Shooting its resort look book on the grounds of the Gonzaga palace in Mantua — the Renaissance structure’s architecture and interiors had inspired some of the clothes’ patterns and jacquard prints — Mantù delivered a collection that was light in mood and heavy on tailoring. The brand’s men’s wear heritage was evident in a number of shirting and shirt-inspired options, with origami folds and innovative cuts. One chic striped shirtdress featured a dramatic tail and a wrap-waist tie, while a short-sleeved shirt with floral embroidery was cut so it was tailored slim in the front and boxy in the back. Tailored jackets were clean and sharp, with a standout pullover version as a modern alternative to a classic blazer.

 

Even with the technical design flourishes, the lineup had an airy quality. A poplin button-down with fil coupé was delicate to the touch, and a powder-blue coat dress with utilitarian pockets and pleats was similarly light — and versatile. Another sophisticated standout: a hand-pleated skirt with a raised chevron pattern and metallic shine.
