Italian luxury brand Corneliani presents a new chapter with its spring/summer 2019 collection celebrating the label’s savoir-faire through a wide and versatile offering developed to meet the needs of contemporary men’s dynamic lifestyle.
Silk is the protagonist for this collection. It’s not only presented in a classic version with a shiny effect, but also with mat finishing and washed effects. The brand has combined silk with superfine wool for suits showing lightweight constructions and comfortable silhouettes, while it creates intriguing textures in the linen-wool blends of deconstructed blazers.
A Nineties’ feel gets a contemporary makeover in the featherweight garment-dyed jackets embellished with precious color effects, while the urban-chic bombers are crafted from washed silk. And, a summery and Mediterranean mood translates in the prints, inspired by refined tie and tile motifs, which bring a graphic and multicolor touch to silk shirts and practical blousons.
Lightness and versatility also define the leather offering, spanning from sophisticated reversible napa-suede blazers to suede bombers treated with wax. The collection’s fresh and relaxed feel is exalted by the color palette inspired by natural elements, in particular flowers and fruits. It includes powdery tones of indigo, periwinkle blue, hydrangea, orchid and apricot, matched with neutral hues of gray, oil green and tobacco.
In addition, Corneliani unveiled three special projects this season, – each distinguished by its own dedicated label, – which complete the offering of the brand.
The heritage of the brand, established in 1930 by Alfredo Corneliani as a trench manufacturer, is celebrated with “Beyond the Rain”, a capsule collection of four iconic raincoats, which mix tradition and innovation. Defined by four different silhouettes, ranging from a Fifties’ double-breasted style to a classic belted construction and a oversized and cocooning shape, each trench stands outs not only with its peculiar material, but also with its exclusive technical details, the precious embroideries and the sophisticated applications.
Elegance and performance meet in the “Style& Freedom” project, which, through a special offering of sweatshirts, joggers and knitted sweaters, all crafted from upscale materials, reflects the more sporty and casual soul of Corneliani.
In keeping with the hyper connected lifestyle of contemporary men, the “Connected Style” capsule includes a series of iconic pieces, – including a zippered jacket, a field style, a backpack, a small travel bag and a computer case, – which, behind an elegant and refined look, hide a high-tech soul. Each item includes a customized power bank, which through electromagnetic induction, enables to recharge the mobile phone in the pocket of a jacket or a bag. To guarantee extreme safety, all the products included in the “Connected Style” line feature a silver film protecting from radiations.
