As the new season draws in, it brings with it a desire for unabashed sophistication – perfectly-cut tailoring, sharp suits, luxurious fabrics and fascinating prints. This is Autumn/Winter 2018 crafted in the Gagliardi way, with a sense of style and refinement that instantly transports you to one of the most beautiful places in the world – Milan.
It is fitting, therefore, that this collection finds itself on the stunning streets of this Italian hub – a city that seamlessly blends the very best of life, lived the Italian way. From a busy morning commute completed by a steaming shot of espresso, to the evening strolls spent taking in the glamour of this truly unique destination, every step will be walked in the style that Gagliardi has become famous for.
Milan is a metropolis that thrives on success. As Italy’s indisputable commercial centre, this is also where countless entrepreneurs choose to launch their careers. From the boardrooms of smart business blocks to the charming cafés that sit on every corner, Milan is place where dreams are made and goals are embarked upon.
But it isn’t all business and no pleasure – this is a city bedecked with a stunning architectural heritage, awe-inspiring historic sites and glamorous destinations. Over the centuries, some of Italy’s most iconic residents have made Milan their home, including artists Michelangelo and Leonardo da Vinci, composer Verdi, the inimitable tenor Enirco Caruso, and designer Giorgio Armani. They have each left their marks on the city and their creative genius is still felt today.
The only way to get to know Milan is by wandering through it, exploring the culture and delights that live on every corner. Highlights here include the colossal Cathedral of Santa Maria Nascente – known simply as ‘Il Duomo – a flamboyant Gothic church that is among the largest in the world. Then there’s the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II – a haven of luxury shops and elegant cafés designed by Giuseppe Mengoni; its manufacture marked the beginning of modern architecture in Italy and it stands as a splendid example of 19th-century industrial iron and glass construction. And, of course, no trip to this city would be complete without an evening at the opera – and the Teatro alla Scala to be exact. It is a destination that has welcomed all of the world’s great operatic composers and singers, and it remains one of the most prestigious cultural buildings anywhere in Europe.
So, it is enveloped by all of this beauty that Gagliardi’s unveils its latest collection. Designed for the gentleman who needs to move effortlessly between cities, as well as between purposes, it is a compendium that combines flair with convenience. From the newly-launched travel suit that makes the perfect global companion, to the plush jackets that add richness to any evening event, the very best of this city’s quintessence lives and breathes in every piece of Gagliardi attire. This is a collection to be lived, enjoyed, tested and savoured – a dazzling selection that promises camaraderie, success and the very essence of Milan.
