Finally airconditioning! My first thought when I entered the Canali headquarters. Monday June 25, my second day at Milan Fashion Week – I skipped Saturday – and still too hot. Fashion Week is not a relaxed trip. In fact, it’s always running around, a fashion show here, a party there… and when it’s about 40°C outside, sweat becomes your middle name. Yes, I was more than happy I could see the Canali show without melting.
The Spring Summer 2013 collection is all about the ability to mix genres and styles, sacred and profane, tailored and casual, to produce the sensation of an eternal holiday, good humor and a positive approach to life. A retro inspired collection with eyecatchers, such as newsboy hats, neck scarves, suede oxfords and wingtips, to accessorize their crisp checked jackets and striped suits. It’s all about white next Spring Summer and also Canali dressed their men in different shades of this non-color, but spicing it up with emerald green, baby blue, dusty pink and lavender. Classy with – thanks to the high-end sneakers – a sporty touch. Yes, Canali is truly the best tailoring brand of the moment. Too classic for me, but nice!
