Pal Zileri 2011 Spring Collection

CAPRI: THE NAME ITSELF EVOKES AN ETERNAL IMAGERY OF GLAMOUR THAT TRAVELS BACK IN TIME TO THE LEGENDARY 1960S THAT PROCLAIMED IT THE MUST-VISIT DESTINATION OF THE INTERNATIONAL JET SET. SINCE THEN THIS SMALL ISLAND HAS BEEN CHARMING THE WORLD WITH ITS ROMANTIC ATMOSPHERE, WITH THE HISTORY OF ITS PEOPLE, WITH THE UNIQUE STYLE OF ITS ARCHITECTURE AND WITH THE VITAL BEAUTY OF ITS NATURE. AND THE COLOURS AND PASSION OF CAPRI’S LANDSCAPE CAN BE FOUND IN THE PAL ZILERI SS 2011 COLLECTION. BLUES INSPIRED BY THE DISTINCTIVE SHADES OF THE SEA ARE MIXED WITH THE RED OF THE BACCARA ROSE, WITH THE BRILLIANT GREEN OF THE VEGETATION AND WITH THE EVER-PRESENT WHITE OF THE HOUSES LIT UP BY THE ISLAND’S UNIQUE SUNLIGHT. IN THE MORE CLASSIC THEMES, BLUE IS MIXED WITH ANTIQUE PINK IN AN ELEGANT WEAVE, WHILE THE ELEGANCE OF PEARL GREY IS ENHANCED BY SAGE GREEN OR WISTERIA. FINALLY, CHOCOLATE BROWN IS BLENDED WITH COBALT BLUE AND LIGHT BEIGE.

LIGHTNESS AND TRADITION INTERACT IN DECONSTRUCTED SUITS WITH ULTRA-LIGHT CANVAS AND WIDE LAPELS THAT EVOKE HAND-TAILORED “NEAPOLITAN” STYLE. THE SAME BALANCE ALSO INSPIRES THE FABRICS, WHICH PROPOSE WIDE PINSTRIPES OR TONE-ON-TONE OVERCHECKS, ALSO WITH WOVEN EFFECTS, TO REACH NEW FINENESSES IN 150′S STRETCH IN EXCLUSIVELY PRODUCED FABRICS. IMPECCABLE COMFORT FOR THE CASUAL THEME. THE OFFER RANGES FROM KNIT EFFECT NATTE LINEN TO LUXURIOUS SOFT-TOUCH WOOL/LINEN OR STONEWASHED COTTON SEERSUCKERS. EVENING WEAR JACKETS ARE DOUBLE-BREASTED WITH REGULAR OR PEAK LAPELS. THE DETAILING OF THE TROUSERS MAKE AN ELEGANT DIFFERENCE: REVAMPED BY A PRINCE OF WALES OR CONTRASTING OXFORD TURN-UP, OR TREATED WITH A STONEWASHED EFFECT THAT PERSONALIZES THE DENIM WITH A NUANCE INSPIRED BY THE SALT OF CAPRI’S SEA. THE KNITS, IN LINE WITH THE SPIRIT OF THE COLLECTION, PROPOSE GARMENT-DYED STRIPES, WHILE THE SHIRTS CHOOSE PAISLEY PRINTS AND CONTRASTING DETAILS, CREATING LOOKS PERFECT FOR DRINKING COCKTAILS OVERLOOKING THE SEA. THE LEADING ROLE IS PLAYED BY “THE LIGHT”, WHICH MARKS A STRONG RETURN TO COLOURS, EMPHASIZED BY CONTRASTING COMBINATIONS OF FABRICS LIKE WOOL, LINEN OR SILK.
