2014 - Weekend blues

Getting the week started with some shots from Saturday. Had a great day going through some second-hand shops in Helsinki and after that enjoying some burgers at the best burger joint in town at the Market Hall. As the day was luckily rainless, though a bit windy I ended up wearing my woolen overcoat in addition to sweater and a sport coat - all featuring different shades of blue. And so that it would not be too monochromatic a little splash of color in the form of scarf with restraint beige and bold orange in the gloves. Herringbone in the overcoat, checks on the sport coat. Some say you should never wear your overcoat unbuttoned. So I buttoned it. Some...

Featured @ Lardini Talks

Lardini recently opened their renewed website and as a part of that they launched their new journal.

Really honored and happy to be a part and in case you’re interested, you’ll find my answers from here. And here’s one of my favorite outfits from the archives, featuring a Lardini silk-linen jacket, Schoffa mtm denim shirt and grenadine tie, Berwich trousers and Crockett&Jones suede loafers.

Lardini F/W ´14 @ Pitti Uomo 85

Time for next in line in terms of reviews from Pitti Uomo 85. For the second time in a row,  Lardini was the brand that came up with the most inspiring collection in my book. Lardini, created and still run by the siblings Andrea, Luigi and Lorena Lardini is known for the development, innovation and experimentation it invests in to create products - with versatility of different fabrics, patterns and special treatments - that combine the art of hand tailoring and cutting-edge machinery. All of the products are manufactured entirely in Filottrano, Italy  Restyling the suit - make it reversible One of the most coolest and inspiring things seen at the fair for me this time was definitely the business-line by Lardini, where the...

Lardini S/S ´14 @ Pitti Uomo 84

Finally, after two weeks traveling around after Pitti I can get started with some short reviews of what was seen during the fair and what will be seen next spring. I’ll start the series with Lardini that I was fascinated by in January and that this time came up with maybe the most inspiring collection in my book. Chic and comfortable Chic and comfortable is probably the best definition to describe the S/S ´14 collection by Lardini. As earlier, there’s a huge amount of experimentation and versatility with different fabrics, patterns and special treatments featuring for example some garment-dyed and two-tone jackets, soft shapes and silhouettes, simple earthy colors, attention to details and innovative implementations of classic garments. One of the...
