Silk is the main protagonist of Corneliani’s summer collection for 2019. The men’s wear brand established in 1930, has produced a collection that celebrates its savoir-faire through a wide and versatile offering; developed to meet the needs of contemporary men’s demanding lifestyle.
Silk is presented with a classic shiny effect, with mat finishing and with washed effects. It combines with superfine wool for suits with lightweight constructions and comfortable silhouettes. It combines with linen-wool blends to create intriguing textures in deconstructed blazers.
Featherweight garment-dyed jackets are embellished with precious colour effects, while the urban-chic bombers are crafted from washed silk. The prints, inspired by tie and tile motifs, bring a dramatic multicolour touch to silk shirts and practical blousons to create a summary, Mediterranean mood.
The leathers offered are light and versatile, spanning from sophisticated reversible napa-suede blazers to suede bombers treated with wax. The collection’s palette is inspired by natural elements and includes powdery tones of indigo, periwinkle blue, hydrangea, orchid and apricot, matched with neutral hues of grey, oil green and tobacco.
The collection also features three capsule collections, each distinguished by its own dedicated label, and each celebrates the brand’s heritage as a trench manufacturer.
“Beyond the Rain” is a capsule collection of four iconic raincoats, that stand out thanks to their unusual materials, their exclusive technical details, the intricate embroideries and the sophisticated applications. Each is defined by a distinctive silhouette ranging from the Fifties’ double-breasted style to a classic belted construction and an oversized and cocooning shape.
“Style & Freedom” is a capsule collection of sweatshirts, joggers and knitted sweaters that are crafted from upscale materials and reflect Corneliani’s more sporty side.
“Connected Style” capsule consists of a zippered jacket, a field-style backpack, a small travel bag and a computer case. Each item includes a customised power bank that enables the recharging of mobile phones placed in the pocket of a jacket or a bag. The recharging is done through electromagnetic induction. To protect the wearer from any radiation, all pieces in the collection are lined with a silver film.
