1 SHOES WITH A TWIST
Baldinini, footwear producer known for its style and quality since 1910, presents an Autumn/Winter 2017-18 collection inspired by the contemporary man, with multi-faceted elegance and a propensity for classic lines, but with a twist. From tie Oxford shoes to moccasins to sneakers, Baldinini shoes are characterised by a chromatic palette that ranges from dark grey to violet to green and often utilising innovative textures treated by hand. The key theme in the collection is a forest inspired camouflage print, details that give life to elegance without rules.
2 TECHNOLOGY AND ECO-FABRIC
American Vintage, a casual French men’s apparel brand, will once again present a new collection at this season’s PITTI UOMO 91. There are three predominant fabrics in the A/W 17-18 collection, each with unique characteristics: Modal, a cellulose extract; Supima, baptised as “the cashmere of cotton”; and Tencel, a fibre made from eucalyptus; three elements that demonstrate an approach to simple and authentic beauty thanks to the use of natural fibres.
3 QUILTED, OF COURSE
In their jackets this season, Husky re-elaborates quilted themes, offering them in a modern take in a broad range of styles and “must-have” garments characteristic of the brand. Converging the characteristics of the classic raincoat and windbreaker, the brand gives life to a new model that is incomparable in functionality and lightness.
4 ALWAYS FIT
Lumberjack‘s official debut at Pitti Immagine Uomo, the Florentine event is the ideal stage to present new winter collections dedicated to the men’s fashion universe. For Lumberjack the undisputed star of the collection will be the Houston style, sneakers made for free time, perfectly meshing together the urban and outdoor lifestyle. Houstons are available in suede, nubuck or in a waterproof version in a palette of dark colours including an ultra elegant navy blue.
5 SECRET INSIDE
This season Cividini surprises us in the truest sense of the word, in fact, the Autumn/Winter 2017-18 collection is just waiting to be discovered. “Secret inside” is the concept around which each of the garments was designed, engineering and manufactured. Sweaters that have one appearance from the outside, hide a second soul if you look from the inside. Fine fabrics and intense colours make this layering “game” possible, arising from the coexistence of two personalities in one single garment.
6 CREATIVITY MADE IN KOREA
Protagonist at Pitti Uomo 91, are Korean brands with a special project called CONCEPT KOREA, that will take centre stage on 11 January, 2017 in the Dogana space in the Tuscan capital. With the intention of bringing Made In Korea fashion to light, two Korean brands will walk the Florentine runways thanks to government agency KOCCA which supports Korean creativity. The two brands are MUUET(TE) by BYUNGMUN SEO and ORDINARY PEOPLE. The first, founded in 2012 by the design duo Byungmun Seo and Jina Um, has a futuristic but relaxed style that undoubtedly celebrates the art of layering. While the second, designed by Jang Hyeong Cheol, devotes its creativity to a curated aesthetic, tailor-made with exquisite attention to detail.
7 EVERYDAY ELEGANCE
Refined and sought after garments by Siviglia for Autumn/Winter 2017-18; the attention to detail and high quality fabrics bring bespoke tailoring to every day life, in a balance between good looks and comfort. The now-famous colourful dyed pants, the jacquards created from nearly unperceivable geometric designs that move with the fabric, the miniature playful prints that bring style back to neckwear and the wools with a soft, warm hand are the foundation of Siviglia’s three capsules: Heritage, Clou and White.
