Pal Zi­leri AW 2015-16 Col­lec­tion

Virtuozity - - BOUTIQUE -

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.
