A NEW NOTION OF FORMAL WEAR IN THE MOVING NUANCES OF AFRICA, ELEVENTY UOMO SS 2017

A new concept of formal wear is the leitmotif of the SS 2017 collection, where elements of sportswear intersect with the classics and are interpreted in fabrics that are only apparently traditional but actually light, bi-stretch and no-iron.   The result is the Eleventy Style expressing an elegance that is never preset for a practical, young and contemporary man.


Through this juggling of genres Eleventy revolutionises the codes of the suit, proposing the relaxed suit which has jogging-style pants with pleats and an elastic waistband and also the non-coordinated smart casual suits, where formal jackets are worn with baggy pants, even in used Japanese denim, or with jogging pants in wool in plain colours or with micro chalkstripe patterns.
This generates the new concept of jacket, always unstructured but perfectly constructed. It has a detachable hood in the three-button version in traditional fabric. It turns formal in the field jacket version made up in lightweight wool. When made in stretch jersey piqué with raw seams it can be worn like a shirt. In the vertical stripe version it can be worn with the casual air of a t-shirt. When made up in textures of a material appearance it produces plays of reflections, and finally it turns blue in the new Baracuta jacket made of superfine North African nappa leather.


In the quest for comfort and lightness, the pants in precious Japanese cottons or in selvedge stretch denim become baggy, while the jeans have a soft handle in the new denim-pashmina. Sweaters and cardigans are in embossed linen/cotton or in two-tone cotton piqué. The sweatshirts get a new look in the two/three colour versions, while garment-dyed piqué polo shirts alternate with patterned versions flaunting a used appearance.

The collection is rounded off with a range of accessories, footwear and bags made in nappa-finish calfskin with a very soft hand, or in two or three colours in canvas fabric/leather. Among the novelties is the Loro Piana wool rainproof and rain system travel kit including a face cream, a hand cream, cocoa butter and the Eleventy molecular perfume.
