Black, grey and blue are yesterday’s news! We are turning up the volume to be loud and progressive as part of our new partnership with BOLD THE MAGAZINE, that focuses on lifestyle. We are modelling ourselves on the Roaring Twenties and reinterpreting the designs for the BOLD THE MAGAZINE by CG - CLUB of GENTS capsule collection. This collection comprises five suits, one shirt and two handkerchiefs in an unusual colour palette. The fabrics are made exclusively by one of the highest quality weaving companies in the world: GUABELLO.
In order to understand what makes the fabrics in the collections so unique, we visited Guabello in Italy with BOLD THE MAGAZINE.
THE WEAVING REGION OF BIELLA
Guabello is based in Biella, in the north of the Piedmont region, about an hour west of Milan. It is well known in the business that the best-quality suitings in the world come from this area.
Over the past few centuries, a large number of weavers has settled in the area around Biella. The association of Biellese weavers now comprises more than sixty companies, among them are Zegna, Cerruti, Reda, Loro Piana and, of course, Guabello, one of the most renowned.
Since the company was founded in 1815, Guabello’s knowledge has been passed down from generation to generation without a break. And these two centuries of know-how can clearly be detected in all of its products.
From talking to Umberto Quaglia, the sales and marketing director, we learn that the Super 120, Super 130 and Super 150 collections include fabrics made of Australian merino wool, blended with the finest fibres such as silk, mohair and cashmere.
In addition, all fabrics are manufactured exclusively in the company's own facilities. Special machines enable the production of extremely fine fabrics with unmatched lightness.
The fabric for the BOLD THE MAGAZINE by CG - CLUB OF GENTS capsule collection is named “Motion” by Guabello. Manufactured using a special weaving and finishing technique, it is modern, fashionable, comfortable and just the thing to wear to feel wonderful anywhere, at any time. Umberto Quaglia is convinced that “you won’t find a more comfortable suit.”
