—01. Designed and produced in Italy.
Esemplare is only into their third collection and already have shown us an impressive range of garments. This was the first time I've been able to have a good look at their products, and I was pretty impressed on our first day at Pitti. The Italian brand is designed by a former CP Company designer, so there is some similarities in the technical treatment of fabrics, and the classic sportswear aesthetic. There was a great palette of navy blues, greens and tans in the SS12 collection, highlighted by a number of nice lightweight jackets, and a handful of knitwear pieces. So far the collection has only been available in Italy, where it is made, but it should soon be available at a handful of retailers in the UK.
