All about materials

The thing that draws attention when going through the collection is definitely the innovative use of materials, fabrics and different treatments. There’s a lot of tweed (British and Irish), knickerbocker fabrics with tartan, prince of wales and check patterns, scribbled wool, over-dyed velvet and carded silk, printed corduroy, tweed cotton and of course cashmere.

ETON suit

Eton is the newest addition to collection of Boglioli suits, named after one the most famous and historic British colleges. Eton suit is made of carded flannel that during the making process undergoes exclusive “double washing” treatment that makes the flannel fabric resemble a sepia-colored pinstripe look. The washing also gives the suit a look as it just came out from an old 1950’s photograph, yet it maintains the distinctive and contemporary shape and look that will be suitable for any business meeting.

Use of color

The color palette, which as seen focuses on rustic brown, golden oak, military olive, ginger bread and legion blue finds it’s inspiration from and the work of avant-garde artist Bruno Contenotte.

Below you’ll find Conteonettes art that also was presented at the house of Boglioli in Florence. The lesson to be learned, as stated by the brand itself is how color occupies space, how it organises it and finally, how it also shapes it. Something you should also keep in mind when thinking of the color palette you use in your wardrobe.
