Scandinavian simplicity combined with Italian craftsmanship and tradition

Boglioli S/S ´14 @ Pitti Uomo 84


Playfullness, masculinity and fabric experimentation

First of all I need to say that the photos do not do justice to the S/S ´14 collection by Boglioli that was built and presented in the middle of daisies, gardenias and peach blossoms in their very own house during the fair. The craftsmanship and experimentation especially with the different kinds of fabric treatments Boglioli is known for is something you should see and feel by yourself.

Soft fabrics and peculiar shapes

For the up coming spring and summer there are once again a bunch of new experiments all in terms of fabric treatments, colors and cut. One of them is the new cut and peculiar shape for the suit where the front part of the jacket is asymmetric and slightly shorter in the back, cut in a way that will give the jacket effortless and more elegant but a modern look with the widened revers and emptied shoulders. The trousers of the suit as a counterpart rediscover pinches to balance the precision of the jacket. The Eton suit also features new buttons made of milk protein - exclusively for Boglioli.

Another piece that sums up the main idea - “studied carelessness and fault in the perfection of the look” - behind the collection, is the broken suit, a mismatched ensemble composed of a jacket and trousers dyed with a same color but made of different fabrics; as wool and silk or mohair and cotton. Not suitable for everyone and probably not easy to pull off either but will definitely give you a unique look.

Third piece worth mentioning is the new pashmina jacket made 70% of cashmere, giving you a weightless and chic feel, being casual and classy at the same time.

In terms of color there collection draws inspiration from the heritage and fabrics, making the best effort to emulate their textures. Many pieces are over dyed featuring hints of denim and opaque shades of khaki that enlightens the jackets and trousers with a daily allure.

Garment dyed silk seersucker was also one of the newly developed experiments and fabric treatments. The orange sport coat was one of my personal favorites in the collection.
