Scandinavian simplicity combined with Italian craftsmanship and tradition

Boglioli fall and winter 2014


For this seasonal collection Italian Boglioli has studied and been inspired by the elegance of Milanese men of the 1960's - intellectuals and the entrepreneurs, who were valuable contributors of the Italian design and contemporary art. Milan has also served as a platform for shooting the look book. 

The collection as a whole continues to draw the “blurry line” between more traditional suiting - featuring Boglioli’s soft-shouldered, unstructured shaping - and casual elegance, which is spiced with a substantial effort to offer more “avant-garde fare”, so called “Milan Bohemia” - Formal evening wear made of cashmere is combined with casual sweaters, tailored jackets in rich teal and vivid plaids are accented with pleated denim, button-up shirts are worn without ties and layered with colorful and patterned cardigans.

Even though I’m not a fan of all choices and details, in general I like how the new designer Jay Vosoghi has kept his focus on the elements that are the core of known “Boglioli style”. Hope it will maintain the same in the future.

Monochrome blues - formal wear combined with casual knitwear. Personally really fond of this look.

Business-oriented chalk stripes-pattern in the suit is nicely balanced with patch pockets and the cardigan layered underneath.

Blue on blue seems almost like a trend at the moment.

Double-breasted blazer can be dressed down by wearing a roll neck sweater together with it. In case you want to take this fully to the casual side, replace the blazer with field jacket for example.

Not really a fan of this all buttons buttoned and worn without a tie-look but the patterned vest makes the look interesting.

A lot of earthy, monochromatic hues used in the look book. The shades and patterns of the suits together with the combinations clearly show the inspiration coming from the 1960s.

Thin and slim ties coming back?

Beautiful overcoat in brown featuring nice and striking turnback cuffs.

It seems that single monks are also rising up as a trend. Maybe they are the “new double monks”.

An example  how your suit should fit. I would drop the contrast stitching on the button holes though.

Plaids and colors here are maybe a bit too much. The jacket itself would be enough so I would keep the rest just simple and plain.
