POETIC, UNCOMPROMISINGLY ELEGANT & RESOLUTELY CHIC
By Marcellous L. JONES
Milan, Italy – Filipo Scuffi takes us on summer beach vacation – 1930’s style. The looks in the Spring/Summer 2014 are resolutely chic and uncompromisingly elegant. However, they managed to muster up a welcomed sentiment of relaxation.
The trousers are straight but more loosely cut in some silhouettes. When we find shorts, they are paired with short jackets. Then we have a double-breasted knit cardigan worn with one of the crepe trousers. Shorts also appear in suede as part of a suit.
Lots of Ostrich skin is used in the collection right from the gas to the shoes. Some shoes in derby styles also have ostrich embellishments. The skin also finds its way into some blazers.
Fine leather suspenders are used to raise even higher the high waists of the loose cut trousers. The look is completed with a fine knit top. Tuxedo shorts with the out seam piping in black satin waistband are worn with a knit top and is finally accessorized with a large backpack. This gives modern relevancy to those who are working in the city.
There are lovely silhouettes with all the models appear in beautiful looks done in lots of crocodile too. One of the most poetic pieces in the collections comes in the form of the stylish dress dresses in white Egyptian cotton. The shirts where wrapped like a bathrobe. The have cufflinks and black round piping.
