The Autumn/Winter collection for Canali displayed elements of a rich Russian influence. Sartorially, what is observed is a parade of jackets and well-cut suits – all luxuriously complimented with accents of deep shades, silk patterns and fur. Materials used in the collection range from cashmere, silk, casentino and boucle, but with a general colour story of deeply autumnal hues. Classic brown, blue, grey, dark violet, brick and red are paired with the slightly more mineral colours of petrol blue, teal and malachite. As it is, all these translate into an image of a rugged gentleman that is a tad retro, but at the same time, trendy too. While it is suggestive of a nostalgic throwback to past fashion influences. Canali’s Autumn/Winter 2013 collection nevertheless maintains a feel of modern richness. At the height of its appeal, luxury is definitely the mainstay ingredient of this elegant collection.
