Autumn Winter 2016/17 collection
The inspiration for the collection:
A journey that starts from the core of the earth, travels through the terrestrial crust, the rocks, the roots and the woods, to reach the sky, the stars and the planets.
It is a journey marked by cosmic explosions that generate symphonies of colour: blues, reds and greens in exclusive shades with a single colour that connects everything: stellar white.
The “tailoring pioneer” finds new creative spaces that are expressed in clothing.
He is like an astronaut who lives in the present but wears only sheer white jackets to obtaina futuristic aspect, essential for everyone who wants to explore unknown worlds.
Two main silhouettes:
The first, very lean, is dominated by large volumes, created by plaids, overcoats and capes.
The second, softer and fuller, exalts the shoulders and the waistline.
Almost all the Fabrics are exclusive both in the design and in the weave and include the very fine 100% camel hair GOBIGOLD, created by the Loro Piana mill for Caruso jackets, coats and outerwear.
The concept of the collection, “The Tailoring Pioneer”, is represented by two original designs:
− the astronaut travelling between the planets, suspended on a sky-blue jacquard and a sparkling firmament printed on the absolute black of velvet.
− Malachite, the beautiful stone of transformation and symbol of the thirst for knowledge, is used for ties, silk scarves and pyjamas. The silk scarf that evokes the entanglement of rootsand flowers in the terrestrial crust being a tribute to the earth.
It is developed as an essential category in the Caruso man’s wardrobe.
Embroidered, open-worked, with horizontal and oblique stripes, with lozenges, and in twin sets to be worn in several layers.
New this season is the “SEA ISLAND 50” fabric, the result of the tireless research by Caruso for product innovation and superior quality.
The fibre comes from Jamaica and is exceptionally long - up to 50 mm - and it is spun to obtainan inimitable hand and exceptional resistance.
Combined with manufacturing that is obsessively attentive to detail but always anchored to a fair price/quality ratio, it makes the Caruso shirt a leading piece on the market.
Caruso debuts this season with small leather goods designed as the accessory closest to the tailored pieces, with the same attention to detail and to functionality.
Two unusual models:
− The mix ‘n’ match “Essential + Wallet” in chocolate deerskin or black brushed calfskin;
− The “Hand Pocket” for travelling with a recessed handle that contains all the other pieces like a Russian matrioshka doll: a pocket for receipts, a pocket for credit cards, business cards, change and glasses, to be composed according to individual requirements, in precious crocodile and three colours.
