Tombolini S/S ´14

Feeling and dressing up in a light way are the key concepts of Tombolini - expression of the present days mixed with tradition that the idea of contemporary way of living without any excess. The suits and jackets of the brand are the emblem of the concrete quality and the cut shows and proves the ability of doing things well and durable at the same time.  Simple colors, soft shapes and clean lines together with the “lightness” and refined style are the key elements that guarantee Tombolini’s success season after season. The S/S ´14 lookbook that was shot at the beautiful landscape of La Riviera del Conero makes one to long for summer that still seems to be far away at...

Lubiam S/S ´14 @ Pitti Uomo 84

For some reason I’ve left Lubiam to be one the last brands to show, maybe because I think the photos I took don’t make justice to the collection which I actually liked maybe even more than the two previous ones I’ve seen from them. Unlike most of the exhibitors Lubiam had for this season changed the layout of the stand a bit (and maybe this made it too difficult for me to shoot) which also gave a nice refreshment. Also this time they had present a lot of pieces from maybe their most unknown label “Brando”, in the same space with the other collections.  The collection for next spring and summer overall comes with lots and lots of bold patterns...

Tombolini S/S ´14 @ Pitti Uomo 84

Being my personal favorite for the last two Pitti Uomo fairs, I was definitely looking forward to see Tombolini and their collection this time as well.  In general it should be said that for every season (this one not being an exception) Tombolini comes up with one of the most comprehensive collections covering not only business, formal, casual or some “trendy” parts of their line-up at the booth but the whole selection in a very compatible way. Even though it means that the overall look stays pretty much the same from one season to another there’s also some new bites keeping the presentation fresh and crispy every single time. Business & Zero Gravity One of the key pieces in the collection and worth to...

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...

Eidos Napoli @ Pitti Uomo 84

Eidos Napoli was one of the brands I was most looking forward to see during this summer’s Pitti Uomo.  Eidos - that in some instances has been described as a younger brother of Isaia - was firstly introduced in the spring as they presented their collection for fall ´13 and now made its first appearance at Pitti Uomo, Florence. Even though Eidos is in fact own by Isaia these brands should be considered totally separated as they have quite distinct perspective on how to wear tailored clothing, distinct target groups as well as distinct price point. The collection is designed by Antonio K. Ciongoli, who earlier worked as a deputy creative director for Michael Bastian's designer collection as well as the Gant by Michael...
