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 | Burberry Prorsum Fall/Winter 2013 Collection

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.

From Milan comes looks at Ermenegildo Zegna’s Fall/Winter 2013 collection. The label is known for well-crafted suits and that’s definitely the case here. Expect impeccable pinstripes and “sportified” accents infused into the more formal garments. The palette’s filled with shades of grey reminiscent of asphalt, steel, cement and granite. The tones are brightened with flashes of white and deep green. Classically cut coats, made from feather-light spazzolino, the prized alpaca fabric launched by Agnona in the Seventies, were showcased alongside double-breasted and elongated suits, immaculate shirts with refined collars and matching cummerbunds that raise the waistline.

Zegna‘s latest lineup of accessories are ideal for brief trips and feature a bold character thanks to compact shapes and usage of a bicolor metal. The footwear’s made with hand polished calfskin just like the bags and come in a range of styles including travel bags, hold-alls and computer bags reinforced by handmade piping and fitted with handles and interior compartments.

Pitti | Woolrich John Rich & Bros. Fall/Winter 2013 Collection

Today marks the start of Pitti Uomo in Florence and we’ve already gotten a few brands in highlight. First up is Woolrich John Rich & Bros. and their Fall 2013 collection which is broken out into two macro themes for the season: the TOWN CONCEPT and MOUNTAIN CONCEPT. From the tailoring interpretation of the original Americana to the technical performances of the new Outdoor Teton Group, the collection presents a wider range of new outerwear and sportswear that go from the outdoor style to the more sophisticated urban and tailored look.

The TOWN CONCEPT focuses primarily on city life by delivering an understated tone via British-influenced blazers, herringbone patterns and tailored cuts. For layering, lightweight 100g pieces in down can be placed under blazers and lightweight outerwear such as the Sundance Jacket with hidden pockets and the hooded Powderhorn Parka.

The MOUNTAIN CONCEPT looks to interpret a lifestyle for a weekend out of the city and free time in the mountains, a continuative theme that goes back to the origins of the Woolrich brand. The pieces are made from technical water-resistant fabrics for cold outdoor temperatures and have an elegance that distinguishes them from purely outdoor outerwear.
