S/S 2018 Men's Collection Book
Kiton is a byword for timeless elegance, an iconic fashion house renowned for its style where excellently tailored clothing is combined with and enhances an innate good taste and sense of beauty. While remaining faithful to the high standards intrinsic to its natural inclination towards bespoke tailoring, the idea for Kiton’s Spring/Summer 2018 menswear collection stems from the intention to provide solutions that are increasingly geared to the needs and desires of its customers: the Kiton customer is the protagonist of a dynamic scenario, constantly travelling, and rediscovering the timeless appeal of classic clothing. The new collection is the result of careful research that reinterprets the concept of timeless elegance, enriching it with new stylish details and applying it to all product categories: tailoring, sportswear and accessories.
The suit once again confirms its status as the season’s must-have item, the quintessential garment in a man’s wardrobe.
Brand new additions include summer vicuna and garments made from summer natural stretch fabric. Kiton introduces the first superlight fabric made from the noblest fibre in the world: vicuna.
Summer Vicuna is made in two different structures: the first is made in an ultralight twill while the second is made in a herringbone pattern to create the typical effect of a Solaro fabric. Both versions come in new colours such as pastel red.
The uniqueness of this creation is demonstrated by its extremely restricted availability. The customers who are the greatest enthusiasts of this variety of fabric had already optioned it when research was in its earliest stages.
The S/S 2018 collection features new innovations in the research for natural stretch fabrics with natural stretch cashmere and 14 micron wool, which represent the distinctive features of the collection. The manufacturing process includes special finishes that add elasticity to the fabric through the inclusion of elastane combined with woven yarn which, by being absorbed during washing, ensures that the fabric has natural stretch.
Blue is the main colour and appears in all its different shades, a chromatic frame ideally suited to containing micro-patterns and imperceptible designs.
The chic and elegant Kiton jacket once again confirms its status as the stand-out garment in the wardrobe of the contemporary gentleman. Stylistic research is crucial with the introduction of new structures that combine the profundity of the designs with the trademark lightness in the construction and aesthetic appearance of the garment. As a result of this objective, the jackets have a slimmer drop and their length has been reduced from 76 cm to 74 cm.
For this season, Kiton has given a new twist to one of the fashion house’s historic models: the G jacket. This type of jacket has extraordinary versatility obtained by using a special manufacturing procedure that gives the upper part of the garment a formal appearance while the lower part looks more casual and fluid.
