The colour palette, between off-white and charcoal is uplifting and sensual: soft yellow, pale blue, mint milk, pink, lilac, light orange, sage, tobacco, and cocoa. An all-leather look is red: trousers and shirt.
Colour blocks knitted in different cotton, linen, silk, and wool yarns are balanced to compose precious, iconic knitwear. Graphic elements appear throughout the collection: a large diagonal white stripe crosses the front of a soft wool mélange shirt-jacket. Connections are sharp, detailed, textured, tactile. The conventional becomes unconventional: a wheat-pasted shop advert is turned into a pattern embroidered allover a field jacket and overall, or into individual artworks, unconventionally placed and exploded in scale.A reference to the city, to art, to the power of looking and finding beauty in the mundane. The inspiration is the street, a detail, disposable, the creation is rare and precious.
Strong colours, large pockets, contrasting copper zippers, a cheetah print on a brushed wool pullover, scarves in fleecy pure silk, and jewels - silver necklaces, brooches, ear cuffs, and earrings - give all looks - and us- extra personality and an edge.
Lines, movement, and touch are equalised. Every look is unique. Japanese wool jackets, shirt-jackets and coats are straight and voluminous. Over-dyed cotton and linen flight suits, with removable sleeves, and comfortable utility trousers are worn under one-and-a-half breasted tailored overcoats.
A canvas and suede two-colour enlarged backpack, a squared tote bag in natural vegetable tanned leather, tactile and plump waist-bags, and supple leather totes with rivet joinery, are all both functional and luxurious, complementing the spirit of the collection and completing the silhouette.
Shoes are archetypical - army boots, desert boots and sneakers at their most essential, but ingeniously reconstructed. They strongly root the silhouette, accentuating the urban attitude and honesty of the collection.
