Milan Men's Fashion Week: Canali
Jan 20, 2015
The latest menswear collection from Canali was inspired by the post-war optimism and dynamic nature of the city of Milan in the 1950s.
"Milan in those years was something unique," explained Andrea Pompilio, now full-time creative consultant at the brand. "A perfect mix of the precision of the past and an explosive sense of creativity, a mixture of practicality and imagination tempered by a typically Italian sense of elegance."
This clash of old and new saw a rubber galoshes effect on suede and leather lace-up brogues or velcro closure shoes, and hiking boots with a sneaker sole.
The sharp, tight-fitting tailoring came with horizontal stripes or a windowpane check, along with double-breasted blazers and overcoats in cashmere. Meanwhile the more casual looks included oversized knit sweaters, boiled wool and shearling duffle coats, an on-trend bonded suede coat and denim jeans with retro cuffed turn-ups.
The collection stuck to a neutral palette of monochromes and creams with a touch of mustard yellow, petrol blue and deep marsala, which were used as accent colors and on accessories like the buttery leather backpacks and document holders.
Pompilio then ended proceedings with a series of highly desirable colored tuxedos (both single and double-breasted) worn with matching minimalist velvet slippers.
