From the New York Times, a memoir of working in a Italian textile firm, Lanificio T. O. Nesi & Figli.
“It’s periwinkle, Edoardo,” he says, “and the client wants this color in Cabora.”
It was our finest cloth for overcoats, Cabora, a high-sheen fabric made up of a blend of superfine Australian wool, cashmere and angora.
“There’s just one small problem, though. The color comes from a photograph.”
“From a photograph?”
“Yes, and I’m looking at it now. It looks like the ’80s, in London, and a beautiful girl is wearing a beautiful periwinkle overcoat. The client says that it reminds him of a scene from a film by Antonioni. He wants us to recreate that overcoat, in that color.”
