Pal Zileri Lab AW13 Collection
Looking to add a touch of Italian chic to next season’s offerings, the Lab line from Pal Zileri has released its rather sleek autumn/winter campaign. In a lookbook featuring WhyNot model Ryan Taylor, each piece displayed appears both intelligently designed and beautifully constructed.
Working within a modern art and architectural-inspired palette of black, maroon and charcoal, this collection boasts versatility and the use of quality fabrics. An avoidance of bold colour enables any item to combine well with the others, giving the entire range a mix-and-match appeal. Slim cuts, narrow fits and linear detailing aid in producing the collection’s polished aesthetic and subsequent refined silhouette.
Slim lapels, short jackets and quilted outerwear add a contemporary edge to this otherwise classically designed range of clothing. Layering is also utilised to full effect within the accompanying lookbook, allowing textures to take centre stage and the quality knitwear to become a central focus.
Standout pieces include the polo neck knitwear and range of fitted jackets. However, FashionBeans’ favourite comes in the form of the leather trench with shearling collar. Set to make a style statement whenever it is worn, it is a piece that encapsulates the entire collection’s approach to style and fabric choice.
With a widely accessible palette and versatile styling at the heart of the range, it could be said that Lab has hit the nail on the head when it comes to its AW13 offering.
