Who would argue that fine menswear is synonymous with made-in-Italy? The art of Sprezzatura (style that appears effortless) is said to be intrinsic to Italian men. (Something in the pasta perhaps, or the wine?) In any case, Luca Faloni menswear has clearly mastered the art of relaxed elegance with fairly priced luxury pieces that combine to build a perfect wardrobe. With ultra-soft fabrics in colors derived from nature and styling that’s both comfortable and contemporary, it’s suddenly easy to elevate your look.
Its formula for the ultimate wardrobe? Combine the world’s finest fabrics with artisan craftsmanship (fine-tuned over generations) and reimagined classic design. The result: a modern take on Italian style that showcases the personality of the wearer via understated wardrobe essentials. Nothing shouts because nothing has to: it’s all about class.
Some of MR’s favorite Luca Faloni pieces: the chunky knit cashmere cardigan in camel; the oatmeal silk/cashmere quarter-zip and perfect brown leather weekender; the blue cashmere hoodie worn over quintessential white oxford shirt; the hunting green cashmere zip-front cardigan worn with pink oxford shirt and elephant grey Cortina cotton chinos, the pure cashmere cable crew in soft dusty rose. So many of these perfect pieces transcend the seasons to become wardrobe favorites that men turn to, year after year.
A note on sourcing: Founded on a philosophy of sustainability and support for local artisans, Luca Faloni uses pure cashmere and silk-cashmere only from Cariaggi, linen from one of the oldest Italian mills, brushed cotton from Grandi & Rubinelli, pique from an historic mill in Veneto, and full-grain leather from Santa Croce in Tuscany. These producers rely on a long history of tradition and expertise to create sustainable fabrics that offer durability, comfort and quality, while always standing the test of time.
