Milano Unica Autumn 09

Along with a host of play-safe colours the Milan textiles shows suggested a repeat performance for autumn 09 with checks, florals and painterly prints all appearing in abundance.

Buyers’ views

British mills are becoming better to work with. The ones that are surviving are working with top-end designers and they know how to work with designers to create the look that is needed. That makes them more flexible.

Frederik Willems, head of design, Gieves and Hawkes

We are looking for interesting blends and lighter weights are important in a global market when you are looking for sales in different markets. Price is a big pressure now and we have to make sure that we source very carefully.

James Wilson, senior product manager, Dunhill

We have come here for suiting fabrics and we have seen some good sharkskins and more textured fabrics. We will use them for a cleaner look, basic and dark.

Dan Perna, men’s designer and Kim Strobino, fabric director, JCrew
