An embossed effect enriches the visual look of the texture by adding a tactile feel. Coriandoli XL develops this pattern by enlarging the scale of the confetti and introducing inside some of them a distinctive texture that fills their shape, highlighting dimensions and volumes. Festa resumes and reinterprets in a modern key an iconic design first seen at the Biennaled’Arte of Venice in 1934 and part of the Rubelli’s archive of the most prestigious fabrics. Originally designed by Vittorio Zecchin, an artist from Murano, to be a piece of art, Festa is re-designed 86 years later by Luca Nichetto, a fellow citizen, and it becomes the subject of a joyful pattern. The addition of a shadow between the rays gives a feeling of depth to the stars while their regular distribution on the fabric is interspersed with small dots, resulting in a geometric design.
