In less skilled hands, the colors, prints and fabrics that Duchamp creative director Gianni Colarossi brings together in his collections might flirt with gaudy. But thankfully, Colarossi is adept at combining lush textures and subtle patterns in sharp tailoring that looks modern and wearable.
He looked to the brand’s namesake — Marcel Duchamp — for this season’s arty vibe, which saw painterly stripes woven across a burgundy and black blazer, and a delicate floral jacquard bloom on a one-button blazer layered over a matching shirt, dip-dyed silk scarf, and neat black trousers.
Especially attractive was the navy silk moiré shawl-collar blazer that was teamed with a watery green silk shirt and narrow black pants. Another checked blazer — inspired by the late artist’s love of chess — was worn with a contrasting geometric wool scarf.
