The “upside-down you turn me” world of the spectacles’ duo strikes again this summer.
As a major reference, India, reinvented through a series of playful outfits that hide a pertinent “Monsieur” mastering.
And “Monsieur” implies also the modern, young Gentleman blinded by style twists. Codes of the contemporary city smart and codes of the vibrant colors and fabrics blend into urban harmony.

The main pieces of the collection reveal to be the tunic and the shirt. A sort of smash hit upon which a series of items collide to explain why and how protocols are breakable.
Features of soft and relax feelings, like a nonchalant wave, hit the runway. Most of it is lightweight, with cottons and nylon.

The color floating of India’s landscape depicted on Monsieur’s silhouette ranges in pale to bright salmon and orange, whereas black & white and grey sustain the balance. Decoration details as these hand-embroidered mirrors, eternal symbols of India’s insight, glow the collection’s rhythm and jodhpur-like trousers go with the flow.

A Gentleman and an officer are undefined without their uniforms. The tuxedo vision of things here is kind of heroic, by the mix of fabrics, the mastery within the use of brights and the awarding of the perfect accessories, sneakers incl.

Admiration is discipline.[/wide]
