Season 04 of Meta Campania Collective expands on the theme of the artist’s wardrobe, realized in the highest quality fabrics and constructions. Color remains as essential as material and fit. A core palette of black, midnight blue, dark-chocolate brown, white, Weimaraner grey and light beige are here highlighted with meta blue, light rose pink, mint and bottle green.
This season sees the staple workwear jacket joined by a workwear trouser fashioned in exaggerated proportions and a variety of materials. The versatile, everyday trouser has been produced in wale cotton corduroy, midweight Italian cashmere, cotton cashmere, raw Japanese denim, and tight-woven cotton oxford, giving a unique drape and feel to each.
Tailoring is also revamped. Relaxed, modern, and elegant, Season 04 adds a selection of suiting in velvet, wool twills, and a wide-spaced pinstripe running up and down midnight-blue virgin wool. A double-breasted cashmere jacket, again in midnight blue, adds a final accent.
Ample silhouettes, created without economizing on fabric, convey confidence and immediate luxury. This is most evident in outerwear pieces: an oversized update to the classic peacoat, a cashmere blouson, an Italian nylon parka and hand-quilted bomber jacket. A hooded wrap-coat in ultra-soft boiled wool or lamb shearling can be worn draped open and free-flowing or cinched and belted to produce volume.
The sense of luxury through choice of fabric and just-the-right proportion is also felt in the knitwear: A chunky cashmere rib-knit cardigan—as much outerwear as sweater—is richly understated; the MCC raglan-sleeve cashmere crewneck returns, now in Shetland wool and mohair along with classic cashmere. Shirting follows the same fabric-first approach: cotton, wale cotton corduroy, cashmere and cotton-cashmere have been selected for quality, hand, and wear without compromise.
