Contrasting with the gilded and stuccoed vaulted rooms of the Neoclassical Palazzo Serbelloni in Milan, the models at the Peuterey Studio presentation stood on a modern structure of shiny blue wood cubes. To further impress on viewers that the collection combined elements of the intellectual and working worlds, tools such as construction gloves or an architect’s scale were embossed into the frame. New creative director Federico Curradi has been charged with infusing the brand with more fashion, shifting away from its image as simply functional activewear. The collection for fall certainly fit with the urban concept Curradi is aiming for. Parkas in technical wool or fustian blazers with detachable linings and shearling collars felt luxurious yet cozy and easy. Knits with geometric intarsia inspired by Euclid’s theorems were a welcome addition to the brand’s core outerwear business.
