For many Luigi Bianchi Mantova of Lubiam is not as well known as LBM1911-brand but the line’s collections for sure has the required characteristics to satisfy the needs of even a more demanding customer looking for pieces to fill one’s business-wardrobe.
Inspiration for the upcoming fall collection arises from 1960's optical patterns featuring graphic macro checks, madras, micro designs, damier motifs and Prince of Wales-checks in different shades. The color scheme is kept restrained and earthy - making it easy to combine these pieces together. Double-breasted overcoats and suits featuring wool- and cashmere blends together with vests - offered both with matching suits or alone - top off the selection. One of the interesting choices in terms of materials is the intertwining of cotton and wool bouclÃ© yarns that is used to produce a kind of multicolor 3D effect on suits and blazers.
One detail worth of notice the lookbook nicely showcases is the “rule” that one should never combine more than three different patterns in one outfit. If you’re wearing a strongly patterned and a bold suit (or a jacket) it’s wise to balance the look with more restrained and plain shirt & tie choices.
