A leisurely stroll along the Adriatic coastline, shortly after the spring equinox. This is the concept behind Alberto Guardiani’s Spring/Summer 2018 collection for men, where the muse for this season is the , who saunters down the promenade, inspired by the brilliant colours and dynamic architectural contrasts. Beneath an intense blue sky, rows of coloured umbrellas and boats with imaginative names sit waiting for summer to return, against a backdrop of blue and white beach huts and monumental, pastel-coloured buildings.
A collection that reflects the laid-back attitude of the Italian holiday look: contrasting white calf and blue suede (navy, yes, but also royal blue, cerulean and ultramarine) become the leitmotif of the collection, offset by sailor-style detailing, like stripy prints and FRRST boat-style lettering.
The striking contrast of architectural graphic elements appear on navy or cherry- coloured suede, accented with red, sky blue and even orange embroidery, for designs with a sartorial, casual finish.
This relaxed yet sombre mood is perfectly reflected in, ONESOUL, the product of the season, which has a highly tailored, relaxed look.
