Any guy that owns an expensive suit knows that covering it up with an overcoat kind of defeats the purpose. You invest money into your suit collection because you’re proud of the brand, the fit and the style. Layering a floor-length coat on top of a luxury designer suit almost feels like a mortal sin. But, what if we told you that you could actually elevate your suit with certain styles of long coats for men?
Celebrities have been wearing tweed on the big screen, and on television for many years. The costume is, after all, a way to help depict the character they are portraying, particularly in period dramas. Basil Rathbone and Jeremy Brett both wore tweed in their portrayal of Sherlock Holmes. The modern day Sherlock also sported stylish tweeds; Jude Law’s Dr. Watson wore a Harris tweed suit, Benedict Cumberbatch’s tweed overcoat, and of course the period drama Downton Abbey where virtually the whole male cast is dressed in windowpane tweed.
The canons of style are undergoing a period of upheaval, and this is also reflected in fabrics for men’s fashion. Fabrics today are required to be innovative, to redefine tradition without distorting it, to present products that are dynamic and wearable, for the active man who is utterly contemporary.
Marras imagined a British-Sardinian gentleman, fond of hunting with hounds in the wild countryside, but driven by nostalgia and a sense of home. “His style is a mash-up of memories.” A feel of rustic elegance was threaded through the collection, which was focused on outerwear. Peacoats and parkas were patchworked from an array of tweeds, jacquards, corduroy velvets, tartans, and felted wools. Worn inside-out exposing soigne linings, they had oversize, protective proportions; and though they looked sporty and functional, they conveyed the typical Marras flair for eccentric practicality. The British-Sardinian nobleman in question was obviously fond of a dapper touch of tailoring. Indulging in thick, knitted robe de chambre and parading sumptuous brocade tuxedo jackets.

ARMY LOVERS - The rigour of military clothing is softened by romantic, ultra-feminine touches. This creates a look that marries two very different but mutually attractive worlds. The key fabric is cotton, all kinds of cotton: gabardine, canvas and jersey for outerwear are turned into trench coats, multi-pocket jackets and parkas. Cotton teamed with linen, silk and viscose creates blouses and shirts, T-shirts, dresses, trousers and skirts. A variety of weights, volumes and layering is instrumental in taking the edge off the basic theme.
The lightness of the muslins and the seemingly random layering of jersey and ultra-fine knitted sweaters offer the appropriate compromise to help us accept this contrast of two styles united to tell a single story. The palette centres around powdery shades of pinks, greens and greys. Optical white ensures occasional flashes of light.
