Eleventy SS14 Pitti Preview
After following Mr. Baldassari’s label for quite some time, I must say expectations were high for Eleventy’s upcoming collection: thankfully, they were not only met, but actually surpassed. Presenting a well balanced collection, Eleventy once again managed to deliver all-round pieces, perfect for polished everyday attires, with a unique panache. I guess the most appealing element for me is its core “casual meets sophisticated” essence, a trademark element that makes it easy for you to resonate with particular pieces, no matter which style you favor the most.
This time around, everything revolved around lightweight, comfortable fabrics, able to adjust to different body shapes. Tailored sports coats, hoodies and gilets mixed with washed jeans and chinos, exuded a contemporary urban feel achieved through unique layering; supple perforated suede bomber jackets made for perfect outerwear alternatives, while a wide range of accessories and shoes complemented the whole offering.

Even if you’re broke, being able to take a walk down the seaside during a beautiful sunny day right before Christmas, is something that gets your spirits up. It definitely felt nice to strip a few layers down and roll the sleeves up while making use of seasonal fabrics. This vintage flannel button down was an instant grab due to the soft touch and bright color, a perfect winter alternative that can be worn by itself or as an overshirt. I have a thing for mixing garments with different levels of formality, taking them out of context either by breaking them down or dressing them up. The casual flannel shirt was a blank canvas for a put together look featuring a fitted denim gilet, cashmere tie, classic pocket square and dub monks…
