Boglioli: S/S 2011 Lookbook
When it comes to sports jackets and blazers, it doesn’t get much better than Boglioli. This Italian brand produces some of the world’s finest unstructured dyed jackets, with supreme materials and fit, setting the standard for luxury brands worldwide.
For their upcoming Spring/Summer collection, the merging of outstanding craftsmanship with lighter, more breathable fabrics, such as cotton and linen, comes to life in an array of lighter shades and patterns. Despite the exquisite suits displayed, I must say that the pieces that constantly win me over are the signature unstructured cotton blazers: although at first you might find them a bit relaxed and casual, it isn’t until you try them on that you truly appreciate the tailoring tradition and begin to see them as works of art. An interesting aspect is that despite the fact that Boglioli’s signature is the 3 button blazer, which to some might feel dated, the perfect construction allows for the rolling of the lapel, thus portraying a 2 button semblance.
A word of advice: once you’ve tried one of these on, chances are that you won’t be able to go back to the others hanging in your wardrobe. Try them at your own risk!
