Pitti 87 Lardini
Day 3 at Pitti was basically all about meeting friends, both new and old, taking photos, networking and socializing. I also focused a little bit more on visiting brands and taking proper photos, not only with my phone.
In the following weeks I will show you brands I visited and those I like most. Today I start with Lardini.
Lardini presented a collection which involved many more different textures compared to last year. They also focused more on richer colours like shades of orange. Next season is also going to be all about turtle necks and heavy cardigans. We can even see both of them styled in the same look. Another trend which stood out at Pitti 87 was a denim/chambray shirt paired with chunky tie. Those heavy knitted ties were very popular, both in classic colours like navy but also in a variety of browns and beige. Of the most interesting pieces of Lardini collection was the tartan tuxedo. This is something that I believe was started by Eidos Napoli a season ago and really hit off this season. Tartan in general was a fabric which you could find in almost every brand’s collection, even the more rough version of it. All sorts of boiled wools and more casual silks or mohair were made into jackets or overcoats. Camel coat will definitely be still worn next season as well as bold checked blazers or sport coats.
Lardini also presented a winter collection prepared in the collaboration with Nick Wooster – its brand ambassador in USA. It consisted of many interesting outerwear garments like camel cashmere coats, pink Harris Tweed suits and jackets. Some inspiration came from Military garments too therefore the use of olive green and khaki. Item I like most is the fur collar overcoat.
