Italian aviator and aeronautical engineer Umberto Nobile, who created the first aircraft to reach the North Pole in the Twenties, served as inspiration for the Mr & Mrs Italy’s fall men’s collection.

“Having the parka as our core product, our brand is definitely influenced by a military inspiration, but this season I wanted to focus more on the figure of an explorer rather than a soldier,” said James Woldron, who is the head of the label’s design team.

A sense of adventure and functionality were injected into the collection, which included a range of the brand’s signature parkas. They included a gray camouflage style lined with shaved fox fur, as well as another number crafted from a technical performance fabric and embellished with retro military-inspired patches.

Hybrid silhouettes included a jacket combining an aviator bomber with a puffer, as well as another style mixing the shapes of a coat and a down jacket.

Urban references were introduced via graffiti-inspired decors appearing on the back of a shearling bomber jacket, while a long-hair shearling coat channeled a bold hip-hop look.
