CAMO AW14 Pitti Preview
Inspired by the city lights, Stefano Ughetti managed to deliver yet another impressive collection, marked by the influence of urban colors on both new and trademark models. A strong emphasis was given to knitwear, presented in a variety of patterns, textures and shades, while making the best of luxurious fabrics and construction. A shout out to the beautiful speckled effects which embody the sight of an urban environment by night.
Suiting is always one of the most appealing offerings from the Italian label, which manages to deliver a tailored take on casual models through its fitted blazers and low crotch trousers: this time around, beautiful tweed and heavy wool was used to portray a unique wintery feel.
Ph: Beyond Fabric
Although rain is a pain, I’ve got to say I was eagerly awaiting for Fall to arrive in all its cold splendor. There’s something overly appealing about mixing garments with distinct textures and warm, earthy tones, not to mention the range of available accessories. For me, few other shades scream cold weather as well as burgundy and mustard; while the first has established its place as a classic, the latter is currently experiencing a much deserved hype moment. Not as sophisticated or regal as camel, mustard is an outstanding alternative that embodies the season’s spirit and allows for superb color schemes. Cold weather calls for cords, and this slim fitting model has been on heavy rotation lately, providing the perfect chance to sport two of my latest purchases, both in burgundy: the Buttero boots and Soeur Fedora.
Details: raw hem wool blazer by Rice, washed denim shirt by Hentsch Man, mustard cords by H&M, round toe leather boots by Buttero, wool fedora by Soeur, tortoise shades by Linda Farrow Luxe, wool/silk patterned scarf by Épice, vintage braided leather belt.
Model and Styling: Miguel Amaral Vieira
Autumn shades - Hunter green + Mustard. The rich, darker shades of green and chocolate suede perfectly balance the bold nature of the jeans.
Green oxford button down by Ralph Lauren, mustard slim fit jeans by Zara (tailored), “vintage” suede boat shoes by Buttero, belt by A.P.C., watch by Rolex (GMT Master II), bracelet by street vendor and canvas/leather messenger by Zara.
