Luisaviaroma Style Lab: Endless Summer

Although we previewed Luisaviaroma’s fall collection, the second look I put together for our Style Lab collaboration doesn’t feel particularly like fall. It’s a nod to those early autumn Indian summer days that make you wonder whether you really should have put your summer clothing away. Like the first look, this one was all about exercising restraint, highlighting classic pieces, and accessorizing smartly.

Obviously, this look is all about the chinos. There were many pieces by Dsquared2 in the collection that caught my eye and the color of these chinos really stood out. They’re a perfect summer-fall transition piece. Add a charcoal blazer for more of an autumn look.

The right accessories can make a good simple outfit a great one. A few well-appointed bracelets keep it casual and balanced. I love details that reveal themselves only upon closer inspection. Look closely and you’ll notice some subtle macabre features on the bracelets, which help tie them together with the python-embossed Lanvin slip-on sneakers. Edgy, without being over the top, and in your face.

How about this location? It’s an old abandoned tobacco factory, Ex-Manifattura Tabbachi. Between the fascist architecture and the numerous dead bird carcasses laying around the grounds – I thought the pink flamingos were a particularly ironic touch (R.I.P. Don Featherstone) – let’s just say it was a bit creepy. Matteo, Markus and Daniel from, and the rest of the team deserve some major pats on the back for enduring this location shoot!

    The location you chose to shoot in is absolutely refreshing compared to the usual photo scheme you exhibit. The sneakers are definitely a must have for me. You look very relaxed. It is also nice to see you wear color. It looks good on you.

      Cheers, Igwedinma. We deliberately shoot in real world environments most of the time. HSS is all about real style for real guys. Our content is designed to be approachable and attainable. I want my readers to say, “Hey, I like that. I think I could do that too.” We’re not here to take catalog photos.

      Though, when we have the opportunity to branch out a little and be a more artistic and creative, that’s always fun!
