“The Spring Summer 2012 collection is animated by a new spirit that springs from an increasingly free and uninhibited sense of style and elegance, brimming with references to other cultures, but without losing its deeply Italian personality.

The suit becomes a means of personal expression, a quest for fine detailing and style that venture beyond strict, impersonal rules, no longer de rigeur exclusively for business, but also a point of reference on your own time.

Jackets are shorter and hug the waist, shoulders are even softer and lapels are higher and narrower in the most metropolitan lines. Narrow trousers for suits are softer and wider when worn with separate jackets, especially the Kei, which is presented for the first time in a double-breasted six-button version, or the new Nawab five-button version with Korean collar.

As always the fabrics are made from the finest natural fibres: silk, the undisputed protagonist of the entire collection, linen, wool – often combined with the previous two – and cotton.”
