“I’m looking for summer all year round and suddenly here it is …” on the notes of the famous song Azzurro, which this year celebrates 50 years, the brand name Harmont & Blaine takes inspiration for the spring/summer 2019 collection. of departure is just that of the Italian summer, a dip in the past, but has nothing nostalgic, indeed. Needless to say, blue is the leitmotif of the collection that becomes outfit or detail, print or stitching. Vichy, colorful madras and tropical flower prints are the recurring patterns for a collection that includes among its key pieces unlined suède jackets, polo shirt with macro logo, shirt jacket.
The shirt is contaminated by the polo, resuming its typical buttoning and yarn-dyed fabrics, while the favorite pattern is the vichy, micronized in the dyed thread by trousers and played in linings and details, as well as in the roundneck pullover made in knitting stitches.
The mood is super summer and plays with strong color contrasts, green oleander and yellow mango, cherry red and azure. An exotic and distant desire for summer echoes in the bloomed patterns of shirts and sweater/t-shirts, in light cotton linen.
The SS 2019 collection is also the setting for the “Heritage Collection” project that celebrates the shirt 8 fabrics – iconic garment launched by the brand in 2006 – and its history, through 8 different shirts, one for each year from its presentation to the present day.
