L.B.M.1911 F/W16-17 at Pitti 89: perfect balance between Sportswear and Tailoring
The L.B.M.1911 brand, renowned for excellent tailoring throughout the world, confirms its dedication to research and innovation with its styles for the Fall/Winter 2016-17 season.
As a winter season first, L.B.M.1911 presents a garment dyed suit made with specially developed fabrics which have undergone more delicate treatment that lightens the old/vintage/worn effect typical of these finishes.
As usual, the fabrics are specially made for the line, in collaboration with prestigious Italian partners: silk finish weaves, fustian effect brushed gabardine, flannels, knit effect fabrics, including open weave, cashmere, baby alpaca and camel, designed for comfort, warmth and softness. In particular, the more refined yarns feature a slub cotton/wool fabric with contrast malfilé effects.
Our range of bouclés has been reviewed and re-interpreted adopting a new concept of mottling, evident in the exclusive mélange wool with bouclé checks used for jackets and vests, which acquire a light, sober mottled effect.
The fabrics come in a host of patterns: Prince of Wales, bird’s eye, checks, tartan, jersey and jacquard effects, presented in shades of forest green, blue, orange and camel with black pattern.
The vest, always an indispensable item in a man’s wardrobe, has a new refined double-breasted model, with jacket lapels.
A selection of irresistible accessories complete the look: pocket squares, scarves, bags and small leather items, also brightly coloured, which give the collection an even stronger identity; shirts and knitwear are presented exclusively for our boutique in Via della Spiga 30, Milan
Last but not least, perfectly balancing sportswear and bespoke tailoring, L.B.M.1911 stylists have developed a versatile range of outerwear and technical jackets: field jackets, hooded parkas, quilted jackets, padded shirts, trench coats and garment dyed jackets with neck warmers. Made in water-resistant fabrics with wool or flannel inserts, they all feature details that are both refined and functional, making garments ideal for any kind of weather and for urban or leisure wear without foregoing comfort and elegance.
