Silhouette. Relaxed and individual
The look is soft, with a certain nonchalance. Outerwear, tailored pieces, shirts and knitwear caress the body without revealing it. Fluid lines and multiple layers suggest a take on style that is both protective and pragmatic.
Jackets and outerwear. Soft and elegant.
¾ length coats, either double-breasted or single-breasted with a peak lapel, are essential to the traveler look. The cut is lean, and the absence of extra fillings makes even the sturdier-looking pieces totally weightless.
Edwardian style coats are raw hemmed, while facing creates a layered effects on jackets and coats, peeking from the hem.
Dip-dyed sleeveless coats are worn as vest; hooks ‘n eye closures and studs in place of sleeve buttons give an unexpected twist to sleek tailored jackets.
Vests add a gentlemanly touch.
Trousers. Slouchy and trim.
Tailored combats made in textured suiting fabrics create a paper bag effect on top, then slim down towards the bottom.
Shirts. Sophisticated yet rustic.
Meant to be worn outside of trousers as both a top or an under-layer, shirts come elongated and raw-hemmed, with wing collars and textured patters creating an intense visual contrast.
Knitwear. Warm and cozy.
Chunky long cardigan-jackets. Hand-knit alpaca and wool sweaters. Gauzy Fairisle crewnecks. Bonded and raw hemmed knit jackets. Knit is mixed with woven in sturdy cardigans and sweaters with either backs or sleeves made of textured wool fabric.
Body-hugging washed suede bikers. Brushed shearling coats. Felt-lined suede coats.
Fabrics. Intensely textural.
Wool and linen mixes; cold-dyed moleskine; seersucker effect wool. Metal threads add another layer of textural richness, as does scorching and scratching on surfaces.
Colors. Organic and muted.
Shades of brown: chocolate, mocha, rust. Vicuna. Wine red. Black.
Accessories. Scarves are paramount: large or slim, with or without leather tassels. Square-end narrow sashes can be worn as scarves or neckties. Fingerless driving gloves. Leather and felt lace-up boots with a chunky sole. Sandblasted briefcases, leather and felt totes and leather bags are integral to the traveler’s spirit.
