Brioni AW13 Lookbook #1
No need for words…
L.B.M. 1911 AW13 Lookbook
Prada teams up with Wes Anderson and Jason Schwartzman for this remarkable short film “Castello Cavalcanti”. Evoking several references from Federico Fellini and the history of Italian cinema, the director is able to once again create unique characters with a refined humorous twist.
Boglioli SS14 “Understated Romance” Lookbook
A quick break from this lousy weather to take a glimpse into the upcoming season’s sunnier days, through the hands of Italian menswear experts Boglioli. Embodying the ethereal theme of romance associated with the season, the lookbook exudes the brand’s trademark refined nonchalance: superb unstructured jackets and suits are beautifully layered with lightweight cardigans, turtlenecks and scarves, all in a muted color palette picking up on natural shades.

Brunello Cucinelli AW13 Lookbook
Superb texture and layering combinations in a seasonal understated color palette…
Pal Zileri AW13 Lookbook
Although summer just hit its peak here in Portugal, fashion’s cyclical nature waits for no one. With Autumn/Winter collections well advanced in most fashion retailers, time has come to start thinking about your selection for the “upcoming” season. Covering everything from formal, to sartorial everyday attires and even snow wear, Pal Zileri is definitely worth considering. Coincidentally, besides the outstanding garments, I couldn’t help to notice that the featured model is portuguese Ricardo Guedes.
Royal Hem AW13 Lookbook
Another outstanding collection from Royal Hem, this time paying tribute to London’s Tweed Run. British elegance is combined with Italian tailoring and craftsmanship, to deliver a perfect blend of styles that carry on the label’s unique aesthetic of informal luxury.
Next on my list of brands for Pitti Uomo is Eleventy. With Mr. Marco Baldassari at its helm, the brand embodies his own vision of style, portraying a blend of polished and casual garments in the most perfect balance. For me, Eleventy is all about looking good while keeping things simple, with a unique Italian panache, of course. This trademark aesthetic is one that values quality, originality and love for the beauty of simplicity, leaving out everything that might compromise it through exaggeration.
