Wooster + Lardini Collection
One of the most hyped events taking place during the latest edition of Pitti Uomo, was undoubtedly the debut of the Wooster + Lardini collaboration. Held on the amazing terrace of the Pitti Immagine Foundation, the presentation gathered some of the most renowned bloggers, magazines and fashion personalities, all thriving with anticipation to witness first hand what Wooster had in store for them.
After a brief presentation from the Lardini family, expressing their desire to deliver an updated, innovative take on the sartorial universe they are renowned for, Wooster quickly broke the ice with his trademark sense of humor. Blending his creative vision with the quality craftsmanship of the Italian brand, the collection was brought to life in a matter of weeks through a fluid brainstorm of concepts that were brilliantly executed.
Making the most of Lardini’s exceptional tailoring skills and research in manufacturing processes and garment treatments, the collaboration is exactly what one would expect from Wooster’s influence - a rugged, irreverent take on the sartorial universe, slightly hinting at imperfection. From color block and prints, up to tailored shorts and crinkled effects achieved through “unfinished” garment dye techniques, this refreshing approach definitely sets a new standard for Lardini. The subdued color palette of navy, grey, army green and khaki, further reinforces the balance of the classic/modern dichotomy.
