Preview Canali Spring/Summer 2016
The first few early sights of Canali’s Spring/Summer 2016 collection—as hinted in the Italian brand’s new mood video above—are clear signs of the house’s continued dedication to create not only pieces of clothing, but also a works of art. Extracting the magical beauty of a kaleidoscope as a source of inspiration, Canali’s creative consultant, Andrea Pompilio, seeks to render the ultimate Canali man, “suspended in the timeless atmosphere of an everlasting Mediterranean Summer.” The chromatic collage transforms that which enchanted Pompilio’s mind, with the new collection working to mold a spectrum of colors that each progress into another kind—blues transform from sky to aquamarine, mix with warm earth tones of ochre, caramel, and burgundy, and are illuminated by flashes of deep sea greens. These transformative hues will then be imprinted onto fabrics that are equally nimble and destructured, as Pompilio once again refuses to conform to traditions. Like a sudden summer storm, the new season of Canali is all about the changing ethereal. Get ready.
