The standout evening look is the gold brocade blazer in precious reptile skin worn over a T-shirt adorned with a stylised space-helmet theme accessorised with metallic gold slip-ons. The wide-lapel beaver coat screams 1960s glamour. Oneofthecollection’shighlights,asilkshirtandjacketset,featuresadramatic motif of the astrolabe, an instrument used by astronomers of the past. Slim pants and tweed blazers featuring oversize checks in natural tones, sophisticated herringbone and black and white pied-de-poule jackets and coats bring the formal element to the collection. Prints, embroideries, colours, precious skins and details are the individual and intermixable fil rouges of the line. Styles associated with beat musicians and mod culture, on the other hand, inspire more everyday looks, such as a biker jacket and a fitted blazer with a leather lapel. Hoodedmink-lined cashmere bombers prove nothing is too precious for the Billionaire man. The collection’s themes are further enforced by embroidered crests that embellish the back pockets of the jeans and appear on T-shirts. The black flocking on the blue down jacket is inspired by the brush strokes of futuristic 1960s paintings and the optical-effect sunbeam bomber has a markedly futuristic feel.
