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.

It was hard to choose from the variety of emblematic places Porto has to offer, but taking into account it was recently listed in an international ranking of “Streets to Visit”, I had to go with the charismatic Ribeira.
This eclectic area, bathed by the Douro River, is one of the most iconic places you can visit during your stay. Overlooking the (Porto) wine cellars on the other side, while portraying a unique view of two of the most renowned bridges that cross the city, it’s definitely a sight to behold. Its beauty is only surpassed by the overall atmosphere that permeates the space, with locals and tourists turning the street into an unmatched multicultural, bohemian rendezvous. From the scattered market stands, to the groups of people sitting by the riverside and the constant flow of sightseeing and traditional boats sailing the river, it’s hard not to be dazzled.
It’s nice to remember that although shorts play a crucial role during the season, Summery attires don’t necessarily need to be sloppy or overly relaxed. Simplicity can still look good in a pair of cuffed, tailored shorts, sitting perfectly above the knee, when matched with a classic white tee and double breasted knit blazer. It’s just right to exude a balanced and polished ensemble that will make you look good on (almost) any casual occasion.
