SUNNEI FEATURES MICHELE FOTI
SUNNEI FEATURES MICHELE FOTI is the second chapter of the project, this time telling the process behind the pieces created as collaboration between SUNNEI and ALBIATE 1830.
The latter is the most youthful brand belonging to the Albini group: a renown Italian excellence since 1876 which has been standing out in terms of prestigious quality and innovation applied to the production of Made In Italy shirt fabrics.
The encounter of these two universes gave birth to a special capsule collection defined by the use of white fabrics employed both for womenswear and menswear.

In particular, this capsule collection is composed by cargo pants for men and loose fit pants for women, a dress and various interpretations - both for menswear and womenswear - of the protagonist of this collaboration, that is to say the shirt.
Indeed, a white shirt was the starting point of the project: a simple item that has become the symbol of a much more complex and articulate collaboration.
SUNNEI took ALBIATE 1830 textile tradition and know-how and delved into the world of poplin resulting in the creation of an oversize shirt developed as one-size product for women and men.
For this project, video maker and photographer Michele Foti followed the steps which lead to a SUNNEI x ALBIATE 1830 shirt through a video whose point of view enhances the care and hard work standing behind the final product. The record starts from the making of the ALBIATE 1830 fabric in their own factory and finishes moving to Vicenza where the production of SUNNEI pieces takes place.
