From the birth of rhythm to the very first chords, a silhouette exists as surely as a crooner’s voice on vinyl. Piece after piece, note after note, De Fursac recites its unwaveringly chic music score.
The world moves at its own speed, and so does style. As a metronome of chic, De Fursac’s new collection is based on the theme of rhythm. Rigorous or laid-back elegance, new colours and new pieces for changing spirits: this season’s wardrobe is adjusted to the tempo of modern life.
So opt for a double-breasted tuxedo in wool panama and mohair, chose a jacket with a muted windowpane houndstooth motif on wool flannel, or sport a cherry red cardigan, and keep the pace up in more ways than one.
Every look is an edifice by which we measure beauty in the precision of its few lines. Clear, decisive and rigorous, those of the silhouette and its clothes come together here in the name of elegance invented by the architect of chic, De Fursac.
Leaning against a wall in London, the man of the new De Fursac collection borrows from the chic silhouettes of 1960's spies in Her Majesty’s Service, those men accustomed to mystery but for whom style was no secret.
And because caring for his appearance is a mission of great importance, he completes it dressed in a Lanificio F.lli Cerruti “iTravel” blue wool panama suit, a houndstooth jacket with a velvet collar or a navy blue wool whipcord trench coat.
For this collection, conceived beneath Italian skies, De Fursac borrows Godard’s décor of Le Mépris, evoking the sun-kissed days of Capri and waking up the elegance of the 1960s, a stone’s throw from the beach.
In tribute to the New Wave, chose a lightweight suit or a three-piece ensemble in wool and silk, enjoy the fitted cuts and the olive green of a supple jacket, a cardigan or a pair of trousers with turn-ups, and make this coming summer the very chicest of wedding seasons.
Summoning the ghost of Steve McQueen in Le Mans and the imagery of John Frankenheimer’s Grand Prix, this short video ties together, over a few circuit laps, the notions of speed, iconic design and timeless masculine elegance.
