About Roberto Collina
Roberto Collina has been telling his story of Made in Italy excellence for over 60 years, thinking, creating and making all his knitwear-based collections in Italy. Today, more than ever, he celebrates the quality, design, product process and panache of his jumpers that have written and still write a significant part of Italian pret à porter history, creating a new frontier in Made in Italy style.
A world-renowned family brand that started out in a small knitwear workshop with connected school, managed by the Collina family, where innovative machines were used to create the first jumpers for the German and North European markets soon after the Second World War. The small workshop soon became the harmonious centre of an area that was changing its production vocation to become the heart of Italian knitwear system. Amidst technological innovations and creative twists that led the company to work on commissions for important Italian fashion houses, in the early 1980s, the young Roberto Collina, the founders’ son, decided to lend his name to a capsule collection of 10 men’s jumpers that were presented at Pitti Uomo. This hailed the company’s official debut in the international fashion world. From this moment on, the success of this brand that encapsulates contemporary artistic ideas with authentic heritage was consolidated, turning it into a pret à porter brand that focused on quality, beauty and continuous research. In 1990, Roberto Collina launched his first women’s collection and the brand – which up to that moment had been a synonym of male fashion – also transmitted the poetic style and exceptional quality of Italian production in its feminine essence too. The Made in Italy concept is found in a high-bracket product, characterised by the use of quality materials and noble fibres – mohair, cashmere, 'alpaca, 'angora, camel hair, super-light merino wool, silk and ice cotton-, respecting his own craftsman origins and each season interpreting the sector’s trends.
Now present in France, Belgium, Holland and Germany, Roberto Collina has confirmed his success overseas over the years with a growing interest in Asian countries such as Japan and South Korea: a success guaranteed by the application of the most advanced technologies in artisan production, which consolidates the brand’s international profile.
Today, Roberto Collina is a young company that employees more than 50 people at its Crevalcore site, half of whom are 35 years of age and under and are women, and who continue this Made in Italy story successfully, investing in new generations in order to continue a professional heritage that is slowly disappearing. The very complexity of the knitwear system and the difficulty in finding professional figures have driven the company to create real training programmes aimed at creating staff specialised in studying and checking the firm’s creations step by step, from weaving to finishing, running through production and quality control, and following each step of the production process directly, right up to shipment. The company is a real knitwear microcosm that also involves specific training programmes that have culminated in recent years in the Knitwear Master’s course “Creative Knitwear Design”, the only one in the entire world to be recognised and carried out together with the Accademia di Costume e Moda in Rome, and with the first scholarship for the next academic year. This is a patronage that aims to overcome difficulties linked to the lack of professional training in the knitwear sector, which is technologically complex, full of stimuli and work opportunities, and which makes Roberto Collina more than “just” a pret a porter company, but also a real incubator of talent.
