CANALI A/W '17
In the long history of superb Italian fashion brands, Canali holds a special place as a label that embodies luxury, fine tailoring and a modern rakish energy. For autumn 2017, Canali explore a journey towards the origins of elegance with everything made in Italy, exquisite construction, unparalleled quality and unique design details.
Sophistication is the one word that best sums up the collection. Silhouettes were tailored to follow the natural contours of the body, free of excess and pared down whilst outerwear featured a subtle throwback to the Sixties with a slight exaggeration in proportions.
Fall fabrics include cashmere, wool, silk and chinchilla, with many pieces featuring distinctive textures like micro bouclé and ultra-soft baby alpaca. These fabrics featured across traditional menswear motifs such as the Prince of Wales check, madras, herringbone and birds eye which were cleverly overlapped or rotated for a modern and contemporary twist. Jacquards and other indicate weaves create optical patterns on dynamic, saturated colours of navy, purple and brown and a grayscale that goes from black to white.
A label that specialises in formal attire, the Canali formal suits feature refined lines, luxurious materials and great shades, so you could do worse than live the most important day of your life in elegance in style.
