Beyond Fabric x Simone Righi by Guaizine #1
My last trip to Florence was one of the most exciting and prolific so far. Besides Pitti itself, the myriad of surrounding events and presentations I had the chance to attend, made my stay all the more special. Undoubtedly, the highlight of week was the opportunity to talk and experience Mr. Simone Righi at work, while he styled and fitted me a couple of outfits from his store Frasi. A big shout out to my friend Martin, talented photographer, Master of Arts and founder of the blog Guaizine, for arranging and documenting the rendezvous.
Witnessing Simone’s natural gift in person is nothing short of outstanding: from the passion and know-how with which he addresses garments, fabrics, cut and fit, to the nonchalant styling of accessories such as scarfs or pocket squares, everything fluidly unveils as an artwork. The first look was comprised by a superb single breasted, 3 button, cotton/linen suit by Kiton, featuring a perfectly balanced fit with a tailored jacket and slightly wider pants for extra comfort and breathability. The final touch was given by the beautiful Japanese print scarf, adding an extra visual element and play on length.
