New season, new designer for Brioni, which has appointed Norbert Stumpfl following Nina-Maria Nitsche’s exit. Stumpfl, who previously worked with Haider Ackermann at Berluti, cannot conceal his excitement for his new role, enthusing about the “spectacular fabrics” he now gets to work with. These fabrics took shape on impeccable outerwear, such as a precious cashmere camel coat, leather and suede used for shirts and trousers, Japanese denim for more shirts and jeans, and more cashmere for paisley-printed silk-lined blazers. Everything was about teaming formal and casual, so impeccable suits were styled with sneakers and thin crew neck sweaters or turtlenecks and track pants were paired with a luxurious coat. The evening wear included a salmon pink velvet jacket and a Fred Astaire-style tailcoat.
