Seasonless geometric patterns on wool. The charm of the classic mountain menswear, lasts throughout the years. The wool or cashmere pullover, hand-woven like the old crochet sweaters made by grannies, gives always a sense of….security. It warms. Literally and metaphorically. Seasons pass by, fashion changes, yesterday the long cardigan (used as a coat) was in, today we opt for contrasting geometric patterns, black and red, black and indigo. The jacquard pattern northern-inspired belongs to a male aesthetic that reminds the atmospheres of Aspen and Cortina, to isolated lodges, to wooden cottages. A concrete ideal, achievable for the main part of us in less exclusive locations, loved from generation to generation that fascinates even fashionistas and very young people. After all, what’s more fashionable than a timeless trend? In this picture of Giovanni Squatriti the model wears a Moncler sweater.
