Tomas Maier, the brand’s creative director, hopped a time machine to Seventies California with a collection of slouchy separates that would be right at home at a seaside hippie commune — albeit a very luxurious one.
Loose, pullover tunic tops were a pillar of the collection and came in buttery suede the color of Nutella, faded gray and pale olive. Versions that came with lace-up details at the neck or hippie fringes at the bottom looked more like costumes, and conjured the wardrobes of Haight-Ashbury folk or Grateful Dead fans.
Other silhouettes were more winning — as was the color palette that featured dusty shades of red, cement, teal and taupe. There were artfully crumpled suits — single and double-breasted — and featherweight coats. More structured and slim-fitting suits looked at first glance as if they were stained with spilled coffee or tea. But Maier’s man is too poised to be dribbling his morning cuppa down the front of his outfit. On closer inspection, the marks were actually a faded flower print — fitting for a man who spends his time under a sunny sky.
