Travelling Through Italy
From its yacht-dotted ports to its ancient city streets to its picture-perfect countryside, Italy is a country that has always known how to charm. Its style – a sophisticated sartorial summary of La Dolce Vita – has been as enduring as its monuments; an influence on tailoring the world over. No wonder, then, that Scabal’s new-season collection has taken its cues from this beautiful country to create its most summer-suitable jackets.
summer in the city
The Via Veneto Collection:
Aperitivo hour on Rome’s Via Veneto is Italy’s capital at its cosmopolitan best. Scabal’s namesake collection – eight distinctive designs – blend cotton and linen for a fabric that’s perfect for keeping cool on summer city strolls. White, navy and beige overchecks are the focus of the collection, with boucle yarns giving a textured tactile finish to add depth. Two new dramatic semi-plains give a touch of sportswear to the range.
summer on the coast
The Positano Collection:
For town so small, the postcard-pretty Positano has the sort of stylish sway a major city would be proud of. Its pastel painted houses, traditional boutiques and tranquil cafés have long attracted the jetset who moor up in its secluded harbour. This new summer jacket collection channels its poised perfection – lightweight cottons, linens and silks ensure stylish comfort in the summer heat; the classic navy, beige and herringbone white plains are constructed with a well pronounced twill for a versatile smart summer staple.
The Mosaic Collection:
More than just a tribute in name, this collection is a celebration of intricacy and elegance. A Mosaic check begins with tiny panels of unexpected colour combinations that combine to create a stand-out fabric; its detail only revealed with upon close inspection and a sophisticated feel. Constructed from Super 130s wool in various shades of summer – ocean blues, light beiges, fresh greens, sun-kissed reds – its fine twill lends it a superior finish and a sophisticated construction.
