House Of Fraser Launch Corsivo
Italian style has made its way into a new line launched by the menswear department at House of Fraser. Corsivo, which means italics, features a fresh colour palette and bold prints of navy, grey and black, offset with warmer shades.
Trousers, blazers, jackets and ties are among the offering available at the firm’s 61 stores around the UK and Ireland.
Suits, which carry an Italian map print lining, have been made using a rare stitching technique, performed on only one traditional machine.
To produce the range, fabrics have been sourced from Biella; a region in northern Italy, home to the woollen mills of Zegna and Cerruti. The spring collection also incorporates pure cotton shirts in bold stripes, along with and geo-print linen pocket squares.
Despite being pitched as a formal wear line, silk knitted ties in shades of blue and grape provide a more relaxed edge.
Prices for blazers start at £120, shirts at £79, and accessories including wallets at £25.
The department store, which is 160 years old, says the collection offers contemporary tailoring for the modern man who appreciates European elegance.
Customers can shop the Corsivo collection in House of Fraser stores and online at houseoffraser.co.uk. The company’s flagship store is located on London’s Oxford Street.
