What did we like?
The use of colour. The new total tonal look reduces the definition of the wearer, everything appears more fluid, magically makes us look slimmer.
Suits to wear at home. Loose, hyper-contemporary with echoes of past shapes, the new suits are constructed to be as comfortable as tracksuits.
Ultra light, padded jackets. Made of the lightest possible wool and lightly padded, these jackets combine barely-there volume with a feeling of ease and relaxation.
Real and fake knitwear. Knitwear imitates fabric, fabric imitates knitwear: another search for wearability, comfort and stretch textures.
Distorted patterns. Prince of Wales, tie motifs, very traditional geometries: everything comes alive, is distorted, and loses definition, trying to surprise the eye without exaggerating.
Total Tweed. Traditional tweeds become new basics, the shapes and patterns perfectly hybridize with shirts, everything is imbued with the look of tradition and the search for comfort.
Grungy Tweed. Grandparents’ tartans, aged or second-hand looks, oversized coats, flared trousers in the humble colours of the classic drapery. A more playful and personal version of streetwear.
Linus’ Blankets. Voluminous, bulky, soft. Protective and cosy textiles create shells that are actually as tender as a hug.
Confidence: we saw a lot of it at the fashion shows, so we put it on the list, in last place even if it should be in the first. Let us rely on the future, which will give us back the joy of the concrete, of physical closeness, and the desire to party.
