MILAN — “Uman is ready to roll,” declared Umberto Angeloni, founder of the conceptual Milanese tailored clothing label, which on Friday presented what it billed as its first full ready-to-wear collection.
The expanded Uman wardrobe, which can be ordered in a range of fabrics, spans jackets, suits, coats, pants, shirts, ties and scarves, with knitwear likely to be added in the coming seasons. Retail prices range from $150 for a tie to around $3,000 for a suit. Since its launch in 2009, Uman has based its seasonal presentations around its suit, in only blue hues, as well as three new editions to its range of so-called “social jackets,” which are inspired by men’s passions, such as sports and travel, with an accompanying book launched each season to accompany the designs.
