The Italian designer based in London Matteo Molinari, is not a designer to use. His background has nothing to do with the world of textile manufacturing - was formed in communication and he also studied philosophy - but after try their luck in the design of handbags, he decided to move to the United Kingdom and focus on the male clothing.
For now, it seems that things are going pretty well, and that it is his second collection with proposals for spring-summer 2013, it seems, has gotten into the pockets of many bigwigs press. Let their collections have fallen in grace, and that is, the view is, the Italian has, apart from good taste, a sense of aesthetics and particularly male with a great personality . His fashion is not for everyone, it is also clear.
Clean essence silhouettes minimal
Sets very refined, clean and in principle quite sober. This is the general tone of a collection that is mostly like the sartorial clothing. Suits fitted silhouette with embossed details on the lapels of the U.S., combined with plain shirts, in outfits more discreet...
Interspersed with ... looks much trend that combine high-waisted pants with cuffs generous cut (greatly exaggerated) in conjunction with tops cotton knit, thick pieces but also lightweight woven through the fabric of the thereof.
And that is precisely the point, is another key element of the proposal. Bulky sweaters boat neck , three-quarter sleeves sweaters, a colorful cardigan set with matching tie (which could well be the new twin-set), Or a sweater oversize with a funnel neck , to name some of these garments to the point.
The most boho-chic is composed of an air oriental outfits , in which long camisoles mandarin collar - made into a fabric blend of cotton and linen - are combined with ultra wide leg pants to play in the same material.
Flat colors in shades of reddish accents
As for the color palette, the designer opted for neutral tones and very flat. The binomial black & white, crude oil and toasting beige. To which are added the strong accents in colors like burgundy, aubergine or red raspberry.
The icing; few add but well-chosen
The final touch of style they put the few accessories you use, yes, very well chosen. Thus, for example, highlights the felt hats with a wide brim that emphasize bohemian. The sunglasses with braided chains, or velvet bow ties night looks with the dinner jacket as key garment.
In short, a conceptual collection not impossible, with some total looks very wearable and inspiring (the suit), and other more complicated (the eastern air) that although it could be adapted to carry on the street. Of course, to be the second full collection Matteo Molinari is not bad. We will continue to track this designer promising young men who, of course, and suggests ways and very good.
