Autumn Winter 19/20 opts for solidity and a tactile and visual abundance, without excess. A season that: chooses originality as a key differentiating factor; relishes joyful, sporty and sensual multiplicity; plays with fantasy and imperfect harmonies; offers clear solutions as to innovative aesthetic and eco-responsible mechanisms; lays the groundwork for new, elegant and comfortable casualwear; draws on workwear and functionality to shake up the noble luxury of materials and shapes.
Attitude is identity. In a world choked by material overabundance, luxury is no longer in maximalist declarations that scream the wealth of their owner, but in the small gestures that speak of care, of attention, of love. Self-possession becomes the only currency by which to measure true worth.

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.
