Gagliardi | Autumn/Winter 2013 Menswear Collection | Sartorial Elegance

The Mediterranean man’s style infused with Savile Row finesse and the Italian Sartorial elegance, that’s Gagliardi for you, Malta’s very own international menswear brand
Gagliardi’s history starts in Malta in 1964. Since then the brand has come a long way, establishing itself as one of the leading and most sought after menswear brands in Malta and it is slowly leading its way into the European market, having shop in stores in major department stores in Europe.

For their latest collection, Autumn/Winter 2013, Gagliardi, chose to inspire themselves by the Italian ski resort Cortina. Their man, is a man who chooses his clothes well, makes sure he looks good every day, whether he is going to work, a casual evening out, or to watch sports with the boys. I see Gagliardi attracting the young ostentatious man, like the movie character “Alfie” played by Michael Caine and Jude Law, and the elegant career oriented gentleman, which reminds me of Humphrey Bogart in “Sabrina” wearing suits and bow ties as part of his daily attire, and luxurious velvet dinner jackets in the evening. It’s a classic timeless collection, which finds its roots in the tailoring masters of Savile Row and Italy.

This time round, the brand chose to keep some key pieces from previous collections, like the Gagliardi quilted jacket in Alcantra leather, whilst introducing new ones, which include the wax coated cotton washed jacket and the interesting introduction to cable knitwear, whilst making sure that comfort and style are well intact.
Its a collection which includes details such as elbow patches, patch pockets, and the new  colours of Bordeaux, purple, winter white, warm mustard, rusty orange, forest green, smoky grey and icy blue.

Denimjackets, and wool jackets, washed cord, polo shirts, checked shirts and knitwear. They introduced a combination of cotton and cashmere and a range of shirts for the casual man to the business man, in different colours, prints and patterns. Having also the “Non-Iron” shirt, aiming to attract the urban, busy and metropolitan man.

Tailored business suits have now become one of their carry on classic pieces, and this season lovely addition was the three-piece suit which styled with a tie-pin shirt collar, a bow-tie and a double cuff shirt, and my favourite printed velvet, paisley and silk party jackets will get you ready for any kind of black tie event.

Lastly, their accessories range includes beautiful printed pocket squares in silk and wool, classic, fashion and bow ties and signature Gagliardi cufflinks. The footwear is the right number of shoes which are essential in every man's wardrobe; black and brown Derbies, brogues, loafers and other models which come in a range of leather and even coloured suede.

They sent me 2 pocket squares, as a gift and we are coming up with an outfit post together, an intriguing fusion of men’s accessories for a very feminine fashion blogger.
Gagliardi is a menswear brand to watch, the prices are very affordable and the quality is very good. This Mediterranean brand with sartorial references to Britain and Italy is managing to build customers all over world, cultivating menswear elegance and style for every man. With an online shop, which ships worldwide, the brand is growing fast, and taking the brand everywhere.

Vogue's Fashion Night Out Dubai | By Emaar with Vogue Italia | Dubai Mall

Dubai | 10th October 2013
Vogue's Fashion Night out is in Dubai right now, the hub for the rich and famous, of the UAE wealth and where the glitz is bigger than the glamour.
I'm getting live feed from my best friend and fashion blogger Jannat from JMode. She just met Roberto Cavalli, and just walked by Naomi Campbell. Franca Sozzani is just a few metres away wearing a Stella Jean dress. That's my girl!

The event is organised by Vogue Italia and Emaar at The Dubai Mall, having over 200 designers and retailers participating. The night will start with a grand gala, and will have all the rest of the events at the mall including a fashion show. It's a celebration of fashion, and a great event for mingling and having fun with the fashion crowd and with all the designers participating in the event. It's different from Manchester, because all the major designers are there, the creme de la creme of fashion just flew to Dubai like Riccardo Tisci, Donatella Versace and Dan & Dean from DSquared. 


At the Atrium near Bloomingdales, a taste of fashion couture will fill up the space with an exhibition from Dolce & Gabbana, Elie Saab, Jean Paul Gaultier, Versace, Armani, and more.

Lino Ieluzzi | Menswear Style Icon with a true Italian Tailored Charm and Fashion

Lino Ieluzzi, the epitome of Italian menswear style and tailored suits, he is a style menswear icon, and a true gentleman.
He has been photographed firstly by Scott Schuman from the Sartorialist, and that’s where the world came to know of him, obviously in the menswear industry he was already famous .

He is the boutique owner of Al Bazar in Milan, a menswear store, which evolved from a jeans and t-shirt shop to a the destination for aristocrats and men seeking the perfect coat or suit.
You can see him wearing the most perfect tailored suits, always double breasted, the chain hanging from his trousers, the made to measure shoes and of course smoking a cigarette.
I had the chance of snapping him during Pitti Uomo three times, 82, 83, 84 and even spoke to him. He is very charming and one of the biggest gentlemen I have ever met. He also invited me for a chat and a coffee once I return to Milan, and I will definitely take him up on his offer.
