The sophisticated outdoor lifestyle portrayed by Karen Blixen in “Out of Africa” inspired Margherita Cardelli and Gerardo Cavaliere’s second collection for their Giuliva Heritage Collection brand. Classic safari jackets, handcrafted in Naples, were shown in exclusive fabrics, including a lightweight, fluid Solaro linen in chic hues such as mint and tobacco. A Twenties-inspired waisted hunting jacket, featuring a sculpted silhouette, was crafted from vintage linens showing mannish checked and striped patterns, while a versatile coat, which can be also worn as a dress, was lined with a polka dot shirting fabric. Another double-breasted style, available in hopsack and in herringbone linen, featured a shawl-like lapel. Even though outerwear continues to be at the core of the label, Giuliva Heritage Collection also introduced safari dresses, which looked as comfortable and functional as they were elegant. With its quality constructions, refined color palette and fine details, inspired by men’s Neapolitan tailoring, Giuliva Heritage Collection is a brand to watch for those who want to stay chic without indulging in seasonal trends.
