Manuel Ritz presented his latest collection for Spring/Summer 2018. Relaxed silhouettes and nomad-style looks, alongside sportswear elements with a hand-crafted yet technical flavour, outline a new concept of comfort. The new organic trend, Biophilia, leads the way. Key garments are the destructured jackets in “molten” effect wool, wool overchecks, fused micro-textures, boucle pinstripes, blousons in wool or coarse-look cotton matched with soft trousers in jersey, wool or boucle wool flannel. The focus is on limited edition textures: Winter Garden, all-over flowers in cool shades, warmed with a touch of red.
Coats look to be less bulky, and jackets sturdier. Everything is cosy comfort or rigorously structured; outerwear grows more radical. Hijacked classics create a play on fantasy from top to bottom.
