The English countryside, with its many fascinating shades, is the stage for Fabio Gavazzi men’s and women’s collections, that for FW 2020-21 show a typically British taste.
Tartan mink, Prince of Wales check, rib-knit: timeless country-style features that have always represented traditional English elegance, bon ton but fierce. Double-faced cashmere and angora dominate with their tactile weaves: checked, pinstriped, and mélange fabrics are combined with the soft texture of precious chinchilla or sable collars.
Balanced proportions, reduced fit, and sharp volumes alternate with creations that make a strong visual impact, real statement coats with surprising and innovative lines. Trench coats, three-quarter length jackets and parkas are unstructured and showcased with contained volumes and sculptural pleats.
Following the vintage trend, some iconic ‘80s styles make a comeback: mahogany or natural black mink coats made by the letting-out technique and given a modern twist.
But there are also casual and functional pieces like bomber jackets, puffers and parkas, designed for both men and women, in perfect keeping with the unisex trend. Multilayer, convertible and reversible, they are high-performance and super luxury. Crafted from nylon or wool and cashmere blend, they are lined with tartan-print mink, sable or chinchilla.
Different genres connected by an almost enchanted color palette: natural shades predominate both in the solid and printed versions. The hues are neutral, dusty; they range from white to ecru, camel, and the soft green tones inspired by England’s hills.
Vibrant red-orange and royal blue really stand out, breaking this rigorous paleness.
This is Fabio Gavazzi’s sophisticated winter. A collection designed to be admired, worn, shown and cherished.
