Rich Textures Combine for Killer Looks

By Marcellous L. Jones

Milan, Italy – Rich textures are the stars of the new Canali look for FW 2013/14. Velvet, woven, cashmere, fur, wool felt, silk, etc.   The house sent out irreproachably cut suits in warm colors like brown, chocolate, tobacco, etc.  We see total looks and composed three piece looks with charm.  Slimming double-breasted redingotes with large copper buttons to highlight them often times come with fur collars.

The six-button, double-breasted suits have double fonts in the back. Their lapels are short cut and semi-wide for a very formal look. Short cropped-jackets in burgundy are paired with trousers in Bordeaux. Large weekend and city bags come in burgundy.

It is interesting to note that Canali is the only house this season to thus far pay real attention to cuffs. They keep their trousers cut closely to the body but show off the ankle boots with the addition of their trousers cut one to two inches above the ankles. The trousers are then finished with 1.5 to 2 inch cuffs.

A blue from the seventies in velvet is created into a blazer and matching vest.  They are worn together with paired together trousers in navy blue velvet. The look is deadly.
