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.
