Eidos is finally making its own way in world. The younger-skewed division of Italian luxury brand Isaia took a more fashion-forward approach to its spring collection, using India as a starting point.
But instead of using the country’s predictable bright colors and silky fabrics, creative director Antonio Ciongoli took a more-intellectual approach with his neutral palette and raw textured fabrics.
Hand-dyed indigos, linen herringbones, waterproof linens and linen/cotton blends were used throughout in belted safari jackets, open-weave sweaters and playful harem pants.
A sleek white double-breasted suit paired with a turban built a bridge between the two cultures and drove home the point that despite the journey, Eidos is still part of one of the leading Neapolitan tailored houses.
