Creative director Brendan Mullane traveled to Los Angeles for this color-drenched collection that blended Fifties Hollywood style with streamlined Italian tailoring. Inspired by Brioni’s early American movie star customers — such as Cary Grant and Henry Fonda — Mullane whipped up polo-necked sweaters with stripes and checks, striped V-neck cardigans and printed boxy silk shirts. He even tossed in a baby blue and gray suede baseball jacket with a big letter “B” on the front. Sleek Italian tailoring came to the fore with a micro-check, three-button suit, a teal Prince of Wales check one and a checked car coat with a crinkly texture. Mullane also collaborated with the Los Angeles-based photographer James Welling, taking his complex and colorful flower photographs and printing them onto looks ranging from classic Prince of Wales suits and Bermuda shorts to zip-front silk jackets and boxy shirts.
