Élitis is based in Toulouse, in southwestern France, a warm, convivial Mediterranean atmosphere that stimulates exchanges of ideas and creativity. An in-house creative team of ten designers focuses on research to generate collections that are always innovative and at the same time are linked to the tradition.
The designers come from the worlds of art, fashion and advertising. The create the collections by taking inspiration from travels, shapes and colors. Nothing comes from a preset drawing or design; everything takes form from objects, photographs, colors, scenarios. Moodboards are organized for each collection, as a starting point for creative activities throughout the year.
The Elitis outdoor lines feature strong, elegant fabrics. The latest entry is Farniente, a fabric with a vintage tone based on geometric motifs that interact with a new solid hue with a crafted, linen-effect look. A high-performance technical fiber, but with a natural appearance. Available in four patterns in coordinated tones, and four yarns for contrasting colors.
In its collections, Elitis also utilizes the Lontano fabric which has the look of an indoor product, but with outdoor strength. Lontano brings together solid colors and geometric motifs; its jacquard weaves match and harmonize with a game of geometric weaves using two colored yarns.
