A cashmere trench coat tied at the waist over an extremely elegant strictly white double-breasted suit. In anticipation of the remake of The Great Gatsby, Corneliani re-interprets the elegance of the great Don Juan with the power of a contemporary sartorial style and meticulous attention to details, starting with the bag and shoes to match in tweed, Prince of Wales and cashmere.
A touch of high style that reinforces the collection’s philosophy: a contemporary “custom-made” tailoring to focus upon that will win the hearts of consumers and emphasize the brand’s point of origin.
For the Fall-Winter 2012 collection, the must have is the cashmere knitted suit that highlights a style which is increasingly relaxed, confident and unstructured while still observing tradition. Double-breasted models are more slim-fitted and less formal; topcoats are long and fluid; the contours of suits are unquestionably subtler.
Optical and the “new” black with a glossy woollen tone that create a luminous chromatic effect.
For those special touches of eccentricity: a sheared mink jacket – as soft and light as velvet - for a very special evening, a knit and fur poncho or a sport-chic heavy jacket.
For freezing temperatures, patchwork sheepskin with fabric details: easy wear that is bold, informal and sophisticated. The brand’s creative director Sergio Corneliani explains: “I got my inspiration from the fascinating and wild nature of faraway lands – elephants, tigers and lions printed on leather jackets, the linings of outerwear and embroidered upon hand knitted garments.
I believe that today’s new elegance arises from respecting one’s own personality. Our task is to simply suggest stylish details that help everyone renew their wardrobes with a touch of imaginativeness. In these trying economic times, we believe in the quality of Made in Italy products - now more than ever - to take on the challenges of the market with a style that lasts through time and transcends temporary fashions.”
