Swimsuits and bikinis. Clothes and sportswear. All female. It is Cotone, a made in Italy brand launched in 2007 by Greta Mariani, radio speaker. Each model, designed by Mariani, offers garments to wear on the beach, or in the pool, made with one of the best known natural materials in the world: cotton.
Lycra is the fabric par excellence when it comes to beachwear: it is easy to wear, because it is elastic and tightens the body, and dries quickly. But it is synthetic, deriving from the union between polyurethane and polyester. These are not really healthy elements in direct contact with the skin. But not only: unfortunately, to make them come to the use of petroleum derivatives, however, few are still aware of it and information is scarce in this regard.
Cotone takes another path and is one of the few Italian companies to exploit the versatility of the fiber in question to embellish a beachwear and sportswear, since every top is also possible to wear it for jogging or to pair it with a pair of denim shorts . There are three concepts on which Mariani conceives the spring-summer 2019 collection: Bra PushUp, color blocking and the American neckline. In fact, from an aesthetic point of view, the colors are vibrant, fresh and reminiscent of the silhouette of US pin-ups, icons of style and charm.
Without annoying seams, devoid of chemical contamination, the brand is part of that current state-of-the-art company, which does not rely on alien technologies but on what nature has to offer. After all, the consumption of plastic is increasingly considerable, just think of the recent forecasts that seabed should be completely covered with waste of this material by 2050. This is probably an exaggerated estimation, but we are not far from being able to verify.
