Here’s a casual but debonair look for summer, anchored by an olive sweater made from Loro Piana’s fine-gauge Wish Wool, which feels like silk to the touch. Superfine-cotton trousers are exceptionally lightweight – as is the airy cotton voile summer scarf.
What happens when you knit a cardigan in the shape of a jacket and give it metal buttons, like a traditional blazer? You’re looking at the answer – and it’s a great way to smarten up a casual outfit without looking overdressed. Ivory is proving to be a spectacularly popular colour for freshening up a spring wardrobe of blues and browns.
The grey glen check fabric of this suit is so lightweight you can see through it, letting you keep your cool but still feel dressed on a hot summer day. Unlined and with next to nothing in terms of structure, it’s as comfortable as your softest jacket. The jacket and trousers are sold separately and look just as good worn that way.
The Milanese brand brings another evolutionary step to the idea of the jacket – a five-button hybrid cardigan jacket- shirt knitted with a mini waffle stitch. Personalize it in any direction you choose. We’ve paired it with a striped sport shirt and mustard-coloured drawstring chinos with lightly elasticated cuffs.
