White shirt, black tie and tartan: these are the constants that define the contemporary dandy at Corneliani. This season, Sergio Corneliani, Creative Director at the Mantuan maison, has dreamed up a contemporary man who is elegant and discreetly knows it. The jacket from the collection sits easy at the waist, and the cut of the shoulder is soft and natural. The elongated silhouette is tempered by the crisp but short trousers, without the afterthought of a turn-up.
The coat is as fulsomely long as ever, with a half-belt or to wear with a belt. The clean, minimal design of the biker-style jacket with its matte-finish crocodile stands out, creating an unostentatious matte look, reflected in the ample bags to be carried in the hand.
The strictly cashmere suit is impeccable in the ash-grey fine Prince of Wales check, brown bird’s eye, or the sobriety of solid dark blue and jet black. And, the knitwear keeps evolving with a wealth of original variants: in the sleeves of the jersey parka, and in a highly desirable variety of leather or sheepskin short jackets right up to the cardigan, heavy jacket in an easy Black Watch tartan and the jumper with jacquard effect courtesy of interwoven leather threads.
The collection expertly underlines the value of sartorial savoir-faire with an innovative twist, where the blue-green tartan pattern – which finds expression in the overcoat and the jacket, in the trousers, the heavy jacket and even the bag inserts – becomes the iconic motif of the autumn/winter 2014 wardrobe by Corneliani. The collection is painted in colours like deepest blue, black, different shades of grey and moss green.
