Italian-inspired for an Italian brand, Cifonelli presented their SS18 collection at Milan Fashion Week Uomo. Inspired by the sweet life of 1950s Rome, the collection wass stylish, chic and and modern, despite it’s 50s ideals. After chatting with the designer, BDMOTP decided this was Cifonelli’s most intricate collection yet, and we can’t wait to sport some of the pieces.
With soft tones of grey and beige plaid (and let’s not forget the traditional black and white) the collection has a very Cary Grant vibe, thanks to the single-breasted jackets with three-button closures, a relaxed yet tailored fit that sits well on any man, despite size or shape.
The Renatto jacket is another BDMOTP favorite, featuring a four-button closure and patch pockets. The Paolo jacket is a bit heavier for a chillier spring day, finished in both tweed and suede. No matter how hot or warm, the straw fedoras and open-collared shirts will keep a gentleman cool and sexy at the same time. Sandals and snazzy dress shoes are reminiscent of the 1950s inspirations, and we can just see one of the models now climbing onto his Vespa for a quick spin around the city. Or wait, was that now, or was it 1955? Could be either!
