Italian knitted fabrics producer Maglificio Ripa will present a preview of its Splash collection for summer 2022, at MarediModa which is being held at Villa Erba in Cernobbio, Lake Como, from 3-5 November.

“The result of attentive stylistic research and exceptional technological support. The collection expresses pure energy that is sophisticated, modern, and innovative all at the same time,” says Ripa. “Each fabric is an exquisite creation that renders homage to a concept.”

“There are four main themes, each with a well-defined soul and character,” adds Ripa. The themes are described as follows:


A timeless atmosphere without spatial borders, full of hushed tones and keys to understanding borrowed from the past. The fabrics are lightweight, inviting, and soft to the touch. They are embellished with plays on transparencies, with areas that alternate between a clever use of fullness and emptiness, adding movement to what originally inspired the creation of ‘swintimates’; a swimwear and underwear hybrid.

The designs, for both the prints and the jacquards, are ethereal and bring to mind the elegance of lace and macramé, whereas the pastel colour palette is highly sophisticated with an antique flair.


Irreverent, energetic, and monumental. Energy is all that is technical and daring, with closely woven, brightly coloured fabrics. The world of stripes, a Ripa classic, is exalted and reinterpreted in a kaleidoscopic range of masterfully matched colours. The designs are macro and of strong visual impact, with a rainbow array of bold, vitamin-like, saturated colours that truly stand out.


The theme is travel, the importance of sharing experiences, and the search for new sources of inspiration. It represents the discovery of new symbols and new signs. The fabrics are rich and elegant, for a type of luxury that is sumptuous and never ostentatious. Travel intended as a moment to fully enjoy everything, to feel the pulse of the planet, and absorb sensations in maximum comfort.

Lurex plays a key role, lighting up areas without ever clashing, ennobling without ever going over the top. A magical touch also on 3D surfaces that play a fundamental role within this category.

The colours are harmonious and sophisticated. A sublime olive green, silk colour, and all shades of brown. The classic Capri and Riviera-style seafaring combinations are unmissable.


It is a tribute to the planet and an homage to nature. A powerful mix that represents the attention that Ripa has always paid to the issue of environmental sustainability throughout its entire production phase. In this category, the fabrics are green and innovative, bio-based, and pre and post-consumer recycled, with natural fibres and in irregular textile weaves and designs that bring to the forefront key elements of the collection. The tones, like the prints, are natural, and warm and cosy.
