ISAIA Fall/Winter 2018-2019 collection - The great sartorial tradition of Casalnuovo

It is a tribute to artisan workmanship that is unique in the world. Constructed yet soft silhouettes of suits and jackets with a sporty yet elegant touch combined with an all-Neapolitan “sprezzatura” (i.e. nonchalance). A slight fifties and sixties retro mood can be seen in the proportions and fit of the garments. Not by chance, the little of Isaia’s proposal for next winter is: Casalnuovo Collection.

Antonio Marras Fall/Winter 2018-2019 collection

Marras imagined a British-Sardinian gentleman, fond of hunting with hounds in the wild countryside, but driven by nostalgia and a sense of home. “His style is a mash-up of memories.” A feel of rustic elegance was threaded through the collection, which was focused on outerwear. Peacoats and parkas were patchworked from an array of tweeds, jacquards, corduroy velvets, tartans, and felted wools. Worn inside-out exposing soigne linings, they had oversize, protective proportions; and though they looked sporty and functional, they conveyed the typical Marras flair for eccentric practicality. The British-Sardinian nobleman in question was obviously fond of a dapper touch of tailoring. Indulging in thick, knitted robe de chambre and parading sumptuous brocade tuxedo jackets.

The managers undertook a detailed Thinking Process analysis of the supply chain, based on the principles of the Theory of Constraints and decided to move towards a win-win partnership between all parties involved from the wool through fabric, machinery and equipment to sewing factories and fashion consultants to the consumer. The Sales Director of Men's Fashion Group Dean Manev and Martina Martini (Art Director) made a presentation about Made To Measure and Made To Order services during the International TOCICO conference in Berlin, Germany on 19 July.
