The Spring-Summer collection 2023 by Santaniello tells an imaginary journey in which the already known itineraries become new routes to travel, without ever losing the coordinates of the classic.
Like castaways of a tradition that needs to find its bearings again, in the 3 chapters of the campaign shooting the protagonists rediscover the "well dressed" through the garments that define the evolved classic style of Santaniello.
“Salerno is a port from which to leave or to return and we are sailors who observe and listen to the sea, trying to read the horizon and understand what will come. For some time now I have felt the need for a "new formal" in the air as a return to the rule, to the route. It doesn't mean going back to the past but looking at the classic as a compass with which Santaniello can continue his exploration. Comfort, elegance, formal, informale, past, futuro, giorno, evening… are all cardinal points whose existence and importance should not be forgotten. Our journey continues and it is an exciting journey.” Antonio Santaniello, Direttore Creativo del brand.
Between the pants, true cornerstone of the brand, there are the seasonal interpretations of the models Arechi, Instinct, Clark, Palatine, Fold e 945T, sartorial cargo Load and Mirko, the inevitable joggers Barone and the new model Irno. Born as a contemporary evolution of the iconic Arechi, Irno has the same construction as the Baron, with elastic waist only on the back and without front closure strap.
Next to the jackets 2 bottoni, 3 buttons ripped two and double-breasted, the contamination with the workwear world continues, to carry forward a new way of thinking about the dress 3 pieces with waistcoat and jacket-shirt combined with trousers. L’overshirt orange blossom is now a new Santaniello classic, next to the model Anemone, with shirt collar and double patch pocket on the chest.
Among the vests the I'll fuck V-neck, 2 pockets and small patch pocket on the front plus classic regulating buckle on the back e silent with round neck and iconic work pocket on the sides. New for the season is the unprecedented interpretation of the tuxedo suit with shawl collar and lapel made in the same fabric as the jacket, without contrast in silk. The dominant feature of the new tuxedo – according to Santaniello, non smoking is a color palette.
Among the colors the shades of blue dominate, from the Pantone Santaniello to the blues, different variations of pink, gave, yellows and neutral tones, also present for the first time in the Il Viaggiatore collection.
It is a new step in the evolution path of the classic, to reconcile the traditional needs of form with more current perspectives. The dress also arrives in less rigorous contexts, in the name of comfort and versatility. Made in stretch Lycra®, the garments of the Il Viaggiatore collection are machine washable without the need for ironing. Among the seasonal patterns there are floral motifs and maxi-stripes with a nautical inspiration.
