Balancing between dressed-up and casual - that has been the main theme for Italian Eleventy for years. Collections have mainly concentrated on combining casual elegance & comfort with classic taste and modern interpretation - featuring soft and light weight garments with restrained and earthy color scheme, i.e a lot of blue, grey and brown. Today taking a look of their look book for this spring and summer.
Eleventy S/S 2015
When I saw the collection for the upcoming spring and summer last June at Pitti it seemed that Eleventy was trying - if not totally change the approach at least bring some more trendy, fashion-forward and kind of rock'n roll vibes into their selection. And that vibe can now be seen in the look book as well. Leather jackets, denim vests, necklaces, printed t-shirts worn with unbuttoned shirts - all these also combined with more classic style oriented pieces. For anyone fond of Italian way of dressing and that “casual chic & elegant” vibe Eleventy has been known for this might come as a little surprise. I’m personally really not that thrilled by these looks so I’ve picked out some of my personal favorites that actually represents the core of Eleventy - deliberated yet sober looks that do not feature visible logos, but that can still be identified with the “house style” of the brand.

First of all something for those casual Fridays. Denim and cotton knitwear combined with a knitted tie and quilted vest.
Brown x Blue. A classic combination one can not go wrong with.
Soft and slim. A very modern interpretation of a pinstripe three-piece-suit, combined with robust derby-shoes. In case you are heading to work - you might want to add some socks.
Heading first to to the gym - and shopping after that? Sport and casual clothing has become more and more appropriate to wear even in the city and Eleventy offers a good option in case looking something for that kind of purpose.
Eleventy Donna Spring and summer 2015
As Eleventy is one of those #menswear brands that produces garments not just for guys but for women as well, a quick look at the selection for ladies. The colors scheme is pretty much the same, pieces range on the line between smart and casual chic, being suitable from office all the way till cosy evenings at home or nights out in the city. In general it can be said that the Donna line is very comprehensive and coherent - showcasing clearly the identity and simplicity that is used to be seen as the trademark of Eleventy.
