The Prefall Collection redefines the leading man’s favorites through proportions that closely follow the lines of the body. Black and white interspersed with crisp primary colors and subtle prints. Unexpectedly, the style is at once radical and tailored.
Proportions are either fit to the body or boxy. Sartorial satisfaction comes in the way of soft suits with a deconstructed mood. Lapels are narrow and the only shirts have small, retro-style rounded collars. Blazers and double-breasted suits trade shirts for turtlenecks in favor of a more contemporary look. The classic blazer takes on the wearable softness of a cardigan.
Deconstruction also characterizes military jackets, worn with relaxed pants for a cargo-style leisure suit. For the rebel inside every man, biker jackets and bombers in timeless leather. The new parka becomes short and boxy. Pants are supple and slim, often creased, and alternate with riding styles that open at the ankle and employ equestrian details. Abbreviated hems give way to new shoes with crepe soles.
COLORS and MATERIALS
Chromatic contrasts meet the tailor’s iconic fabrics. A series of designs features authentic Casentino – the distinctive textile achieved from Italian weaving techniques. This material defines the Florentine orange peacoat with Gucci crest buttons.
The classic double-breasted coat in camel-colored Casentino paired with a red cashmere turtleneck and black pants. Black monochrome blazers in corduroy with plongé leather details and the double-breasted grey flannel stretch suit. Double-faced workings for the camel-color cashmere jacket with yellow lining.
Gingham, traditional pinstripes, classic flannels, or wool canvas created on a jersey base. For an innovative take on formalwear. Meticulous black for nappa stretch pants and plongé leather outerwear. Spots of grey and black create a miniature leopard print across cashmere knits. For evening, expect the unexpected: the black velvet blazer, with a classic tuxedo shirt and bowtie, perfectly paired with orange wool silk pants.
Urban essentials. The signature duffle bag undergoes a reinterpretation in handsome hues of the House’s Diamante leather. Bold black or bumblebee yellow for soft leather briefcases.
The understated sneaker, the rugged military boot boasting Goodyear construction, and the bump-toe lace-up. A thick winter sole reinforces the latest horsebit loafer, also designed as an ankle boot. Retro-style sunglasses reminiscent of 60’s frames. Printed silk scarves worn layered under a sweater. The Gucci Dive watch with an interchangeable black rubber strap.
