Lardini Fall and Winter 2014

All of the products are manufactured entirely in Filottrano, Italy. The collection for this particular season - featuring reversible overcoat and suits, a load of garment dyed garments and innovative play with patterns and textures - was on the top of my list as I saw it at Pitti Uomo last January. To read more my thoughts after seeing it...
