Brioni A/W 2016
Mood board: Brendan Mullane said he was bringing his Brioni man on a voyage ’up in the mountains, escaping in a forest as a storm advances,’ but let’s face it, Brioni’s clothes are made to cut like wildfire through the urban sidewalk. In glowing shades of navy, forest green, charcoal and black, Mullane created another perfect wardrobe of fine suiting and his signature outerwear inspired by his traditional menswear fabrications.
Best in show: There were certainly some striking pieces influenced by Mullane’s voyage theme, such as a sweatshirt cut like a tunic from uber fine cashmere, but we loved Brioni’s basic suiting more, perfected this season with a slim trouser and cropped, double breasted jacket with two perfect front pockets.
Finishing touches: The accessories will work just as well on forrest hike as they will in a swampy city street. Stiff alpine boots were worn with formal suits along with oversized totes and backpacks with an array of shoulder strap contraptions.
