Alberto Guardiani Presentation
Alberto Guardiani AUTUMN/WINTER 2012-2013 Press Release - The Urban Dandy
The Alberto Guardiani Men’s Collection for Autumn/Winter 2012-2013 draws inspiration from British style. The choice of colours and the fluid lines play a fundamental role, helping to define a gritty and decisive line that is captivating yet in keeping with the tradition of the brand.
The collection has a compelling style, able to express the essence of manhood. The colours are dominated by black with some variations of grey and brown. For the new season, the Maison has focused on a strong, daring male who exudes elegance and sophistication regardless of the setting.
References to British style are emphasized by the details of the argyle pattern, the classic Scottish lozenges, the wing tip lace-up and brogue Oxfords.
Hand-processed leather brings handicraft to the shoes and, at the same time, they take on a lived-in look while being a truly top quality product: hammered calfskin to remove the colour, waxed suede, scratched and air-brushed leather.
Fringes, clear cuts and punctures frame the collection, which includes lace-ups with a leather sole, blake construction and army issue boots with heavy duty soles. One of the highlights is MIGLIO VERDE, with refined materials made using a special processing technique that allows notable flexibility.
The core of this collection is the new BON TON line, which combines an urban look with a classic soul, mixing “used” materials with handcrafting.
