Iluna showcases smart lace solutions in Hong Kong

A new initiative titled Nature Moves Us has been presented at this week’s Interfilière Hong Kong, in line with the powerful global trend towards smarter fashion solutions. The platform is dedicated to defining the importance of more sustainable materials and smart, responsible manufacturing while reducing waste, pollutants and focusing on recycling as a smarter way forward for the intimate wear, beach and hosiery sectors.

Iluna Group, a leading producer of lingerie, lace, beachwear and bridal products, has been invited to be a part of this new platform and to showcase its best fabric and fashion smart innovations using Roica Eco-Smart family, a range of responsible made premium stretch yarns by Asahi Kasei.

For this area, Iluna presented an exclusive and elegant lace long dress, created in collaboration with Valery, starting from an allover textronic ultralight lace with a complex organic design completely made of recycled materials, using Roica Eco-Smart yarns.

Season novelties

The company also presented its new collection of smart lace innovations. This season novelties included a Green Label collection. In addition to the allover, jacquard, double jacquard and mesh offer, the line is also featuring new stretch Galloon laces fully made with GRS certified recycled materials, including the stretch thanks to the introduction of the unique Roica sustainable yarn.

Iluna has also introduced a worldwide première: allover laces made with Naia cellulosic fibre by Eastmann, combined with Roica premium stretch sustainable yarn, realised on warp knitting jacquard looms. The company also presented for the first time the latest version of the stretch Roica Colour Perfect yarns in its stretch lace, delivering premium stretch and sustainability.

Smart Bucket Bag

In cooperation with Roica and Cupro by Asahi Kasei, Iluna also introduced Smart Bucket Bag as a special limited-edition gift. Originally, this was a roomy bag shaped like a bucket, taller than it is wide, with a rounded bottom. It first came to fashion in the 1900's, from a pouch with a string and a hardened bottom.

Federica Annovazzi approached this idea by starting with the traditional shape, reimagined to achieve a contemporary design by applying smart materials and manufacturing. A beautifully crafted ‘double face recipe’ was made by using a luxurious Cupro fabric by Infinity, combining it with an Iluna stretch lace, designed and produced with Roica Eco-Smart sustainable yarn.

The bag is manufactured exclusively by Made in Carcere, a cooperative of women in rehabilitation, creating a useful social exchange. The Made in Carcere brand was founded in 2007, thanks to Luciana Delle Donne, founder of Officina Creativa, a non-profit social cooperative.
