Lineage

Jil Sander’s minimalist aesthetic effervesces through colour blocking and a subdue, but striking, use of colour in Rodolfo Paglialunga’s debut men’s collection. Dressing out of necessity, the garments reflect an essential selection of belted, double-breasted trench coats, bomber jackets with a hint of horizontal detail around the neckline, and the all-important inclusion of teddy bear mohair. Trousers were generously proportioned, with pleats for structure, and longer cuffs at the hemline resting over a bold, chunky and ‘futuristic’ shoe choice.

Two-toned polo knits featured in navy, burgundy and mustard, with hints of dark green peaking above sweater collars. A dark, dusty pink suit stole the show, as did a long leather hooded sweater with zip detail. Wintry colours were displayed and paired in an understated fashion with beige and grey pieces, as fine tailoring with clean and classic lines were given a contemporary edge with drawstring cinched waists and oversized pockets.
