Pratesi’s New Look in Linens

Pratesi, the renowned Italian linen company established more than a century ago, reinvented its classic bedding with its new Pratesi 2.0 collection. It features 12 slightly more contemporary styles, including a wrinkle-free set called Infinito, made from 100 percent Italian linen ($1,200 for a queen-size set, $1,300 for a king-size set). The company’s chairman, Federico Pratesi, says his favorites from the new collection are the indigo and burgundy China jacquard, made of a jacquard that is composed of 12 different colored dyed threads to create a silklike effect. The look was inspired by Federico Pratesi’s expansive collection of scarf ties, which he highlights in the China jacquard scarf sham ($210 each), with a decorative swatch of fabric that wraps around the edge of the pillow the way the tie wraps around the neck. Pratesi 2.0 ranges from $1,200 to $1,500 and will be available online, and at the Pratesi store at Melrose Place in Los Angeles, ABC Carpet & Home in New York City, and Lane Crawford in Hong Kong.
