John Varvatos Fall Winter 2012 Men Fashion Show

For Fall/Winter 2012 Collection John Varvatos was inspired by the city of New York, with its seamless juxtaposition of the old and the new: a place where Central Park and the Guggenheim, the Chrysler building and the Statue of Liberty melt into one, creating a unique urban texture.
Silhouette softly precise. The look is clean and nonchalant, elegant and easy. The accent is on single pieces as building blocks of the outfits: trademark layering leaves way to a restrained take on dressing up that is soulful as opposed to stark.
Jackets and outerwear textured and light. Reverse cutaway jackets and coats with leather details completely devoid of any filling create a smooth, dynamic line. Short coats have the easy softness of a knit, but are in fact tailored. Suit jackets, either single or double breasted, button up asymmetrically, with a sophisticated effect. Subtle details alter the aspect of wardrobe staples: a zipper running along the raglan of a trench coat sleeve, grommets on sleeve cuffs, a leather multi wrap belt on the pea coat. Vest add a gentlemanly touch.
Knitwear chunky yet weightless. Knitwear is the key element of the pure and individual look. Sweaters turn into a way of being and are used either as outerwear or not: cold-dyed wool and cashmere jumpers and zippered coats, tricot short coats in mixes of fine and chunky yarns, hombre alpaca sweaters; light knitted jackets in morphing patterns.
Trousers relaxed and easy. Tailored pants have a new line: the articulated knee and a small tab at the hem allows them to be worn easily inside or outside of boots.
Leather roughly precious. Long or curly haired burnished shearling is used for short coats and vest worn on top suits. Brushed calfskin blusons with a pony skin effect have a precise, militaristic allure.
Shirts elongated and elegant. Mean to be worn outside of trousers, even with suits and vest, wing collared shirts are longer on the front, with a reverse cutaway effect, creating a soulful counterpoint to the look.

Frankie Morello Fall Winter 2012-2013 Men Fashion Show


A journey, a true meditation tour, from evening to morning, from materialism to simplicity, from the city to the Himalayas.
A meditative and mystical journey to rediscover lightness and purity, abandoning the attachment to material goods. A strong presentation, which aims at expressing the desire to alter the human mindset and approach to life. From urban to awareness, lightness, purification. The collection is divided in this way: into three parts, the stages through which the Frankie Morello man must pass in order to achieve liberty.
The first is an expression of the attachment to material goods, using colours and materials reminiscent of the city. It represents the city man in his daily life, following the rules of urbanisation .
The central stage shows the human being beginning to feel the urgency for change; an evolution which occurs step by step with the start of internal journey and newfound awareness of himself. Here, then, even the colours, stitching and materials start to diversify and take on different lightness. Lastly, the third and final stage, in which lightness becomes the lifestyle to be pursued and the abandonment of material things is realised. Spirituality is the star of this story, taking man almost back to nudity; a symbol of transformation and mark the transition through the materials, appliqués and colours, giving a clear image of the metamorphosis, until finally achieving hypothetical self-awareness. The presentation is accompanied by a live performance from Burger Girl, a musical project and alter-ego of Benjamin Dukhan, an upcoming eclectic French artist which, with his “electro-bitch” universe, combines toughness and sensuality with romance and spirituality. His performance accompanies the metamorphosis, through a journey that also becomes musical.
The show also includes the presence of Giuseppe Sartori, one of the most interesting figures on the Italian theatrical scene, part of the famous Ricci e Forte company ( www.ricciforte.com).
The theatre represented has become famous and is a source of inspiration for various other contemporary entities: filled with flawless, clear images, constructed in meticulous, unsettling, colourful, sometimes even indecent theatrical architectures.
The artist will perform his best interpretation of the metamorphosis of the human through the meditation tour narrated by the collection.

Corneliani Fall Winter 2012 Men's Collection

The Great Gatsby: the power of style

A cashmere trench coat tied at the waist over an extremely elegant strictly white double-breasted suit. In anticipation of the remake of The Great Gatsby, Corneliani re-inteprets the elegance of the great Don Juan with the power of a contemporary sartorial style and meticulous attention to details, starting with the bag and shoes to match in tweed, Prince of Wales and cashmere.
A touch of high style that reinforces the collection’s philosophy: a contemporary “custom-made” tailoring to focus upon that will win the hearts of consumer and emphasize the brand’s point of origin.
For the Fall-Winter 2012 collection, the must have is the cashmere knitted suit that highlights a style which is increasingly relaxed, confident and unstructured while still observing tradition. Double-breasted models are more slim-fitted and less formal; topcoats are long and fluid; the contours of suits are unquestionably subtler.
Optical and the “new” black with a glossy woollen tone that create a luminous chromatic effect.
For those special touches of eccentricity: a sheared mink jacket – as soft and light as velvet – for a very special evening, a knit and fur poncho or a sport-chic heavy jacket.
For freezing temperatures, patchwork sheepskin with fabric details: easy wear that is bold, informal and sophisticated.
