The Vitale Barberis Canonico wool mill, one of the oldest in the world with more than 350 years’ history and with the thirteenth generation of the same family at the helm, presents the new Spring/Summer 2019 collection at the Milano Unica XXVI edition. For this collection, the designers were inspired by the colours, the surroundings, and the graphics of NOMADISM: from the desert Tuaregs, to the Mongolian populations of the tundra, to the Maasai of the African uplands, a nomad by his very nature is constantly on the move. The animate and inanimate things all around him must be suited to his predisposition to travel. Most of all, his clothing.
Composed Dynamism. Order materializes from disorder. Sculptural contours delineate geometric figures. Intersecting lines contrast the material with the immaterial. Tonal glows and slumbering darkness surrender to the spirituous play of light. Missoni’s A/W 2017 Menswear Collection draws inspiration from the concrete barriers, metallic enclosures, oxidized mazes and jutting appendages of the subterranean and industrial networks that form the skeletal structures on which our indifferent urban surrounds are erected. This is the backdrop upon which this season’s Missoni Man comes to life.

Isolated and hostage to his flights of fancy, James juxtaposed the fantastical forms of his extraordinary art collection with his stunningly natural new-found surroundings to create what he called his Surrealist Xanadu.
Like the 24-hour cycle of a day, the collection opened and closed with darkness. The opener was a high-hemmed jacket and wide straight pants in rugged, almost-black blue cotton above a black knit accented by another knit—this one raspberry—both hemmed with irregular castellations of moth eaten-ness. At collection’s end, a cluster of black looks were elevated both in fabrication and decoration—they included an all-black Hendrix-flavored hussar’s jacket—but they were still black.
'We looked within this city /New York City/ we love and found details, experiences and monuments that molded our collection. The Brooklyn bridge was one of those monuments. A bridge crosses and expanse of water and is ultimately about connection. The Fall collection is about bringing these experiences to life through a rich Nautical filter'.
Charles Darwin in 1859 gave us a theory of evolution, the science of natural selection, an argument for the ‘survival of the fittest’, and a story of how man triumphs. He was an avid explorer in his youth, travelling the world for field study, discovering and collecting specimens, making a Victorian enquiry into who we are. For Autumn/Winter 2016, the collection embraces the spirit of travel and a world newly open to exploration and the gathering of collectibles, but in the way of the McQueen tradition of flora, fauna and memento mori. This is a collection obsessed with the elegance that ‘survives’ the struggle for life.
