The Salone del Mobile in 2016, as well as the recent “Before Classic design” exhibition, have reintroduced classic style, which spilled over into the 2017 fall/winter collections. Tailors of yesteryear took over the front lines, offering impeccable construction of coats, capes, yokes, and hunting jackets. Mantova’s Caruso entrusts their tailoring to the eclectic creative Sergio Colantuoni, who served up classic, four pocketed jackets. He ideated a special pattern based on an antique painting found in a quaint French museum, and applied it to shirts with lavallière collars, and coat linings. Fashion designer John Vizzone designed squared-off silhouettes that created a slim line, accentuated by full-length military coats for Rome’s Cifonelli. Originally founded by Giuseppe Cifonelli in Rome in 1880, the collection was presented in the classic space belonging to the furnishing brand Henge, on Milan’s Via della Spiga.

The Moodboarders is a glance into the design world, which, in all of its facets, captures the extraordinary even within the routine. It is a measure of the times. It is an antenna sensitive enough to pick-up on budding trends, emerging talents and neglected aesthetics. Instead of essays, we use brief tales to tune into the rhythm of our world. We travelled for a year without stopping, and seeing as the memory of this journey has not faded, we have chosen to edit a printed copy. We eliminated anything episodic, ephemeral or fading, maintaining a variety of articles that flow, without losing the element of surprise, the events caught taking place, and the creations having just bloomed.
