Pitti | Boglioli Fall/Winter 2013 Preview

Pitti | Boglioli Fall/Winter 2013 Preview

Here we have a look at Boglioli‘s setup at Pitti Uomo 83. The Italian label’s Fall/Winter 2013 collection, inspired in the work of avant-garde artist Bruno Contenotte, emphasises once again Boglioli’s passion for experimenting with unique materials and colours. Colour occupies space, organises it and shapes it. The artist’s lesson, logical and insane at the same time, sends Boglioli once again down unusual paths, to reach surprising effects. The colour palette focuses on golden oak, military olive, ginger bread, legion blue and rustic brown.

The overall vision of the latest lineup also pulls inspiration from Great Britain, with its history, traditions and culture. The concept of Heritage underpins the company’s journey through the sophisticated and elegant British world. Blend this with Boglioli’s contemporary outlook and constant search for new directions, innovative fabrics, treatments and cuts, we get a line that takes elegance and refinement to new heights.

MFW | Marni Fall/Winter 2013 Men’s Collection

MFW | Marni Fall/Winter 2013 Men's Collection

The Marni Men’s collection for F/W 2013-14 draws inspiration from the extremes of the 1970s, delivering a lineup that’s clean yet full of tension. Some of the standout items of the season include the duffel coat, parka, v-neck, oxford shirts, and a slim suit that’s buttoned high. Each item seems to have a quirk of sorts as weasel’s used on the back of the short mac, suit trousers are cuffed or have adjustable straps at the hem. Nylon inserts highlight pocket flaps on a jacket while contrast sleeves and cuffs create a sense of structure on knits. We’re seeing a ton of brands blend sport and formality and Marni’s doing this as well with a grey suit jacket that features an external duvet layer.

Expect plenty of prints as well including dogstooth, micro grids, bold stripes on neat shirts. This season the ubiquitous Marni floral print is overblown and becomes ambiguous almost like bleach splashed on trousers. Overall, the colour palette is deep and moody with tones of mustard, burgundy, raspberry, camel, petrol and midnight blue, and charcoal. The Fabrics are dry with a range including wool felt, twisted wool, technical polyester, and cotton gabardine. Expect some amazing accessories to be added into the mix as well with a range including double-strap boots, zippered portfolios with embossed dogstooth motifs, washed leather duffel bags.
