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.
Ph: Beyond Fabric
Next on my list of brands for Pitti Uomo is Eleventy. With Mr. Marco Baldassari at its helm, the brand embodies his own vision of style, portraying a blend of polished and casual garments in the most perfect balance. For me, Eleventy is all about looking good while keeping things simple, with a unique Italian panache, of course. This trademark aesthetic is one that values quality, originality and love for the beauty of simplicity, leaving out everything that might compromise it through exaggeration.
