A fair and refined personality - this is the distinctive feature of the company's Spring-Summer 2017 Collection. Looking at the male total look, where the suit is still acting the main role with its tartan fabrics and sophisticated designs distinguishing the style of the contemporary man, the shirt element becomes an accessory without loosing the basic importance.
Creating a fair that breathes in synch with the urban environment means generating a series of flows, triggering a virtuous network of influences, offering a wider audience the opportunity to approach luxury in its truest form.
