The idea of Roman nonchalance, that is integral to the ethos of the House, was heralded through pieces hand-stitched, unlined and ultra light blazers and bomber jackets – they were crafted from fine wool and wool combined with silk, linen, cashmere, and rare Escorial wool – rendered in checkered motifs. The classic tailored suit is given an urban overhaul with refreshed fabrics, including a lightweight 210s wool, soft cashmere, linen and silk, available in a contemporary seasonal colour palette from soft beiges, to subtle blues, greys, and greens.
The ultra-light fabrics, such as Leggera fabric and silk, were also applied to leisurewear which can be paired with daywear for a refined approach to relaxed dressing.
For the evening, the concept of a relaxed opulence brings the decadence of Rome to mind, with bold colour offering including luxurious silk shantung dinner jackets in genteel pink, orange and white.
