Eidos pushed the sportswear envelope for fall. “The vibe is more casual and slouchy,” said designer Antonio Ciongoli during the brand’s presentation in SoHo.

In his ongoing search for effortless elegance, Ciongoli drew from mid-Thirties men’s wear silhouettes for many of his pieces. Clear examples included high-waisted pleated pants with a built-in military belt and a belted trench with no buttons.

Other military elements made an appearance in the lineup of the brand, a division of Isaia, in World War II Japanese paratrooper pants and a vintage French military pullover paired with drawstring pants.

The collection was mostly consistent but a flannel pin-stripe suit seemed a bit out of place. It also would have benefited from a wider exploration of the theme and a deeper variety within the classifications.
