A bold move, an uncomplicated message, an energetic slant. No backdrop setting, no big theme. Removed from obvious referenced, the product is the king: alone under the spotlight, with its immediate power. Andrea Pompilio Fall/Winter 2018, embodies an emphasis on well-made, desirable pieces. Back to the essence, with a refreshing attitude.
Capturing the mood of the moment and the timelessness of men’s classics, it does what trademark Andrea Pompilio style is best known for: taking the ordinary and turning it into an extra-ordinary, individual statement.
A focus collection, big in flavour and compact in size, leaving space for more transitional pieces ad online exclusives.
To add a dash of quirkiness to wardrobe commonplaces, checks and houndstooth checks brighten up with pop threads, in an eclectic mix of patterns, from formal geometries to floral tapestries, to unexpected tie-dyes.
Colors and graphics click perfectly in jacquard stripes on luxe knits, sewn inside-out, and intarsia bands on bowling shirts, with French seams for a handmade effect.
Updated with raw-cut hems, flannel shirts have fluo sleeves or contrasting yokes in suit fabric; sport inserts in lemon yellow add a striking touch to hooded outerwear in nylon and polyester.
Worn throughout, loafers get extra colorful, with ponyskin and calf leather outlined by micro studs.
Tradition meets innovation, heritage meets performance. Double-face baggy pants in stiff Jap fabric alternate with slim-fitted denim with discolored creases, as marked by old-school ironing.
A 50s staple, the egg-shaped coat is rendered in a vibrant orange/loden green combination, with statement half-belt details, while workwear vests qualify as the styling trick of the season, revisited in cotton jersey with open sides and tie-up details.
Along with seasonal slogans, the brand’s signature is found in vintage-flavored embroidery, impressed on sweatshirts but also on big labels sewn to the sartorial pieces’ sleeves.
Oversized parkas in ultra shiny nylon are marked by white topstitching, a signature throughout the collection. Shearling booties summon cliché winter footwear, taken to a whole new dimension.
Past meets present, as streetwear vibes corrupt even the most prosaic of pieces.
