Gagliardi embodies the timeless appeal of Savile Row but adds a distinctive Mediterranean flair and a penchant for rich colour. The label combines the quirks of modern fashion – on trend cuts, seasonal shades and varied textures – with a no-nonsense, old-fashioned approach when it comes to quality and craftsmanship and the use of luxurious fabrics.
The result is a label that is the epitome of the FashionBeans ethos: ‘Timeless Style For The Modern Gent’.
Today we have the pleasure of taking an exclusive first look at Gagliardi’s new SS14 collection…
Gagliardi Spring/Summer 2014
A label born and bred in the Mediterranean, Gagliardi know a thing or two about dressing for warm-weather climes. This season’s spring/summer 2014 range has been inspired by the fashionable Italian coastal resort of Amalfi, which is renowned for its production of Limoncello, superb sea food and spectacular coastline.
While remaining true to traditional tailoring techniques, pieces are given a modern twist and brightened up with flair and colour, prints and pinstripes, plus the odd polka dot.
The palette embraces the typically nautical shades of navy and white, with dashes of yellow, sand, pink, burnt orange, sky blue and stone helping bring outfits to life while channelling that highly desirable Riviera aesthetic:
Fabrics are a finely balanced mix of sturdy and soft, with blazers featuring everything from bengaline and hopsack to baby herringbone. Lined exquisitely with coordinating colours and silks, the jackets shield shirts well, while their contrast under-collar complements whatever is worn underneath.
Seersucker stripes, on trend gingham/windowpane checks and de-constructed denim versions are designed to get you noticed. For classicists there are also exquisite wool blazers, along with seasonally-appropriate lightweight linens – it’s up to you to decide whether yours should come fully lined, un-lined or half-lined:
Shirting & Polos
New details introduced in this year’s shirting range include the granddad collar and horizontal stripe, while subtle circular jacquards, gingham checks and chambray will help add character and texture to any warm-weather wardrobe.
Smart-casual dressers should particularly enjoy the colour variety introduced within the line of polo shirts for SS14. Lightweight and easy to wash and wear – day in, day out – they make the ideal alternative to the shirts on offer:
Trousers & Shorts
Trousers and shorts emphasise nautical influences with dashing white base basket weaves, white piping, raised rib shorts and regatta stripes.
Combining fashion and function, non-slip inner waistbands have been added, coming in materials and colours that echo and complement key fabric designs from the collection.
Lightweight and easy to travel with, all the trousers and shorts on offer can be combined as separates with the jackets in the range to produce sharp summer looks on a daily basis, whether at home or abroad:
