A COLLECTION OF US

The second capsule makes its debut

The second ‘A Collection Of Us’ capsule of sophisticated knitwear will be arriving both in store and online on December 3rd.

The new mini collection is inspired by the eternal charm of classical ballet and named after the famous Nutcracker ballet scored by Tchaikovsky. Clean lines recall the fluid, graceful movements of dancers and materials such as cashmere, mohair and super fine cotton yarns exude both lightness and romance.

Knitwear is truly the feather in Benetton’s cap and here it is expressed at its best – seamless, fully fashioned, fisherman’s rib, moss stitch and embroidery. The results of this expertise are unique pieces such as the embroidered moss stitch maxi coats, tubular-sleeved wrap-over tops, cocoon-like roomy sweaters, above-the-knee dresses, exquisitely embroidered wool shawls and soft rib-stitch leg-warmers. Younger girls will also delight in tutu-like mini-skirts, romantic t-shirts and cozy fingerless gloves.

Colours are naturally delicate and harmonious and include dusty rose, creamy white, mauve and a touch of brick red, inspired by the colour of the leg-warmers a very young Carla Fracci used to wear after her ballet performances.
