A few quick shots from this morning - taken at our hotel before heading to the airport and back to Helsinki. 

Been busy as trying to unpack and pack the bags again for tomorrow as we continue to Stockholm to see the Fashion week and especially the launch of Eidos Napoli x Eton of Sweden new collaboration. More about that in the end of the week.

Recent acquisitions part II - Lardini double-breasted blazer
I’ve personally always been fond of double-breasted jackets and as they’ve recently come more and more popular (again) it has luckily brought many new and nice options available. 
The jacket pictured is another db-blazer I just recently decided to go for in addition to the G.Abo Napoli one posted couple of days ago. Had been keeping an eye for this since the guys at Sauma showed it to me for the first time couple of months ago.
The jacket (by Lardini) is made of nice cotton x linen mixture, unlined and features a bit bolder pattern that might even be a deal-breaker for some people. One thing that is worth paying attention is the pattern matching which is done with utmost care and finished perfectly. Just look at the (patch) breast pocket for example.
Next week you will probably see some fit pics of this one as well, paired with some suede loafers and white cotton slacks. Recent acquisitions part II - Lardini double-breasted blazer

26/05/2014 - green, pink & denim details
Yesterday was quite a casual (and warm day so decided to go with my green cotton/silk-suit by Lardini, featuring lightweight construction and patch pockets to make it even more “unofficial”. And well, green is the new black this summer.
Recently also got couple of new additions to my shirt rotation from Eton and the pictured denim shirt with a bit more unusual tab-collar (i.e the collar  has two small tabs in the middle of the collar points. These connect beneath the tie, pushing the knot up and out) is one of them.
Finally picked out a tie I found from Rose&Born last year but which I haven’t use for quite a while as such bright pink color is something that can every now and then be a bit hard to combine. Here however it goes nicely as it’s balanced by the olive green color of the suit and indigo denim of the shirt.

Lardini recently opened their renewed website and as a part of that they launched their new journal. At the Journal they have started a series called “Lardini Talks” featuring interviews of some of the personalities linked to the “Lardini world”.

Few weeks ago I was asked if I wanted to answer few questions and be featured at the series. Of course my answer was yes. Really honored and happy to be a part and in case you’re interested, you’ll find my answers from here.

And here’s one of my favorite outfits from the archives, featuring a Lardini silk-linen jacket, Schoffa mtm denim shirt and grenadine tie, Berwich trousers and Crockett&Jones suede loafers.

Time for next in line in terms of reviews from Pitti Uomo 85. For the second time in a row,  Lardini was the brand that came up with the most inspiring collection in my book.

Lardini, created and still run by the siblings Andrea, Luigi and Lorena Lardini is known for the development, innovation and experimentation it invests in to create products - with versatility of different fabrics, patterns and special treatments - that combine the art of hand tailoring and cutting-edge machinery. All of the products are manufactured entirely in Filottrano, Italy 

Restyling the suit - make it reversible

One of the most coolest and inspiring things seen at the fair for me this time was definitely the business-line by Lardini, where the company has as they say it “restyled the suit” by making the suit jackets reversible, in other words bringing to two suits in one piece. To make it even more “modern twisted”, the classical-cut waistcoat in quilted nylon has brought up as a garment to be worn under the suit or with separates if so decided. Restrained colors and patterns are perfectly suitable for business and at least I consider this to be an innovative solution for the question what to wear on a two-day-business-trip.

Finally, after two weeks traveling around after Pitti I can get started with some short reviews of what was seen during the fair and what will be seen next spring. I’ll start the series with Lardini that I was fascinated by in January and that this time came up with maybe the most inspiring collection in my book.

Chic and comfortable

Chic and comfortable is probably the best definition to describe the S/S ´14 collection by Lardini. As earlier, there’s a huge amount of experimentation and versatility with different fabrics, patterns and special treatments featuring for example some garment-dyed and two-tone jackets, soft shapes and silhouettes, simple earthy colors, attention to details and innovative implementations of classic garments.

Lardini definitely came up with one of the most interesting and inspiring mixture of patterns and textures presented at Pitti. The collection combines British classic style with Italian lightness, soft shapes and exclusive fabrics inspired by the old archives and a result of a long and multi-stage treatment processes.

Nicely use of muted colors mixed with a bit more bold accents such as yellow ocher and red brick. A lot of layering (I personally like a lot the way Laridini presents its collection) and versatile mix of outerwear, suits and especially jackets that are suitable and editable for various occasions, both formal and casual.
