“All men need a garment that says something about them.” A phrase that discloses a world, to rediscover a concept of “fashion” that places man back in the center. Fulfilling a need – felt and experienced – to express the timeless codes of the male personality, a collection of shirts conceived and designed by Alessandro Squarzi for BAGUTTA.
The collection embodies the interpretation of a human journey, an inquisitive mind that for thirty years has been driven by impulses, passions, stories, people and values, now ingeniously translated into an aesthetic idea even before it becomes a product. Travels to Japan, a manic passion for cottons with a powerful personality, cuts borrowed from military uniforms, and forays into an ancient culture comprised of details that meld beauty with function.
This story, this life story, gives rise to Alessandro Squarzi’s creations; every detail of every shirt – thanks to BAGUTTA’s superb craftsmanship – becomes a distinct, personal mark. Like the reinforced neckline facing that discloses the value of military-like flawlessness, with a collar that remains perfectly in place even when the shirt is worn tie-less. Or the highly functional yet aesthetically quirky idea of sewing the breast pocket on the inside, preserving without showing it: yet another solution born of creative intelligence. Or again, the label that makes a compelling statement: «Designed by one of the most extravagant men of Italian style».
