Fall Winter 2020 collection introduces a new era for Luxury French fashion house Maison SMALTO. In its French tradition, With a strong link to the Cinema, the New Wave movement and 60’s Paris were the starting point of the new collection presented at Paris fashion Week Men’s, combining master tailoring skills with a Parisian vision of the masculine wardrobe in an urban modernity.
Mixing formal with athleticism, the name SMALTO is weaved in tennis stripes on cargo trousers, while the iconic jacket is mixed with wool jogging trousers, a waistcoat slips under a pointed collar tuxedo jacket, and a patterned shirt is combined with a turtleneck pullover. A t-shirt slips under a leather riding jacket, with wedged boots suiting the Parisian pavement, the same way sneakers do.
Grey, white and black are references to a universal and timeless Paris and settles a new base to the SMALTO wardrobe, softened with touches of beige and camel, while blue is still one of SMALTO’s fundamental colours.
This season is a turning point for the Maison SMALTO, drawing attention to new talents on the French menswear scene – a new collaboration is presented with designer Louis Gabriel Nouchi highlighting their common vision on the Parisian modernity.
This collaboration sees a capsule collection of a dozen looks, revisiting the proportions of the brand’s tailoring and playing with its codes: the lapis-lazuli motifs and red carnation. The shapes and lengths of this collection with a minimalist aesthetic interacts with the innovative mind of Francesco Smalto.
