Just on time for its 110th anniversary, Italian men’s sartorial brand Luigi Bianchi Mantova is launching a curated tuxedo collection exclusively dedicated to women.
Finding its inspiration in the linear frameworks of Northern Italy’s 1900’s architecture, the Luigi Bianchi Mantova “Flirt” women’s tuxedo line is comprised of four styles – two single-breasted jackets and two trousers – all designed to be worn as separates or total looks.
From the peak lapel blazer to its shawl collar counterpart and all the way to the pants, available both in a slim and wide-leg model, each piece reflects the philosophy behind the aesthetic of the collection: a complex assortment of precious fabrics combined with Luigi Bianchi Mantova’s signature sartorial construction.
Always keen on using the finest Italian textiles as an intrinsic aspect of the garments, with this selection, Lubiam, -the parent company of brands Luigi Bianchi Mantova and L.B.M. 1911, – channels its heritage expertise to the world of women’s fashion.
“This capsule collection is a homage to the woman’s essential wardrobe,” said Giovanni Bianchi, CEO and style director. “The four basic elements of two pants and two blazers can allow for different combinations and are a celebration of women’s powerful role and understated elegance in the world today. We think our clients will love the pieces for three reasons: they are perfectly versatile, they show off the figure in a way that isn’t obvious, and they are quick to wear.”
While drawing its sartorial model from Luigi Bianchi Mantova’s centennial expertise in menswear, the tuxedos were designed to address the needs of a non-conformist, independent, and free-spirited woman who is often on the go, flawlessly moving from business events to social rendezvous and, why not, to her own wedding day.
Keeping up with the company’s philosophy of outsourcing and mixing the most unusual blends of fabrics, the women’s debut features pure virgin wool mixed with either lavish mohair or durable silk, allowing the fabric to slightly stretch for maximum comfort.
Just released on time for spring/summer 2021, the color palette is classically monochrome, showcasing different shades of total black and total white.
The Luigi Bianchi Mantova Flirt women’s tuxedo collection is entirely Made in Italy and is available in Europe and North America, with a price of $ 350 for the pants and $935 for the jackets.
