The luxury retail brand’s latest collection is inspired by the remnants of modern decadence, recalling parties thrown by the great Gatsby himself. Only the best materials are used: plush leathers, Italian wool fabrics, heavy silk twill and soft cottons. Bold and broad strokes of color dominate this season: merlot reds, mustard yellows complement parakeet green and deep Vatican blue with hints of nude and blush.
The women’s collection features leather as the central material, found in calfskin coats with extremely soft cashmere lining and pull-on knee-high boots in nabuk and ostrich. Featured as well are trousers in nappa leather and wool-silk blends and knits that complement leather pieces, such as cashmere sweater dresses and ponchos. Galvanized block heels are molded in three heights with metallic glazing finish. Merino shearling knee-high boots are dyed green and red and lined with soft calfskin.
Men’s wear takes on a utilitarian vibe: shirts in silk twill, wool, leather and shearling showcase hand-stitching finished by master tailors. Layering adds depth and fluidity to this collection. Cotton bonded raincoats are redone in a relaxed, streamlined silhouette lined with printed silk. A lengthened and oversized version of the English donkey jacket is designed in double wool-cashmere with leather shoulders.
These looks are completed by The Studio Bag, coming in crocodile, ostrich, shearling and soft calf.
