Canali Fall Winter 2023 – 2024 present THE DUALITY OF ELEGANCE at Milan Men’s Fashion Week
The definition of masculinity, today, is far from being univocal. Masculinity has rightly gained a plurality of nuances and feelings which has permanently changed the way men approach the daily act of getting dressed. As a purveyor of the finest, artisanally made in Italy garments, CANALI acknowledges such changes, and undertakes this new path, an innovated brand approach, offering men instruments they can use to express their way of being at their best.
How such garments are made, following an approach that is gentle in construction and silhouette but is also gentle towards the environment is what defines the CANALI way of doing things: one that is subtle, natural, never forced. Gentle, again.
Final interpretation is left to customers: each one different, each one unique. Plurality is key.
A renewed aesthetic, an increasingly relaxed and elegant way of dressing, a lively and refined dress code.
Thus, the new silhouette of Canali Fall Winter 2023 – 2024 is soft and relaxed, with a stress on comfort as a facilitator of inner elegance, even in eveningwear. Jackets, coats, jumpers, and trousers flow smoothly on the body, allowing movement, embracing multiple occasions of use. Diamond quilted capes are both practical and dramatic. Moving between heritage and the contemporary, jackets and coats sport traditional menswear patterns blown up to gain a neat graphic allure. The same motifs appear as jacquards on jumpers, as prints on shirts, on textile accessories. Focus is on a new formal and versatile luxury casualwear.
The Canali sartorial know-how shines in the DOUBLE part collection, a series of handmade items constructed with a extremely complex technique which results in unlined, seamless garments with invisible stitching.
This luxurious way of making things and the strong artisanal approach characterizes suits, jackets, and coats, but also, innovatively, smart pieces such as shirt-jackets and hybrid outerwear pieces, and expands, the wardrobe with new, elegant possibilities for Canali Fall Winter 2023 – 2024. The apparent simplicity, here, is in fact an amplification of sophistication and ease that’s the result of an updated savoir-faire.
Sustainability, for Canali, is the ultimate expression of gentleness: a form of respect for the environment and the whole human community. This ethical mindset, which is a pillar for the brand, finds its further exemplification in the items labeled as CARE – produced with high quality certified organic or recycled fabrics, where even the padding of the quilted garments is made with the scraps of fabrics from the production cycle, a first experiment in upcycling.
The use of the finest materials has always characterized the brand: wool, cashmere, cashmere-silk, silk, organic cotton. The palette is a dense and masculine amalgamation of earthy notes of green, brown, camel and neutrals, metropolitan tones of gray and black, and accents of blue and red. Duvet scarves are intentionally bulky while gloves, hats, backpacks, and shoes, either in leather or shearling, blend-in with the looks for Canali Fall Winter 2023 – 2024.
The idea of plural masculinity creates a sense of unity and belonging, gently.
