When I hear ‘Italy’, I immediately think about superior style, fashion, craftsmanship and design. Fashion has always been an important part of Italian cultural life and society, and Italians are well known for their attention of dressing-up well; “la bella figura”, or good impression, remains traditional.
This is the essence of the iconic Italian brand, Canali. Canali was founded in Italy in 1934 and has become synonymous with style, elegance and sophistication. Over the past eight decades, they have built an unassailable reputation for impeccable suiting and made-to-measure craftsmanship. Their collections are made from the highest quality materials using traditional methods combined with an increasingly contemporary aesthetic result.
I recently discovered this brand and absolutely love the classic looks and contemporary formal wear. If you’re more discerning about your appearance, I’d recommend you take advantage of their excellent ‘Su Misura’ service, which allows you to create a suit that is absolutely unique and made exclusively for you. Their extremely knowledgeable and expert made-to-measure specialists help select the style, fit and fabric from over 500 options. The latter are renewed each season and many are made exclusively for Canali. I’d expect nothing less from a family so steeped in the best traditions of Italian design and culture.
Every modern man needs one or two tailored suits, which will definitely make you stand out in the crowd, boost your confidence and make you feel good. It’s your suit of armour for the day, whether for battle in the corporate boardroom or to celebrate with family and friends, from weddings to anniversaries.
For me, the Canali collection exudes a simple, classic, timeless look. Less is more, in this case. Or as another famous Italian, Leonardo da Vinci, said long ago, “Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication”.
Below they describe their Fall Winter 2018 collection, ‘The Light of Dawn’, and I can imagine myself in New York’s Central Park or an early modern sunrise over London’s changing skyline of old and new.
The Light Of Dawn, FW18 Collection in Canali’s Words:
“The first light of dawn gently illuminates the city, still silent and tucked under a cover of morning mist. A man’s gaze unfolds, undisturbed, over an urban landscape: avenues come to life as the dark of night abdicates to colours, shapes and details. It is a moment of awakening – a pageant of chiaroscuro that replays in cities across the globe as they reveal their true appearances”.
Everyone knows I have a weakness for coats. Canali’s Fall Winter 2018 Collection doesn’t disappoint. Besides the rich fabrics, precision tailoring and contemporary design, I love how their selection of coats combine practicality and elegance. The coats can be worn over a classic suit or a more casual pants-and-sweater ensemble. The colours are just so easy to combine and can make you look fantastic.
You can never go wrong with ‘Made in Italy’. Canali is a fine expression of this timeless tradition. Make sure you check them out for your next purchase.
