1ST PAT-RN SS15 Pitti Preview
Visiting Silvia, Alessio and Cris has become a regular entry on my agenda ever since I came across 1ST PAT-RN. As a fan and proud owner of 3 of their jackets, it’s always a pleasure to check in and discuss new developments and designs. The unique military inspired aesthetic along with an exclusive “cavalry di maglia” fabric, allows for a tailored yet comfortable look: fully unstructured with no lining, the knitted fabric adjusts to the body and regains its shape after each wash.
For SS15, the major change comes through the addition of bottom pieces such as the indigo selvedge denim and knitted shorts. Also, next season sees a new fabric development come to life: the “gabardina a maglia”, a sort of gabardine twill that provides the first woven approach to 1ST PAT-RN models. Besides the essential single and double breasted jackets, new worker jackets made the cut in beautiful camel and indigo shades.

Suitsupply showcases a small glimpse of its moodboard inspiration for SS15.
Working with Biella based weavers E. Thomas, Ferla and Vitale Barberis Canonico, we can expect a variety of reinterpreted fabrics dating back to the 19th century, carefully stored within these weaver’s archives: linen, cotton, summer cashmere, kid mohair and seersucker are but a part of this selection. The spice trail also bears a presence in the collection, namely in what regards warmer, dynamic shades that complement the traditional navy and royal blue.
