Bardazzi Jersey received the 303 Tuscans Ethical Fashion award in Paris

The company was set up by Alberto Bardazzi in 1983 : its first name was Alberto Bardazzi Maglia and its target group the small “pronto-moda” (ready-to-wear fashion) of Prato . The idea of producing knitted fabrics placed the company in a niche market segment, where Alberto was able to express his talent. The products made in those years are milestones in the history of fabrics and it is no coincidence that they are exhibited at the Prato Textile Museum. They had a great impact on fashion and this led Alberto to change from being a sole proprietor to a limited liability company. In the following years he moved the headquarters twice in order to find a larger space while at the same time the turnover and the number of employees were increasing. In 2001 the financial newspaper “il Sole 24 ore” listed the Alberto Bardazzi S.r.L. as one of the best 500 companies in Italy and this was the most exciting period for Alberto’s professional career. In 2003 while doing new ambitious projects, Alberto died prematurely of a disease that did not take away his desire to work and to impress. It seemed the end, but it was a new starting point because the Bardazzi family was strong enough to draw motivation and stimuli to carry on with the company. Today it is run by a sound and experienced group of people and it is proud of having sales relationships all over the world.

Raf Simons and the Shift of the Style Pendulum at Paris Men's Fashion Week

Ever rebellious – Raf Simons waged a full-fledged war against the current cloud of street-wear styles hovering over the fashion world. In the time where some of the biggest names in luxury fashion are ditching luxury for street and sportswear, none more evident than Louis Vuitton's selection of Virgil Abloh as artistic director earlier this year, Raf vowed to focus on traditional menswear garments, even for new generation.

The Unforgettable Dior Homme Show at Paris Men's Fashion Week

Balmain's Homme Vision of Rock Glam '19 at Paris Men's Fashion Week

The postponement of the Balmain Homme show according to schedule was well worth the wait. Olivier Rousteing delivered yet another collection based on rock influence, but rotating the looks around variants of glam from past eras, creating this blend of rock glamour through the decades but with a modern interpretation. So yes it was a relief to see no big hair, bold makeup and excessive piercings and tattoos.

Alexander McQueen's Tailored Suits and Dramatic Looks at Paris Men's Fashion Week

The Alexander McQueen show for Spring/Summer 2019 was one of the best in terms of originality and style while still staying true to the brand’s design aesthetic, not forgetting the subtle inclusion of the unexpected, which is always a treat for the eyes. A very strikingly cool combination of razor sharp classic silhouettes vs a totally edgy biker-esque attitude made for interesting bedfellows to start with. The collection had a grunge glam kind of essence that moved between each ensemble with an energy that just had everyone’s attention.

Innovative. Minimalist. Avant Garde. Hed Mayner at Paris Men's Fashion Week

Nothing could be as simple, innovative and with an impactful essence of Avant Garde than Hed Mayner at Paris Men’s Fashion Week for Spring/Summer 2019. A very intense subdued palette set the tone for the dramatic cuts, silhouettes, drapery and more, as the audience watched in amazement. The only visible colour was candy pink and powder blue in various tones and the only print was the pinstripes that were used to the minimum.

Shorts, Suits and Style Inspiration at the Louis Vuitton Show - Paris Men’s Fashion Week

Perhaps one of the highly anticipated shows by far at Paris Men’s Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2019 was the Louis Vuitton show which showcased the work of Louis Vuitton debut designer Virgil Abloh. While the collection as expected was inspired, cohesive and very dissimilar to what Louis Vuitton customers are used to, it did wow the audience for the most part leaving a bitter sweet sentiment on many present. Given the shift of style aesthetic this scribe found an interesting cross-road between classic and artsy which added a new flavour to fashion from the brand.

Rick Owens and The Balancing Act between Drama and Deconstruction at Paris Men's Fashion Week

The mere mention of Rick Owens and the first thing that comes to mind is breaking the rules. Hence the show that had everything from drama, deconstructed silhouettes, exaggerated elements, architectural shapes, all moved in unison with the aesthetics of the man himself. The styling and attitude of the models, the raw grunge feels and minimalist approach made this collection one of those that moved into a league of its own.

On a palette of fun, youthful colours, dominated by shades of blue, a dash of yellow, white, black and orange, Off-White designer Virgil Abloh showed a multi-dimensional look at the many ways to wear denim, adding visual interest with distressed denim, textures, knits, fleece and parachute that gels well with the quirky elements of animation, oversized silhouettes, camouflage and tie ‘n’ dye all to show-off his cool range of footwear that is a jogger and lace-up that have a chunky, army-esque appeal that is sure to liven up spring and summer of 2019.

Cmmn Swdn Officially Opens Paris Men's Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2019

Designers Saif Bakir and Emma Hedlund of Cmmn Swdn made opening night to Paris Men's Fashion Week every bit as memorable as the impact, energy and social awareness the collection had on the audience. Against a background of what looked like the landfills or somewhere in between, where many garments end up as waste and staying true to the hybrid element the brand is known for, the pieces shown couldn't have been any more hybrid than it was. An interesting mix of youthfulness and subculture, a mix of old-world aesthetics and contemporary, tipping the future of fashion vibes that were both edgy and elegantly sleek.

The Sales Director of Men's Fashion Group Dean Manev and Martina Martini (Art Director) made a presentation about Made To Measure and Made To Order services during the International TOCICO conference in Berlin, Germany on 19 July.

Types of buttons for clothing

Buttons are almost as ancient as clothing. Information exists that buttons from the Bronze Age are found in India during excavations and in Turkey buttons are found dating back to 10,000 years B.C. Their history is more than rich. During the millennia they revived for use at times and at times were forgotten. They were characteristic of the clothes of the rich and noble circles and inaccessible to ordinary people. Any kinds of materials were used, from wood and stone to precious metals and diamonds. In 18 – 19 century their decorative value reached unexpected heights, and after the World War II showed up their utility function – then they were used completely as intended – for fastening.
