THE ITALIAN JOB

Get schooled on the best fashion Italy has to offer – from the traditional houses to new Italian designers, hop in your getaway car in fine tailoring from Valentino and Marni, or learn a lesson on the sculptural silhouettes of Sara Battaglia and patterns of Alanui.

SUIT UP: Stay as sleek as your getaway car – Try a tailored VALENTINO classic blazer and matching VALENTINO high-waisted trouser in bright red to match your Alfa Romeo. Add a GIANVITO ROSSI Sandal for a subtle accent of nude below red. Make sure your accomplice is dressed equally as sharp in a MARNI checked suit jacket, MARNI checked tailored trousers, and GUCCI pinstripes shirt – but keep him quick on his feet in a pair of VALENTINO low-top sneakers.

ATTENTION PLEASE: Don’t be a teacher’s pet – take liberties in voluminous and sculptural silhouettes from some of our favorite new Italian designers. Go for a SARA BATTAGLIA poplin top paired with demure DELFINA DELETTREZ jewelry and a SARA BATTAGLIA pleated mini skirt. Trade your backpack for an ATTICO pouch for a subtle yet shimmery statement. For your peer, go for an oversized OFF-WHITE camel hair coat layered over an ALANUI cardigan and OAMC trousers.

CLASSROOM ETIQUETTE: For a more sophisticated look, go for a MARNI checked suit jacket over an ATTICO embellished bow dress. Add a silky touch with a set of FOR RESTLESS SLEEPERS Etere pajama pants and a pair of GIANVITO ROSSI sandals. For men, go for a FENDI FF logo t-shirt under an OFF-WHITE lake print jacket and OAMC trousers.

SUGGESTED READING: Take what you’ve learned and run with it – may we suggest a SARA BATTAGLIA cut out dress with a MARNI fur stole. For men, go for a GUCCI double-breasted logo wool coat matched with an ALANUI cardigan – a must-have amongst our new italian designers. Finish off the look with OAMC trousers and PALM ANGELS distressed plaid low-top sneakers.
