   SEPTEMBER  2016 -  TO TAKE ACTIVE ACTION IN COMBATING VIOLENCE AGAINST WOMEN MAGLIFICIO RIPA IS SUPPORTING THE PROJECT “A SLAM DUNK AGAINST      VIOLENCE. A BASKETBALL SCORE IN ITS FAVOUR” 


     

TO TAKE ACTIVE ACTION IN COMBATING VIOLENCE AGAINST WOMEN MAGLIFICIO RIPA IS SUPPORTING THE PROJECT “A SLAM DUNK AGAINST VIOLENCE. A BASKETBALL SCORE IN ITS FAVOUR” 

“The women’s rights are the responsibility of all human race. To fight against all forms of violence to woman is an obligation of humanity and the empowerment of women’s action signifies the progress of all mankind” (Kofi Annan)

The strong and intense social commitment of Maglificio Ripa continues with another significant project that places the textile company at Spino D’Adda in the forefront for effectively combating violence against women. Based on the ISTAT data (the Italian National Statistical Institute) femicide is performed every three days on an average in Italy. Victims are quite often women that seem to live in nearly perfect harmony but once the house door is closed, all hell breaks out. In 2015, 6.7 million women suffered physical or sexual violence. Last year 128 women were killed in Italy and Lombardy stands out with the highest number of victims.

The project “A SLAM DUNK AGAINST VIOLENCE. A BASKETBALL SCORE IN ITS FAVOUR” aims at opening that house door to allow any woman to regain their own dignity and freedom.

The project plays a leading role by unleashing prevention and awareness-raising actions as well as effective support to protect women who have suffered violence.

“It is a quite remarkable initiative undertaken together with other companies throughout our territory – says Luca Bianco, Sole Administrator at Maglificio Ripa Spa – and which deals with a topic which is currently the case: violence against women. The project has been launched by the basketball company Pallacanestro Crema and to the benefit of the Comunità Mamma-Bambino “G.Colbert” (Mother-Child Community) which has been socially committed since 1997 by specifically supporting women victims of violence. The system is quite simple and exciting. Each basketball score performed by the basket team players in the next year championship will be rewarded with a donation and considering that our athletes are very much skilled we are very much confident that an amount will be reached to be able to support the association actions against violence. And that’s not all. This initiative is going to involve both the primary and the secondary school with related activities for making students aware of this important topic”.

Pallacanestro Crema - First Team

This sports association was born in 1989 and plays in the ‘Serie B’ National Championship, the third step in the hierarchy of domestic basketball league. Thanks to their well-known social commitment, the team became immediately available for the project. The sponsor logos on the team player shirts are going to be replaced with the project logo. The athletes will therefore convey the message of the project at a national level by crying out: stop the violence against women. Furthermore, each basketball score performed by the team during the championship is going to be rewarded with a sum paid by the team themselves to support the activities undertaken by the “G. Colbert” Mother-Child Community.

 “G. Colbert” Mother-Child Community

It is a residential community where women and children in distress can experience support, protection, care and safety. It is an Educational Community providing 24-hour assistance and up to 10 accommodations. The community staff are currently coordinating the so-called “Con-tatto” (“with-tact”) network on the territory against mistreatment of women while running 3 second-level emergency structures up to total 22 accommodations; they also collaborate with the Social Emergency Service in the city of Crema and provide 2 accommodations for women victims of mistreatment.

THE NEW COLLECTION BY MAGLIFICIO RIPA


     

The new Skin collection by Maglificio Ripa is pure concentrated energy, a quite revised supply of new and original contents resulting from a marvelous designing work; a touch of rare elegance for the finest fashion gourmets.

The new collection by Maglificio Ripa could be summed up in three main words.

EXPLOSION: in its widest significance of colours, emotions and shapes. It has been developed for the Splash beachwear range by Maglificio Ripa: soft and swathing fabrics, slippery but still full of personality, matt, gloss and satin, to show a joyful and playful approach of the full collection which looks lively and never too ordinary as well as often daring but devoid of useless and unnecessary digressions.Patterns are dense and full of energy, sometimes even extreme to enhance shapes and suntan. Floral, dreamlike, geometric and optical prints are featured by a unique and exclusive definition that lets them jump from delicate watercolours to the strong and bright Chagall colour hues.

IMPLOSION: it is an internal explosion featured by concentrated matter within a little space; it has been conceived fot the Skin range by Maglificio Ripa where order is restrained to a limited universe. Little pieces of jewelry featured by a geometric and precious style. Netting backgrounds with sophisticated tiny relief. Soft and bold colours.

INTUITION: all ranges by Maglificio Ripa are here involved, Dress and Sport included. In a melting-pot-like universe all fabrics need to be developed for several applications: i.e., a kind of sport fabric can fit underwear or beachwear thanks to its catchy and surging hand.Intuition involves tactile sensations too, as if resulting from touching a fabric that feels warm, cold, soft, slippery, full-bodied….

   JULY  2014 - THE LAUNCH OF LIGHT 2.0 BY MAGLIFICIO RIPA: THE HD-PRINTED FABRIC


     

After several months’ studying and careful and constant designing, the new-born fabric by Maglificio Ripa has been launched and has made its official debut into the universe of printed fabrics: Light 2.0, a kind of high-definition evolution of the famous Light, that has been and still is so popular all over the world.

The Light Icons family has been today enriched by the addition of a cutting-edge and revolutionary proposal. Light 2.0 guarantees a high-definition print, a unique and supreme colour performance, a fresh and silky touch as well as UV- and chlorine resistance.

“We had been working for this result for  a long time – says Luca Bianco, Managing Director of Maglificio Ripa – and finally we succeeded in achieving it thanks to our premium Style and Design Department, head by Terry Charles and Antonella Serena, both boasting a wide experience in the field of printed fabrics. This is what we are going to offer: an harmoniously balanced and never too ordinary collection, a unique and prompt service and above all special assistance available for exclusivity agreements”.

    JANUARY  2014 - THE NEW WELLNESS FABRICS AGAINST SKIN BEAUTY FLAWS ARE COMING TO LIFE


     

A new generation of fabrics for underwear and sportswear, capable of both removing skin beauty flaws and granting body wellbeing, is being born from both the experience of Maglificio Ripa, a leading Italian company which has been active in the textile field since 1952 and the technology unleashed by Nilit, a manufacturing company from Israel specialized in the production of polyamide yarns. The fabrics are made by a polyamide microfiber that turns the heat of the human body into infrared rays by exploiting the properties of the metallic additive contained in its yarn. Once reflected onto the human epidermis, the infrared rays generate some healthy heat that can fight the ravages of time, perform a defatiguing action while favoring skin elasticity and firmness. Not only would this microfiber therefore conceal beauty flaws but, at the same time, it would actively fix them. The test performed so far, have validated this outcome and confirmed the ongoing efficacy of the fiber properties despite repeated washing.

“It’s a project we strongly believe in – says Luca Bianco, Managing Director at Maglificio Ripa – and which we are actually investing on, in view of the future technology, because today more yesterday, he who stops is lost. We will and we must give our customers highly innovative products committed to the fashion world for the purpose of successfully serving it”.

    FEBRUARY  2013 -DRESS AND SKIN, CLOTHING AND UNDERWEAR FOR SPRING/SUMMER 2014


     

Three are the Spring/Summer 2014 collections by Maglificio Ripa: clothing, underwear and outerwear.

Dress

The encounter between innovation and pure trend is nearly exasperated with the use of superfine, raw and yarn-dyed cotton fabrics as well as the use of the most precious viscose and the introduction of new artificial, natural and mixed fibres while including new developments of yarn-dyed fibres. Within this universe, the launch of a new high quality stretch basic fabric collection is being studied with the purpose of offering customers a significant alternative to imported mass products. Colours: the summer classical ones, from fruity to pastel up to the light hints of the “fluo” ranges.

Skin

As to underwear, plenty of room will be dedicated on one hand to jacquards and very fine solids with never-too-ordinary geometrical effects. On the other hand, the Shapewear supply will become wider and stronger thanks to even more performing fabrics. Jacquards will be featured by lots of micro-patterns made out of sophisticated design in blends of several various yarns.

The Outerwear range, still included in the Skin collection, will stand for a very connection between underwear and clothing: a sort of styling bridge, an all-embracing trait d’union. Both the natural fibres with their new and cutting-edge yarns as well as the various kinds of finishing, in their sweet and traditional attributes up to the most exasperated treatments, will play a starring role.

    MAGLIFICIO RIPA SPONSOR OF A MAIN EVENT Uno Stradivari per il Duomo


    NOVEMBER 2012 - SPLASH, SUMMER BEACHWEAR COLLECTION 2014


   

 

The Summer 2014 Splash collection is a multi-vitaminic and energizing collection. The colour range looks impressive: a striking effect with the fluo hues and a softer impact with the most refined pastels. Colours and lights borrowed from nature, shapes and movements revised through exclusive techniques in the field, which contribute to creating a first-rate and unusual supply. Liveliness and movement are the key words. The design moves around the most basic colour groups as well as the most contemporary and fashionable ones. The collection is made up of seven important themes: print bases, polyester and polyamide for traditional and ink-jet prints; plain colours, in a wide standard colour range and the possibility to customize colour “per sample”; piece-dyed jacquards to brand and customize bases to their utmost; yarn-dyed stripes that lend themselves to ratio patterns and colouring as required; the bestsellers, an exclusive range of the most important items that shaped the history of Maglificio Ripa; yarn-dyed jacquards with their three-dimensional effects and unusual hands; the new linings in their innovative range to complete the collection. The evolution of some classical items such as Berlino needs also to be pointed out, where new colours and patterns are featured thanks to the introduction of new brighter yarns by unreachable hands. The high-ratio pinstripes look unconventional and unusual since presented on textured bases. A beachwear collection featured by a sense of movement thanks to the several jacquard patterns developed on different yarn fineness (28 and 44).

     JULY 2012  -  MAGLIFICIO RIPA: 60 YEARS OF INNOVATION FOR THE FASHION THAT MATTERS.


    

MAGLIFICIO RIPA: 60 YEARS OF INNOVATION FOR THE FASHION THAT MATTERS. A SUCCESSFUL ITALIAN STORY

" Continuity gives us roots; change gives us branches, letting us stretch and grow and reach new heights”

Pauline R. Kezer

The worldwide textile system is changing at lightning speed. Somebody comes after and somebody else comes before. Maglificio Ripa has been known and appreciated as a qualified and reference partner of the most advanced companies inside the international fashion system. The recurrent investments in cutting-edge technologies, the passion and superior specialization of the working team as well as the top-ranking customer service make Maglificio Ripa both an outstanding hub of excellence worldwide and an ambassador of the most distinguished Italian textile culture in the world.

SKIN, UNDERWEAR COLLECTION FALL/WINTER 2013/2014

Inside the 2013/2014 Fall/Winter Skin collection, the shapewear area is definitely the most interesting among the most innovating areas. The most sophisticated technologies and the collaboration with Invista have given rise to a new generation of fabrics that have been conceived for both a total comfort and a sculpting and shaping effect. It is no longer and not only a medium-term trend but rather a theme which, from now on, will be always contemplated by the collections as a strong demand for it is there and some further innovation is still expected. There are seven Invista-certified types of fabrics which can stand for a Shape Survival Kit addressed to more discriminating tastes. On the other hand, the collection has become “natural” by offering the finest cotton, even blended with nylon, to be employed in delicate fabrics marked by the skilfully moderate use of the colour as well as the never banal or ordinary patterns. Maglificio Ripa is also developing some stretched and rigid jacquard with a lace effect, to be either be customized and branded.

DRESS, CLOTHING COLLECTION FALL/WINTER 2013/2014

The collection is enhanced with uncommon colours and materials and the unmistakable patterns alternate smooth with uneven surfaces to create shimmering textures imbued with a post-modern taste while bringing out new trendy nuances. Richness and simplicity are mainly featuring the collection and making it extremely relevant to modern times. Wool and cotton interchange and create uncommon effects, featured by simple and endless charm. Microjaquard, striped, rippled, textured and perforated textured patterns are very much close to the trendy meshed effect as well as the crochet macramé: everything has been developed with wool-blended yarns, either raw and dyed. New ribbed stripes with different ratios have been developed with natural fibres, along with new textured fabrics designed for the most contemporary shirting, both by cotton and nylon.

SPLASH, BEACHWEAR COLLECTION SUMMER 2014

Colours and light have been borrowed from nature, shapes and movements have been newly developed thanks to exclusive technologies in the field which contribute to creating a quite unique and premium collection. Liveliness and movement are the key words. The design moves from and turns round more basic as well as more current and fashion colours. The evolution of some classical items, such as Berlino, deserves to be pointed out as they have been featured by new patterns and colours with the introduction of new yarns marked by brighter colours and unattainable hands.

Striped patterns with high ratios are out of the ordinary as they have been developed on textured bases.

It is a beachwear collection focussed on movement with various jacquard developed on different thinness values (28 and 44).

      SEPTMEBER 2011   -  MAGLIFICIO RIPA HAS OPTED FOR THE LYCRA® BEAUTY FABRIC FOR ITS SHAPE-IT-UP COLLECTION


     

The shapewear universe is today a quite attractive and crowded space where everybody asserts one’s own genetic formula and endeavours to prove the ownership of the original invention of this very revolution which was unthinkable until a few years ago and which could only sound pharmacy and “smell” of ether. Today shapewear has changed a lot as much as women’s requirements have; shapewear has walked away from counters and “band-aids” and has reached a different living space: the world of fashion and its patterns while becoming glamorous and sometimes romantic, without anyway forgetting its original shaping, controlling and performing features: all-day-long comfort and the guarantee that an inseparable friend is capable of keeping a little body-shaping secret. This is how the Shapewear Revolution has started and Maglificio Ripa, as always, has not waited a single minute on the fence and has chosen the most qualified partner for its project designing: INVISTA. This is the very origin of the Shape-It-Up range, an exclusive capsule collection which best matches the new world of the LYCRA® beauty fabric to the most typical contents of Maglificio Ripa: a combination of innovation in style and technology as well as comfort and wearability. A key collection developed for garments that enhance the silhouette while offering various body-fitting solutions, from control and light support up to sober elegance and the most daring look.

INVISTA, one of the major producers worldwide of avant-garde fibres and solutions in the textile sector, as well as owner of the LYCRA® fibre trademark, has developed the pioneering LYCRA® beauty fabric platform: an exclusive scientific method to assess and certify both the quality and the performance of these new fabrics, whose new conception is dedicated to the shapewear universe. As proven by an international marketing research commissioned by Invista indeed, 93% of interviewed women consumers have stated that a lingerie purchase is rigorously based on its shaping features too. Today, a real gap has been recorded between the consumers’ demand for shapewear and the very offer by the market. Women consumers wear these garments as if they were very faithful beauty-friends and they would expect them to offer higher comfort, better wearability and superior shaping features, in order to always feel safe and comfortable. To make shapewear more and more consistent with the consumers’ requirements, the right fabric becomes essential and inalienable. This is the reason why a scientifically determined scale of values has been established to define the ability of shaping fabrics to combine shaping performance with total comfort. Special standards have been established to select the products whose best performance features may grant them the title of LYCRA® beauty fabrics. The fabrics used for the Shape-it-up collection by Maglificio Ripa have passed all checks and tests and have obtained the relevant certifications. Functional features, aesthetics and performance provide for their very intimate key factors.

      JULY 2011 - ILIGHT BY MAGLIFICIO RIPA IS BORN THE FAMOUS LIGHT: TODAY EVEN SMARTER


  
   

Lycra® fibre which has set the new swimwear, sportswear and beachwear.standards. Thanks to the new ILIGHT fabrics, aesthetically superior swimsuits can be accomplished, whose perfect wearability and shape-fitting can last longer without shrinking or loosening, while introducing some different and better performances in terms of ten-time higher resistance to chlorinated water compared to standard items. Getting in touch with chlorate indeed, all elastomeric fibres loose their shape-recovering features, thus jeopardizing the item life-cycle. The ILIGHT fabrics have been conceived to improve performances and wearability of bathing suits while ensuring high protection against damages caused by both UV-rays and unsaturated acids contained in sun creams and oils. Thanks to the ILIGHT project therefore, Maglificio Ripo does not give up constantly developing and improving technical standards, which aim at creating a smarter, mature, innovative and all-around Italian product.

Aesthetically perfect, durable, high-performing and better wearable

On the occasion of “Interfiliere” fair in July and of “Maredimoda” later in Cannes, the new and long-awaited project, developed by Maglificio Ripa in collaboration with Invista, will be presented: it is about the new collection of beachwear fabrics ILIGHT, made with the innovative Xtra Life Lycra® fibre which has set the new swimwear, sportswear and beachwear.standards. Thanks to the new ILIGHT fabrics, aesthetically superior swimsuits can be accomplished, whose perfect wearability and shape-fitting can last longer without shrinking or loosening, while introducing some different and better performances in terms of ten-time higher resistance to chlorinated water compared to standard items. Getting in touch with chlorate indeed, all elastomeric fibres loose their shape-recovering features, thus jeopardizing the item life-cycle. The ILIGHT fabrics have been conceived to improve performances and wearability of bathing suits while ensuring high protection against damages caused by both UV-rays and unsaturated acids contained in sun creams and oils. Thanks to the ILIGHT project therefore, Maglificio Ripo does not give up constantly developing and improving technical standards, which aim at creating a smarter, mature, innovative and all-around Italian product.

“Our objective has consisted in supplying highly technological and innovative products since always, in order to make them different from mass and ordinary products. – says Luca Bianco, Managing Director of Maglificio Ripa – An exhaustive study was started some years ago, which lead us to accomplish a new generation of fabrics, whose “extreme” performances let us call them ILIGHT, as a token of gratitude towards the famous Light 2050, 2056, 2069 and “Acquario,” which have been so much successful in these last years by fulfilling our high expectations. After all, the one who stops, is lost, especially in the textile sector”.
