Fall Winter 23/24

The Fall Winter 23/24 Collection has a strong character and affirms decisive choices that invite you to navigate between discretion and extravagance. 

To represent the cold season, Pontex chooses high-performance fabrics for clothing, intended for garments for a refined and functional outdoor outfit: timeless moleskin, cotton flannels for shirts, wide-rib velvets to create “malleable and reassuring” garments. 
Garments that last forever but that do not forget the renewal in the creative proposal. 

Technical fabrics, combinations of microfibres and membranes, resins, stone washes resistant over time and always up-to-date for sports and outdoors are contrasted with light and almost fluid fabrics: viscose gauze, rayon and casual cotton and denim with an imperfect and impalpable appearance. 

For Fall Winter 23/24 Pontex also offers a Capsule of yarn-dyed fabrics with an increased fantasy effect and jacquard with playful weaves, completely made in Italy. A further added value, the continuity of the production chain, which is a safety fact in this moment of uncertainty and instability that still persists. 

Among the trends of the Collection, the cottons with new weaving and relief structures that can be customized and declined according to the customer’s request cannot be missing. 


Yarn-dyed fabrics for clothing  

With yarn-dyed fabrics for clothing, it is possible to create particular and limitless patterns, for unique items of clothing in line with the trends of stylists and fashion designers. Pontex capsule, for an utmost customisation of yarn, weight, colour and structured texture Yarn-dyed means that each single yarn is dyed before it becomes warp or weft of a fabric. Many yarns dyed in different colours thus create a particular pattern, a design that is obtained by loom (and not directly printed on the fabric). Cotton, linen and linen cotton trousers: the proposal of Pontex for the yarn-dyed fabrics   Yarn-dyed fabrics for clothing are characterised by exceptional ductility: this enables to use them both obverse and reverse, giving to stylists, fashion designers and creators endless possibilities of choice. They are soft and long-lasting at the same time and enable to create particular patterns thanks to the weave of coloured warp and weft. In clothing, these fabrics are the ideal choice to realise cotton, linen and linen & cotton trousers, always accompanied with elastomer to increase the comfort and wearability of the item of clothing.   Men’s trousers realised in yarn-dyed fabric by Pontex (SS 2024): art 4157 Tfs ecru CALLA YARN-DYED STR.

Shirts: the timeless and four-season piece of clothing, an absolute must have in everybody’s wardrobe

Wearing a shirt means loving comfort and style, for a comfortable and impeccable look that Pontex has been proposing for more than 50 years through high-quality shirt-weight fabrics   Shirt in fabric by Pontex 100% cotton: art. 01203/P05 Prisma PXT - width 145/148 - weight 140/150mtl The history of shirt dates back to the ancient Roman Empire: at that time, it was used as a garment to be worn under dresses, it did not have any collar and it was realised with one fabric alone. Furthermore, sleeves did not have seams and were obtained from the rest of the garment.  Over the years, the techniques to tailor shirts have consigned us a contemporary piece of clothing: a shirt is provided with sleeves, separated from the rest of the garment, with a neckline and more and more refined fabrics like linen and silk, because the element that makes the difference in this type of garment is, for sure, the quality of the fabric.  Since 1950, Pontex realises only the best shirt-weight fabrics: top-quality yarns are carefully selected to create very different weights, hands and looks.It means that the same model can present different looks: slight variations sometimes, or even very significant ones depending on the type of garment we need, anyway always maintaining the strong charm of this great classic of the wardrobe, that is a synonymous with practicality and timeless class. Cotton or elastomer cotton? Viscose or Rayon? Silk or cotton silk? Choosing the fabric depending on the type of shirt that we want to realise is very important   Choosing the fabric  In general, the most used fabric to realise shirts is cotton: it is the one that lasts longer over time and it is often the first choice made by the big brands of fashion. The cotton used for yarns for shirts shall belong to long or extralong-fibre cottons.  Shirt in fabric by Pontex 100% cotton: art. 01203/P05 Prisma PXT - width 145/148 - weight 140/150mtl Shirts in fabric by Pontex 100% cotton in the colours white, blu, black: art. 01203/000 Prisma - width 145/148 - weight 140/150mtl In particular, Pima cotton, well known for its high quality, is provided with natural shininess and resistance to use that make it very suitable for shirts because it has a very soft hand.  Stretch cotton, “poplin”, is very used to tailor this piece of clothing: it allows to obtain a fresh and dry hand, a compact look that is soft and elastic at the same time.  Shirt in fabric Pontex: art. 5610/000 Neith 55% Viscosa 45% Rayon - width 132/136 - weight gr 95mt2     Viscose, rayon, cotton, linen, silk and cotton silk too are fabrics that are very used for shirts, proposed in the capsule collection by Pontex. viscose: soft, shiny and pleasant to touch, it is the ideal choice for light, breathable shirts that dry in a little time and that usually do not create creases and crumples; rayon cotton, cotton combined with rayon, a cellulose fibre based on cellulose that increases its anti-crease resistance and duration. Shirts with a shiny and uniform look are thus obtained.Tlinen, the breathable fabric par excellence: resistant, fresh and ecological for “eco-friendly” shirts; silk and cotton silk for one of the most loved, celebrated and shown off essentials in women’s wardrobes: the light and fluid blouse that maintains the charm of the past with an almost “fluid”, impalpable look, that allows us to indulge ourselves with colours and looks.  Shirt in fabric Pontex: art. 5610/000 Neith 55% Viscosa 45% Rayon - width 132/136 - weight gr 95mt2     Engraved in the hand: all our fabrics, depending on the yarn (therefore on the fibre used and on processing), on the structured texture and finishing, may vary in a significant way in look and hand, giving the final piece of clothing a really different look and comfort. The characteristics “felt by the hand” touching the fabric are: warmth, freshness, softness, compactness, etc. Type and weight of the yarn used for the shirt-weight fabrics are studied by the Research & Development office of Pontex in order to satisfy the most varied needs: from 100 to 170 grams per linear metre for cotton, Pima cotton, stretch and fixed cotton poplin, viscose, rayon cotton and linen fabrics.  Shirts in fabric by Pontex: in the colours white, black, orange, beige, blue (Season Spring Summer 2024). White: art. 12098/00; black: art.1203/000; orange: art.1535; beige: art. 1203/59 Prisma; blue: art.1203/000  Wide range of shirt-weight fabrics available in stock  All the shirt-weight fabrics by Pontex are available in stock (stock service) and in basic colours, with the possibility to customise their weight and colour. The discreet elegance of white is also expressed through colours in the new proposal for shirts made by Pontex for the next Spring/Summer season: black, blue, orange and beige.  Discover all the other fabrics in the Collections by Pontex  navigate_next

Bio-based resins and fluorocarbon free treatments: eco-friendliness in textile industry

Natural resins, gots dyes with natural colourants and pigments, closed-circuit finishings and ecological waterproof treatments: this is how Pontex celebrates eco-friendliness Picture by Adrien Converse su Unsplash The new collection created for the next Spring Summer celebrates eco-friendliness proposing resin treated fabrics for clothing with an increased “nature effect”. Why "increased"? Because natural resins, natural colourings and pigments and closed-circuit finishings, with a low impact on environment, are applied on these fabrics. Pontex aims at eliminating perfluorinated compounds and the trend topic of the season consists in 70% bio-based membranes made with natural substances like corn and rapeseed, waterproof and with an organic basis. These membranes can be applied on any kind of fabric.  The true protagonist of this fresh and inclusive new Capsule is our resin-treated PRISMA code 01203/642 top-quality pima yarn 80/80 realised with 100% cotton, to which a bio-based membrane is applied and on which a fluorocarbon free treatment (a state-of-the-art waterproof ecological treatment) is carried out. Thus, a waterproof technical fabric for clothing is obtained, that, despite its high performance, presents a soft and round hand, perfect in springtime. Art. 01203/642  PRISMA BIO FLU.FREE MEMBRANE - 100% Cotton + biobased membrane - width: cm 142/145 - weight: 150m2 +/-5% 215mtl Characteristics Its waterproof effect lasts over time Fluorine freeResistant to several washings Good breathabilityIt dries in the airSoft and round handHigh comfortIdeal for outdoor clothes and sportswear  The new Pontex Collection is inclusive from all points of view: each proposed fabric for clothing is intended for a versatile use and all its aspects can be customised depending on the functionality demanded for the final item of clothing.  All finishing operations on the resin-treated fabrics for clothing of the Pontex Collection are made in Italy. “The concept of eco-responsibility, in all regards, is the key focus of the company reflection. It is worthless to reaffirm that this historical period imposes us to rethink the production methods, with our resin treatment we have made another step forward for a more sustainable fashion and to respect the environment that surrounds us. The company focus remains that of providing our customers with a wide selection of high-range and customisable fabrics for clothing, developed in Italy, at a competitive price."Letizia Ferretti, CEO Pontex    Discover the rest of the Collection Spring Summer 2024 navigate_next
