BEAUTY: Clothing--Sartorial Monk

Italian tailor, ex-model, and designer Sabàto Russo (born and raised in Foggia in the Puglia region) started his brand Sartorial Monk in 2016 after a stint as an assistant designer for Issey Miyake in Japan. Russo's interest in a Japanese aesthetic is evident in his few past collections (and the name of his label!) as well as this lovely, lyrical Spring Summer 2019 co-ed offering at Milano Moda Uomo. Wide legged trousers and flowing tops in linen and silk, layered tunics and skirts for all captures an Elysian insouciance in which I'd love spend summer. (This collection comes after yesterday's post here about the SS '19 Etro collection, also beautifully Asian-inspired.)
