Sandro Homme presents his new collection FW18
For the Fall-Winter 2018 season, Sandro Homme presents a collection that combines sophisticated formalism with the minimalism of casual style. The French firm reinterprets the essential pieces of the male wardrobe.
The homage to the 70s is undeniable. The colors camel, mustard, brown, anthracite and black make up this palette of autumnal tones that seem straight out of Polaroid photographs from childhood. Corduroy, the heart of this collection, counteracts with pieces of wool, cashmere and leather. The signature refers to the silhouette of Benjamin Braddock's student in The Graduate, who imagines him dressed in a brown velvet suit. Striped sweaters and cardigans with an inverted jersey remind one of carefree youth. The oversized cotton raincoat juxtaposes the ankle-cut trousers. Sandro Homme reinterprets the iconic thick wool coat with corduroy stitch of the 70s. Leather loafers and bowler hats complete the look by adding an elegant nuance. In contrast to all these more formal and elegant pieces inspired by the wardrobe of the bourgeoisie, the firm decentralized the collection with a whole set of more casual pieces. From a hoodie, a windbreaker, a "trucker" style jersey to an overshirt represent the wishes of this collection. The technicality of the bandolier is opposed to the traditional wool coat. The Scottish sheep wool print of the jackets and shirts reminds the more urban universe marked by popular cultures. Finally and directly from a fold of the south of France, it also presents a thick jersey that brightens the collection thanks to its raw tone. The French firm plays with the codes of elegance mixing with the ironic spontaneity of youth.
