Orley SS14 Lookbook
I first met the trio behind Orley during Pitti Uomo 83 and couldn’t help to be amazed by their outstanding knitwear offerings (they were showing AW13 at the time). The american based, italian made label is an expert when it comes to knitwear, incorporating highly advanced techniques into sweaters, cardigans and jackets. For SS14, the brand presents yet another refreshing and irreverent approach, expanding the collection to incorporate tailored trousers and relaxed pleated shorts.
Summer essentials: faded in the sun
With the streak of highly praised fashion events happening this month (Pitti, Milan and Paris), one may easily delve into all the media reports and find himself stranded in the universe of next year’s SS12 creations. Although I’m always eager to catch a glimpse of future collections from my favourite designers and spot upcoming trends, I like to stay focused on the current moment and not obsess about what’s yet to come.
Making use of the virtually non-existent hype low between Pitti and Milan, I decided to show my love for one of the season’s staple pieces: the sun faded polo shirt. Remember that special polo you’ve been wearing for the last few years? How it gained a certain patina, a washed out salt kissed color? Now, thanks to a special treatment which softens and draws just the right amount of color from the fabric, you’re able to get that same “sitting in the sun for years” look, right off the rack. Well, the look might be the same but it will always lack that unique personality of a piece that sticked with you throughout the years.
Nonetheless, this is the next best thing and with the current amount of solid offerings, there’s no reason not to invest in a couple of washed red and indigo ones. Personally, I prefer the models with a chest pocket as it gives them a more retro feel…pair them with shorts or rolled up jeans or chinos and you’re ready to go!
