Lucio Vanotti Fall Winter 2017/18 – by Sophie Joy Wright

Dear Diane and Shaded Viewers,

Lucio Vanotti presented his Fall Winter 2017/18 collection last week, and continued his allegiance to soft tailoring. The opening loungewear in royal reds was the perfect rejection of any sombreness one might feel in the world. Whilst the full tracksuit moments felt a little insincere following this, when Vanotti mixed these into a version of a three-piece suit, it transformed into something much more intriguing. The lightness of the tartan also felt very fresh; as always, the textiles were beautiful. The ease with which this designer uses virgin wool is something to behold, and indeed including the end of the fabric rolls as a sort of dedication to the textile and to his craft was a nice touch.

Happy Monday,


Sophie Joy Wright
