The collection features an assortment of garments in super light cotton and silk, with sharp lines but impalpable colors like yellow, sky blue, water, rose pink and wisteria featured in loosely flowing t-shirts.
The classic Hollywood style also makes inroads to this collection featuring dress styles of so many classic and film noir movies that wrote the history of American cinema in 50s and 60s.
From that period, for its unlined or semi-lined jackets, the collection borrows rounded peak lapels, constructed but soft shoulders, rounded breast pockets in pure tailor made style, and a contoured cut with fitted waist, presented in both single-breasted models with peak lapels and six-button double-breasted versions.
Classic graphical pinstripes have become light linen fabrics, accessories are light and understated, and the trenches have been transformed into dust coats. Also making a runway appearance is Canali’s signature Kei jacket, which demonstrates its versatility again and again, playfully choosing strong colours, striking colour combinations and an elegance that is always somewhat outspoken to faithfully reproduce the style of a city that seems like one big stage.
