The collection integrates sustainability both in the design process and in the fabrics; combining CAD technology and traditional cutting methods, resulting in minimal fabric waste. Torretta highlights the organic Japanese cottons and wools, present with the objective of raising awareness of respect for the environment through both eco-fabrics and slow fashion: creating wardrobes that are timeless creations.
Twin designs, coats, jackets, and trousers in twill fabrics in neutral tones or navy blue pressed wool, combined with meticulous tailoring to survive seasons and trends, are the basis of the collection.
