“I wanted to highlight the sensual side of traditional Italian tailoring”, said Chiapponi.
Chiapponi’s reductionist approach was echoed in the disciplined ’90s silhouette he referenced. The first look, on Gigi Hadid – an all-black pantsuit and coat – set the tone for a series of masculine suits worn with matching light coats, cut with Neapolitan sartorial precision to give soft-structured ease to their fit.
Existentialism, he said, was a more “comforting and honest” way to present his views, “negating frivolity”, impacted by the news of war in Ukraine, and still coping with the consequences of the pandemic.
