BEAUTY: Clothing--Pal Zileri

Pal Zileri's new creative director Rocco Iannone (this is only his second outing), showed a glorious, easy-to-wear, yet sumptuous SS '19 collection at Milano Moda Uomo that proves that today's streetwear style is tomorrow's discount rack. I'm so tired of the athleisure/streetwear/sportswear obsession and it must stop. Truly, because just look at this lovely, loosely tailored collection that feels as if it could be dressed up or worn as shown in a sort of, almost--dare I say it--Romantic sense, like one is lounging in a Pre-Raphaelite painting. Now, this is what one wears for spring.

The show itself sounds wonderfully relaxing and refreshing as well. Vogue's Nick Remsen said that Iannone "staged a tranquil outdoor Spring show in the annex of the Museo Diocesano on Corso di Porta Ticinese. A choir, seated centered on a gold-foil platform, enriched the recorded soundtrack. The models walked languidly. The sun shone and the Milanese swallows skittered overhead." What a perfect description of the kind of place one would wish to wear these clothes...like sipping a Campari and soda on a loggia overlooking a Tuscan valley as the sun sets... the draped lightweight sweaters, the brocade and jacquard jackets, the floating striped trousers (I adore a striped trouser), the gorgeous fringed sandals, the understated yet beautiful insect pins on lapels, and oh, may I please draw your attention to the STUNNING corded belt with long tassels (Looks 8 and 18). I simply have to have that belt...
