For this year’s edition of Salone del Mobile, I was delighted to be invited by Canali to explore and experience only the best of design in Milan. From meeting Rossana Orlandi to Wallpaper Arcade’s of specially commissioned objects the week was an eye-opening experience to the fascinating world of true design!
The Salone del Mobile was founded in 1961 and is the most anticipated event in the world of furniture and design. Experts in fashion, architecture and design all flock to this one big showroom to get inspired. It is a symbol of Italian heritage and innovation and how better to appear at such a show but in head to toe Canali.
Canali has been designing tailor made suits for the past 80 years, almost a century of elegance and luxury. For their SS 16 collection, blues mixed with warm earthy tones are the colors of choice. Fabrics take on new esthetics to highlight luxurious compositions as well as innovative effects, two things the brand has been perfecting since 1934. A fresh and relaxed silhouette is the goal this season and Canali presents a new vision of summertime through the choice of colors, fabrics and styles that all come together in an elegant and sophisticated tableau of looks.
