Fluid, vague, blurred patterns meet the finiteness of a declared or understated geometry in the new Spring Summer 2023 collection by Society Limonta. Previewed to the press in the Milan flagship store, the "In/definito" collection adds to Society’s textiles two yarn-dyed products that become the representation of the two opposite meanings of the word un-defined, which names the collection: SCIN bed linen, with its streaked colour and made of extra fine threads printed first and then woven, represents the textile materialisation of the concept of undefined; PAR bed linen, with its regular, neat, stripy pattern, embodies the concept of defined.
As a backdrop for the shots is Solo Houses, a project that, through several houses situated within the 100 hectares of the Los Puertos de Beceite reserve in the Matarraña region in Spain, explores the union between architecture, art and nature. Established from the idea of the entrepreneur Christian Bourdais and of the art curator Eva Albarrán, Solo Houses includes, amongst others, Solo Office and Solo Pezo, two differing living spaces and architectures, chosen by Society as an expression of the undefined and the defined. Solo Office cancels out the limits between the indoor and the external surroundings, thanks to a circular structure and the retractable walls, that allow the creation of a deep relationship with the surrounding nature. Solo Pezo, designed as a floating platform between the sky and earth, presents a symmetrical and homothetic design, as a contrast to the spontaneous vegetation that surrounds it.
Albicocca, azalea and matcha are the three seasonal nuances for the bedroom, the dining room and the bathroom. The ramié pillowcases and napkins, with prints chosen from the centenary Limonta’s archives, present delicate floral patterns as well as abstract, geometrical motifs. TUIS, a blanket in bouclé wool and alpaca available in colours bianco, tisana and mastice, adds a decorative touch to the bedroom.
For the table, abaca takes centre stage either as a light and almost see-through, printed tablecloth or as a heavier and textured placemat. TAITI placemats made of raffia and nylon dress the table with unexpected soft, irregular grass blades in colours azalea, matcha, paglia, caffè and black.
A new crepe-effect linen fabric is added to the bath linen collection: CREL, soft and comfortable, elegant and cosy is available as towels in different sizes and bathrobes. Two new beach towels in light linen express the light-heartedness of the summer season. Finally, abaca, crepe linen and yarn-dyed cotton are chosen for the new decorative cushions.
