The MP Massimo Piombo 2015 Spring/Summer menswear collection is an exquisite combination of sophistication and originality. While Piombo’s designs lean towards the traditional, this season’s collection is anything but stodgy. Piombo’s designs are all about fabrics, colors and pairings, not to mention, unexpected details. The combination of all of this results in an ultra-modern “today” look. It is easily understood that Piombo loves his fabrics. Fabrics from several different corners of Europe can be seen in this season’s collection, including French silk, cotton jersey from Switzerland, Twill from Holland, and high quality wool, cashmere, and linen. Piombo focuses on using deep, beautiful colors for his collection. Navy and blue shades, white, bright fuchsia and pops of yellow seem to be the popular color schemes. Printed silk scarves, pocket squares and polka-dot ties give both energy and an elegant feel to many of the looks. The collection is meant to portray modern sophistication. Both comfortable and flattering, Piombo’s collection features tailored suits, tuxedos, long coats and sports jackets. Some of our favorites consist of the astonishing shawl-collar jacket, silk robes in retro prints, and cotton pajamas. Piombo really achieved the fine menswear look with his classic, yet comfortable designs.
