PLATFORMS FOR VALUE
ECO-FASHION, COMMITMENT TO ETHICAL AND SUSTAINABLE STYLE
For C&S caring for the environment is not just a “fad”, but rather a constant commitment to eco-fashion which has always been part of the company’s DNA. The centrality of its transparency concept is paramount for all C&S projects, thus resulting in virtuous and sustainable processes. This goes from careful checking of raw materials – organic and recycled cotton, regenerated cellulose fibres, hemp, carded wool to mention but a few – to the fine-tuning of every style project in order to deliver jeans which are 100% organic and environment friendly, dedicated to the most forward-looking clients. The QR code technology allows for monitoring garment production all along the value supply chain and, being aware of the impact each company has on society and the environment, C&S works for ethics and solidarity in fashion, where beautiful also means good. At the centre there is always the person, respecting and enhancing first of all the workers who every day contribute to the company’s success, and ensuring compliance with the most stringent quality, health, ecological and environmental requirements, as well as meeting the SA8000 certification (Social Accountability) international standard, which ensures respect for human and workers’ rights, protection against child labour in a safe and healthy workplace.
FIT EVOLUTION PROJECT, INSPIRATIONS THAT BREAK THE MOULD
The ability to evolve is a result of the strength to go beyond traditional patterns, to write new and exciting rules for style. In a market where the fit-fabric combination almost always seems to be pre-packaged and standardized, C&S never ceases to test new matchings which are able to surprise and provide unique sources of inspiration; all of this is done through careful preliminary research aimed at completing all detailed calculations of sizes and ideal returns, suitable for various comfort and fit levels, thanks to a team of modelists and analysts who study fabrics, fit and treatments. Depending on the specific requirement, the C&S staff is able to offer a complete package, really on a turnkey basis, which ranges from style creation to the choice of raw materials and washings, or – on the other hand – a service targeted only to a few individual steps, always presenting collection proposals which never fail to consider different target prices, with an approach combining creativity and pragmatism.
MADEINITALY 101%, FOR EXCELLENCE ALL ALONG THE SUPPLY CHAIN
The MADEINITALY101% platform testifies to all the dedication on the part of C&S as regards safeguarding Italian know-how. It is a recognition of the irreplaceable value of a production entirely based in Italy for an ethical choice which rediscovers quality over and above convenience, as well as safeguarding the intrinsic and marked creative and style sensitivity which is an acknowledged feature of Italian fashion worldwide.
Raw materials, production processes, partners and suppliers are carefully identified among major Italian brand names, always focusing on a short, efficient and highly performing supply chain.
