The products made in those years are milestones in the history of fabrics and it is no coincidence that they are exhibited at the Prato Textile Museum. They had a great impact on fashion and this led Alberto to change from being a sole proprietor to a limited liability company.

In 2001 the financial newspaper “il Sole 24 ore” listed the Alberto Bardazzi S.r.L. as one of the best 500 companies in Italy and this was the most exciting period for Alberto’s professional career.

This isn’t your typical Paris Men’s Fashion Week recap that includes explicit mention of the who’s who at the event to the ambiance and sets as well as the never ending looks on glamour and style, most of which indicate what we’ll be seeing and wearing in spring and summer of 2019.
The Acne Studio show had all the ingredients of a minimalist approach to vibrant colours and design elements that gel together in strikingly cool ways. With a palette of soft muted hues to saturated tones that add warmth and depth to classic silhouettes.
With all the glitz and glamour at Paris Fashion Week Namacheko added a unique flavour that was reflected in the head turning ensembles of the Swedish/ Kurdish label. Launched by brother and sister duo- Dilan and Lezan Lurr, the brand has come a long way since its humble beginnings in 2017.
The Issey Miyake show at Paris Men’s Fashion Week-Day 3 may have been many things but nothing as apparent as the fusion of different styles, iconic feels and wrapped up in some of the best prints seen so far. Instead of just using words alone, below are some points and pictures of just how inspired and artfully eclectic this particular collection was.
What made the Wooyoungmi show unlike any of the others was the cool and interesting tie between retro elements combined with country inspired feels with a modern twist. The striking colour palette that had soothing hues drawn from nature such as buttercup yellow, dusky blue, earth tones, maroon and pale grey. The prints added further interest and authenticity to the looks that included stripes, plaid, checks and textures. Modern twists were reflected in the accessorizing, the bags, boots and hair.
Ever rebellious – Raf Simons waged a full-fledged war against the current cloud of street-wear styles hovering over the fashion world. In the time where some of the biggest names in luxury fashion are ditching luxury for street and sportswear, none more evident than Louis Vuitton's selection of Virgil Abloh as artistic director earlier this year, Raf vowed to focus on traditional menswear garments, even for new generation.
Another highly anticipated show at Paris Men's Fashion Week was the Dior Homme show that many had been looking forward to all week. Not only did the show live up to many high fashion expectations, the collection was a resounding success, then again; how could it not be, as it involved a prince, a talented artist and a double debut. Which in short means, that the House of Dior had in its wings a multitude of talented individuals working together to present a fresh take on the future of fashion from this global powerhouse.
The postponement of the Balmain Homme show according to schedule was well worth the wait. Olivier Rousteing delivered yet another collection based on rock influence, but rotating the looks around variants of glam from past eras, creating this blend of rock glamour through the decades but with a modern interpretation. So yes it was a relief to see no big hair, bold makeup and excessive piercings and tattoos.
The Alexander McQueen show for Spring/Summer 2019 was one of the best in terms of originality and style while still staying true to the brand’s design aesthetic, not forgetting the subtle inclusion of the unexpected, which is always a treat for the eyes. A very strikingly cool combination of razor sharp classic silhouettes vs a totally edgy biker-esque attitude made for interesting bedfellows to start with. The collection had a grunge glam kind of essence that moved between each ensemble with an energy that just had everyone’s attention.
Nothing could be as simple, innovative and with an impactful essence of Avant Garde than Hed Mayner at Paris Men’s Fashion Week for Spring/Summer 2019. A very intense subdued palette set the tone for the dramatic cuts, silhouettes, drapery and more, as the audience watched in amazement. The only visible colour was candy pink and powder blue in various tones and the only print was the pinstripes that were used to the minimum.
Perhaps one of the highly anticipated shows by far at Paris Men’s Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2019 was the Louis Vuitton show which showcased the work of Louis Vuitton debut designer Virgil Abloh. While the collection as expected was inspired, cohesive and very dissimilar to what Louis Vuitton customers are used to, it did wow the audience for the most part leaving a bitter sweet sentiment on many present. Given the shift of style aesthetic this scribe found an interesting cross-road between classic and artsy which added a new flavour to fashion from the brand.
The mere mention of Rick Owens and the first thing that comes to mind is breaking the rules. Hence the show that had everything from drama, deconstructed silhouettes, exaggerated elements, architectural shapes, all moved in unison with the aesthetics of the man himself. The styling and attitude of the models, the raw grunge feels and minimalist approach made this collection one of those that moved into a league of its own.
On a palette of fun, youthful colours, dominated by shades of blue, a dash of yellow, white, black and orange, Off-White designer Virgil Abloh showed a multi-dimensional look at the many ways to wear denim, adding visual interest with distressed denim, textures, knits, fleece and parachute that gels well with the quirky elements of animation, oversized silhouettes, camouflage and tie ‘n’ dye all to show-off his cool range of footwear that is a jogger and lace-up that have a chunky, army-esque appeal that is sure to liven up spring and summer of 2019.
From the abstract to the outlandish, the vibrant colours to the creative techniques of layering. Hiromichi Ochiai for Facetasm showed a collection that was every bit as eccentric as it was artistically reflective of current day global village. Including an interesting mix of different art-forms, silhouettes, styles and sentiments that evoke curiosity while hinging on folklore and the beauty of story-telling. Here’s just how Facetasm fascinated us at Paris Men’s Fashion Week for 2019.
Designers Saif Bakir and Emma Hedlund of Cmmn Swdn made opening night to Paris Men's Fashion Week every bit as memorable as the impact, energy and social awareness the collection had on the audience. Against a background of what looked like the landfills or somewhere in between, where many garments end up as waste and staying true to the hybrid element the brand is known for, the pieces shown couldn't have been any more hybrid than it was. An interesting mix of youthfulness and subculture, a mix of old-world aesthetics and contemporary, tipping the future of fashion vibes that were both edgy and elegantly sleek.
The GmbH show was not only unique but had that special eclectic quality while being relevant, fun and fashion-forward. Designer duo Serhat Isik and Benjamin Alexander pulled out all stops, no doubt; to deliver a showing of a collection I can see many people wearing in their own individual ways. It was personalised and pleasurable.
