A tame, preppier side of Roberto Verino came out for AW17/18 at MBFW Madrid. Staunch suit jackets and ascot-style silk neck scarves graced the models of the off-runway catwalk. Suits in black, navy and white were fairly basic except for the “RV” logo sewn into them, a tribute to a dapper Ralph Lauren, perhaps?
Although the Spanish market has slightly recovered from the hit of the economic crisis some years back, fashion has still taken a toll. Perhaps a return to the basics are what Spain is looking for at the moment?
Only time will tell, but men, if you need something to wear to work, pick up a classical RV suit.
