THE RE-STRUCTURED MAN
While many of the collections in Milan made tailoring an afterthought, designer Alessandro Sartori confidently communicated the importance of clean lines and new ideas about texture, construction and silhouette. In a collection entitled The Re-structured Man, a man’s basic wardrobe components like the blazer, overcoat and sweater were all deconstructed and put back together again in new and interesting ways. Exposed seams on suits communicated the “work in progress” approach, and patchworked sweaters in tonal neutrals were especially strong. A long quilted duvet coat seemed even more luxurious when offered in a rich charcoal and chocolate palette. Jersey, flannel and leather were the predominant materials used for F/W 10, perfect for upholding the concept of “soft structure”.
