2013 LaFerrari Unveiled

2013 LaFerrari Unveiled

Eleven years after the Ferrari Enzo, the Maranello-based automaker has officially unveiled their next supercar — the 2013 LaFerrari. Powered by the HY-KERS system that was developed alongside Ferrari’s Formula 1 racing efforts, LaFerrari features a 789-hp, 6.3-liter V-12 internal combustion engine that’s matched with a 120kW (161 hp) electric motor. All this is mated with Ferrari’s F1 dual-clutch gearbox, with claims of a 0-62 mph time under three seconds and a sub 7-second 0-124 mph time. Some of Ferrari’s top race drivers gave their insights into how the interior should be designed, in an effort to bring as much single-seater driving position to LaFerrari as possible. As a result, the driver’s seat itself is fixed and built to driver specification, while the steering wheel and pedals are adjustable to achieve proper reach.

We’re still waiting on some finer detailers like cost and weight but check out the launch video of the 2013 LaFerrari below to get your mouth watering.

MFW | Ermenegildo Zegna Fall/Winter 2013

MFW | Ermenegildo Zegna Fall/Winter 2013

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

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.

MFW | Moncler Gamme Bleu Men's Spring/Summer 2013

With Milan Fashion Week underway, we’ve got our first runway preview in the form of Moncler Gamme Bleu and the label’s S/S 2013 collection. Thom Browne blends his hand-made tailoring sensibility with Moncler‘s expertise in active sportswear and outerwear, delivering another highly welcomed collection that’s sure to be a hit come next year. The concept this time around centers around the sport of sailing as the offerings feature sailing gear inspired jackets with sailor collars flaps and trousers that flare from the knee. Beyond this, you can expect the usual classic menswear such as suits, sport coats, Chesterfield coat, trench, capes, cardigans, polos, trousers and shorts. The full collection is split into three inspiration groups — all white group; red, whitea and blue group as well as a black tie, formal group with a bit of “rain slicker” yellow.

More looks from the presentation can be found below.

Pitti Uomo is underway and one of the best S/S 2013 previews to hit the webs is that of Napoli designer Salvatore Piccolo. For next spring, the designer looks to blend Japanese fabrics with Italian styling and construction. Look for Japanese denim selvedged shirts as well as those of the cotton and canvas variety. There are also a handful of Piccolo-exclusive fabrics that can be seen on some of the linen suiting. All-in-all, there’s much to appreciate in Salvatore Piccolo’s Spring 2013 offerings, most of which can be seen below. (via Men’s Reverie)

BMW Zagato Coupe

BMW Zagato Coupe at Concorso D'Eleganza

BMW and Milan-based Zagato have teamed for this one-off beauty which is set to presented at this year’s Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este. Under the hood, you’ll find a 3.0-liter twin-turbo V6 that dishes out an impressive 400 ponies. It’s based on the current Z4 but features a more aggressive appeal and Zagato’s signature trademark double-bubble roof as well as a sliced-off rear. Other fine details include deep grooved side vents, the Z-filled grille, and an oversized Z found in silver below the side vents. There have been quiet rumblings of the possibility of the BMW Zagato Coupe being available in a limited run, but nothing’s been etched just yet.
