For the OI20, Alled-Martinez reappears with a collection that dominates knitting techniques and refers to the brand’s timeless icons.
The Alled Martinez man is a decadent dandi that combines the elegant decline of the thirties and the audacity of nightlife men of the late seventies and early eighties.
The atmosphere of the time is modernized with a series of suits and vests knitted with intarsia stripes; Woven felt coats, in addition to the brand’s classic icons: the woven cowboy and the woven suits and fully fitted to wear directly on the skin.
The elegant and stylized forms of the seventies are combined with transparency, iridescence, sparkle and sumptuousness. All of them are completely woven and made in Italy.
Alled-Martinez decides to explore in depth the lifestyle and costumes of his man. He chose to make the photo shoot of the collection in a Parisian flat, in the heart of Le Marais, and present it to the press in Serpent à Plume, with the boys lying on the iconic DS600 sofa from De Sede.
Woven and fully fitted vests with peak lapels that undergo haute couture treatment. The classic fully fitted jacket with peak lapels, tucked into a pair of casual viscose pants from Milan of half vicuña, which gives it a very modern touch; a vivid red shawl collar tuxedo with a satin stripe, a tribute to the late Sterling St. Jacques.
The woven cowboy creates a soft yet structured crossover jacket and a jacket also made of elastic viscose jersey. All wrapped in felt coats in black and white that allude to the characteristic outerwear of Walter Albini.
The innovative seasonal knitting techniques feature three-piece black and white viscose suits, which incorporate a silver metallic thread that generates an iridescent effect in contact with the light.
Together with a brilliant cowgirl combination, the collection highlights the fabulous act of dressing to go out.
