One more time - Monochromatic blues in Florence
Another set of pictures from Pitti Uomo (from day 1) courtesy of TSBmen and A&H Magazine, shot by Neil Watson.
I’ve never been much of fan of all monochromatic looks but decided to go full blue-on-blue-on-blue for the first day of the fair. Double-breasted suit from SuitSupply, denim shirt (mtm) by Schoffa and mto-tie by Arcuri Cravatte via Linkson Jack. The only things bringing some contrasting colors are the pocket square from Christian Kimber and Portolio by Ralph Lauren in orange. Shoes are made-to-order pair by Alfred Sargent.

Double-breasted to beat the heat
While Pitti Uomo in Florence I had a chance to do three quick shoots featuring days 1, 2 and 3 with Neil Watson of A&H Magazine. Credit and hat tip to Neil, a dear friend and one of the most talented guys there is for perfectly capturing the details.
Balancing between light and darker shades, wearing a very lightweight G.Abo Napoli double-breasted blazer made of Loro Piana indigo dyed linen, blue-striped Kamakura button-down shirt and Finealta “diversity” cotton slacks. The dark green checked linen tie from Berg&Berg is partly (but not too much) mathched in tones to the string loafers from Carmina. Bracelets by Viola Milano and D.C.I Sweden.

Beach-wear Sunday
Temperature being around 30°C while waking up, there’s basically no other choices than head to the beach.
I’m not sure if there’s any garments that can keep you cool enough in that heat but opt for lighter tones and light, breathable materials such as linen and light-weight cotton. Rivieras slip-ons are one of my favorite summer shoes as they are suitable not just for the beach but to be used in the city as well.
Good book, a nice towel (and maybe some drinks and sunscreen) into the bag and you’re set to go.

Oppermann London just recently launched a new line called "surfaces" which as the name implicates is centered around a duality of surfaces. Bags of the line features tumbled leather from Tärnsjö Garveri in Sweden and a smooth trim leather from Italy combined together resulting as sharp and understated look. 

With a softer leather, the bags are designed to show a more relaxed silhoutte and aesthics than the classics line of the company, but still to keep an elegant and business-oriented appearance. At the moment the Surfaces collection includes a briefcase and a compact weekend bag both in black color. All the products of the line are made in Italy.

As one who has been looking for a new weekender / duffle bag but haven’t found a one that would have been aesthetically pleasing enough but still decently priced I’m personally very much looking forward to check out this collection.

To see more about Oppermann, check out my earlier review about their “Goswell Briefcase” here.

To get the week properly started and go on with the Pitti reviews it’s time for some Isaia goodies.

SS15 - Coral bandana collection

Inspired by and dedicated to the Amalfi Coast and its rich and varied heritage. That’s what the spring and summer 2015 collection of Isaia is about. Color schemes for the season are taken directly from this UNESCO World Heritage site that boasts some of the world’s most beautiful panoramas.

Once again Isaia presents personal and unique designs & impeccable craftsmanship. The collection is as usual colorful and heavily patterned as one would expect of Isaia. In terms of colors there are blue, pink, some grey and yellowish that dominate the selection together with a bunch of turquoise and some green tones to bring in nice variation and accent. In addition various denim washes and indigo-dying has been used throughout the collection including both tailored garments and sports wear. Finally plaid and striped shirts are boldly combined with large plaid jackets and patterned ties. 

Basically it could be said that again Isaia does it as only Isaia can.

For many Luigi Bianchi Mantova of Lubiam is not as well known as LBM1911-brand but the line’s collections for sure has the required characteristics to satisfy the needs of even a more demanding customer looking for pieces to fill one’s business-wardrobe.

Inspiration for the upcoming fall collection arises from 1960’s optical patterns featuring graphic macro checks, madras, micro designs, damier motifs and Prince of Wales-checks in different shades. The color scheme is kept restrained and earthy - making it easy to combine these pieces together. Double-breasted overcoats and suits featuring wool- and cashmere blends together with vests - offered both with matching suits or alone - top off the selection. One of the interesting choices in terms of materials is the intertwining of cotton and wool bouclé yarns that is used to produce a kind of multicolor 3D effect on suits and blazers.

Danish Mismo has established a solid supporter base. And it has happened for a reason. For myself visiting the stand for not just see the collection but also to have a chat with Adam (the co-founder and owner of Mismo) is one of the routines during Pitti week.

The visit and collection for upcoming spring and summer did not disappoint, once again Mismo came up with an inspiring range featuring their popular basic pieces together with some seasonal and new innovations.

Full post and more pictures now @tyylit.fi

imageFor the next season there were basically two new colors featured on the canvas bags - very strong & bright blue and the “rustic brown” pictured here. Especially the latter is a well-working choice.

imageOne of the new models were the “suit carrier” that came both in canvas and distressed leather. This is something Mismo has been lacking. In addition to suits and shirts the side pocket gives room for a laptop or a pair of shoes for example.

Bastong that I in the first place got familar at Pitti Uomo in January is a South Korean company, dedicated to making classic but casual daily outerwear with a philosophy that “Regardless of genre, ‘anything that’s well made does work”. 

The selection of the brand is small including basically 5 different jackets and in addition they make 1-2 new models differing from one season to another. The design of Bastong focuses on creating a clean look combined with high quality materials and construction. As they say by themselves - a good product with good care will last forever.

Collection for spring and summer ´15 is named and inspired by “Sahara desert”, including two different color schemes - a sand picturing the sand dunes and dark blue to portray the clear nights of the desert. For the season, in addition to the “original collection” there are couple of really nice additions, such as the classic rain mac. Trying to create personal interpretations of army inspired garments is not easy, but Bastong is one of the uncommon brands that succeeds in that task.

As with many Asian brands and products the availability in Europe (or in America) is not that good but check out their own web store in case you are interested. UK-based John Simons should also have Bastong jackets in their selection later in the fall.
