Editorial

Stefano Pilati’s reflections on the relationship between luxury and sustainability produced a green collection designed for a manager that cares about the planet. The materials used for clothes and coats came straight from the Harris Tweed archives, which were then needle-punched with polyurethane or with recycled plastic yarns that gave a ‘glazed’ look. Chiaroscuro check prints alternated with smooth velvets in dusty undergrowth tones that emphasised the glossy effects, to which rubber and black leather were added for some outfits. Not just green, then, but also a clear outdoor feel, both in the myriad outerwear and in the fluid trousers with elastic cuffs ideal for cycling to the office. The formal suit, mainly worn as separates, was worn with a backpack to the back or front, a peaked cap and solid work gloves.
