“The Rebel” di Beatrice Brandini

Continues the masculine journey through the wonderful creations inside the Pitti Uomo salon.

That Italy, with its numerous textile workers, ranging from raw materials (fabrics, yarns, accessories), to the tailoring skills and craft, was able to create the beautiful dress, we had no doubt, but from few seasons we understand that also the leisure o sport dress must be worthy of this record, which has become more elegant and refined. So many, in fact, the classic fabrics provided to the leisure smeared version, technical, gummed. Many proposals of precious sneakers, totes and backpacks that for creativity and workmanship, could be in the boutiques shop windows. So much wool, much importance to detail and to the inside of the clothes. No one really “need” of something, buying today is the result of an emotional reaction.

MOVE Officine del Cappello. They are the most beautiful hats in circulation, in truth for over thirty years at the hands of his mentor, creative and founder, Massimiliano Amicucci All handmade, with “obsolete” production techniques because are too expensive and “tiring.” To wear something valuable that does not follow fashions and chimeras, but that, through the years, you can put on and discover every time and feel special. They are hats stars (literally, as Massimiliano also introduces them to the greatest directors / films and actors in the world (among others, those in Sherlock Holmes, 007 Spectre, Hugo Cabret, I Medici, Les Misérables …)

Franklin & Marshall, when I worked in Puma often wore at the Puma headquarters in Germany, Franklin & Marshall garments samples because I thought they were a perfect mix of sport – lifestyle, very easy, in the sense of portable, but also fresh and fun. I still think the same way.

Pierre Louis Mascia, beautiful scarves, accessories, but also sweaters and outerwear, result of an incredible and imaginative mix of patchwork, colors, prints, fabrics, everything, although incredibly rich, can maintain an elegant allure. Pierre Louis, creative mind, it might be a painter or illustrator and would be equally good. Behind there is Achille Pinto S.p.A., famous, historical printing from Como.

Demo Division, already mentioned in the last edition this London brand that mixes lifestyle-inspired “work wear” with interesting touches of English eccentricity. This collection mixes Jamaican culture, militaristic echoes and a touch of kitsch (funny!) in the prints. Behind also an ethical and pacifist intention inspired by the student movement SDS (Students for a Democratic Society).

Replay, happy to have (re) discovered this brand that I have always loved and that is part of pleasant memories of my youth (the first jeans, the first bomber). Setting up relevant, a sign that they want to get serious, and the collection, most importantly, very attractive. The theme is “military”, but also college and the “bad guys” biker. Beautiful especially coats, parkas, bomber jackets and down jackets , and the timeless jeans they do really well.
