Global luxury e-commerce platform Farfetch has worked with luxury Italian retailer Nugnes 1920 to curate a unique edit of modern tailoring pieces. Reece Crisp, menswear buying manager at Farfetch, worked closely with Beppe Nugnes, CEO of Nugnes 1920, to build the edit of essential items; redefining the traditional wardrobe staple for the contemporary male customer. The new edit will combine classic pieces with sportswear-inspired items that will be styled with casual wardrobe favorites to create an elevated yet laid back take on tailoring.

The modern tailoring edit will offer pieces from Ami and Lardini, as well as key items from E.Tautz, Incotex, Harris Wharf London, Pence and PT01. Stand-out outerwear styles will be featured from Hevo, Sealup and Cini; as well as pieces from Italian brands Brunello Cucinello, Boglioli and Barena. The edit will also include knitwear from Nuur and Roberto Collina and accessories from PB 0110.

“Every day menswear dressing has lost all rigidity of the past, becoming much more flexible,” said Nugnes. “We wanted to present a men’s tailoring offering that reflected this move towards relaxed modern elegance within a sartorial style. This edit allows the modern man to actively integrate classic items and taste with modern cuts and stand-out pieces. Farfetch is the perfect partner; being such a dynamic company that constantly succeeds in presenting a unique online selection of luxury pieces from their boutique and brand partners worldwide.”

“The suit is and will always be an important part of a man’s wardrobe, but as menswear has developed over recent years, so have ways in which men dress up and down,” added Crisp. “For autumn/winter ‘16, we have explored the styling of the suit and the ways in which tailoring can be edited to enable the modern man; to mix and match and create a unique style.”
