L.B.M. 1911 Fall/Winter 2014 – “Italian Tailoring and British Dapperness”

Italy’s L.B.M. 1911 release the lookbook for their Fall/Winter 2014 collection full of classic menswear and surprising accents. Resourcefully using their fabric archive exclusively produced in Northern Italy — from jacquards, cashmere, silk and wool to velvet — the collection “combines Italian tailor-made craftsmanship with British dapperness.”  Unlined blazers with knit jackets come in bright florals, tartans and plaids, styled with scarves and round-frame glasses. Neon shows up as the undersides of collars, stitchings and buttons that bring the otherwise too classic collection to the more youthful and contemporary realm.
