Pal Zileri AW 2015-16 Collection
Pal Zileri recently unveiled its collection for the autumn/winter season, an innovative take on sartorial standards, with contemporary sensibilities, proportions and techniques.
The keywords of this year’s collection are nonchalance, elegance, synthesis, modularity and function, according to Pal Zileri. For colours, the brand has opted for autumnal shades, discreet, with forays into the unexpected. A true green enlivens blue and brick red, and subtle hues pair with greys and browns, while yellow ochre illuminates various shades of black.
The fabrics draw on inspiration from the archives of Pal Zileri’s parent company, Gruppo Forall, with each motif having been reinterpreted and restructured. Houndstooth and Prince of Wales patterns, as well as other geometric designs, are presented as prints and jacquards. Each element is presented with a discreet contemporary sensibility. Layering blends yarns of alpaca, cashmere, superfine wool, silk wool blends, mohair, and angora. And leather outerwear is structured yet soft.
In terms of the collection’s must-haves, the Parka is equally modish in sheepskin with a nappa finish or in leather and flannel, leather with a feather-filled lining, leather and fabric in sort of reversible garment—the contrast is not only a creative quirk but also fulfills two different functions.
Also accentuating this drive for contrast, biker jackets with prominent zippers are worn with tailored white shirts, while Tshirts are worn with formal wear.
