Collections — Man / Accessories

Fall / Winter — 2006

Press Release

“I’m convinced that in today’s world we must use style as a means of self-expression, a tool through which we tell who we are and how we live.

This belief of mine is precisely the key to reading my men’s collection for the next fall/winter season. A collection winding between established rules of elegance and real-life experiences and emotions, between standard custom and individual interpretation, between clear signs of rigor and assertions of eccentricity. Referring to longtime tradition and spirit of disobedience all in one.

In my own way I sought to redefine classic formulas by imbuing the clothes with a true sense of originality, feel for the times, placing the accent on superlative materials and constructions, on quiet colors and nuances that allow room for gorgeous textures and exquisite effects.

Always composing a harmony rich in counterpoint, I designed a sensible, well-balanced collection for a man free to determine who he is and how he lives. A man totally intent on being his own person with self-assurance and awareness. Above all, a man who can easily say: “I may never be somebody but no one will ever be quite like me…”
