Scia­mat strives to re-con­fer mer­ited dig­nity on the most an­cient and fas­ci­nat­ing of tex­tile fibers, of­ten brushed aside by trends and syn­thetic fibers: for Scia­mat, linen re­mains a clas­sic of Sum­mer cloth­ing in all its pos­si­ble hues and suit­able for all oc­ca­sions, whether dur­ing the day or the evening. Scia­mat pro­poses it in its tuxedo with linen lapels that as­sumes an in­for­mal chic for sum­mer cer­e­monies on the beach and in a dou­ble-breasted suit with a slightly retro cut. The English linen ex­alts the form of the lapels, the heft of the arm holes and the sin­u­os­ity of the slim fit. The beauty of this fab­ric is main­tained nat­u­rally by a light struc­ture with no in­ner lin­ing or can­vas, re­sult­ing in a jacket as light as a shirt, its struc­ture sus­tained only by the metic­u­lously hand­cut and hand-stitched tai­lor­ing im­parted by Valentino Ricci, the founder and de­signer of mai­son Scia­mat. In the cur­rent col­lec­tion, Scia­mat, as usual, re­frains from up­set­ting the co­or­di­nates of “clas­sic clothes,” although Ricci has sa­vantly up­dated the forms and pro­por­tions to make them ever more con­tem­po­rary, con­tin­u­ing to lay out what can be de­scribed as the lines that founded the story of the “clas­sic man.”
