Double breasted jackets and suits, using subtle colours and stripes, gives men a sartorial flair. Geometric features heavily in knitwear combined with tonal black colouring.
Classic ruins and medieval streets from Taormina inspire casual tailoring, the destination for writers and artists since the 19th century. Light wool and crispy cottons seen with double-breasted mauve suits take on casual tailoring at its most sophisticated.
