Good things come in exclusive packages. This season, inspired capsule collections make indelible style statements.
With tastemakers and trendsetters focused on exclusivity, this spring is all about the capsule collection. Three are at the very top of the list, and it all begins with Giorgio Armani (25 E. Oak St., 312-751-2244). The designer takes modernity to the next level with a just-for-spring capsule collection in his New Normal line launched last year, offering a reinterpreted look at his own iconic styles. Newer, lightweight pieces offer a fresher take on spring’s suiting options with checkered blazers, band-collared shirts, and a long flowing skirt in soft color palettes of gray, white, and navy blue.
And for après-ski favorite Moncler (33 E. Oak St., 312-361-8573), it’s all about rock ’n’ roll, as the brand launches an all-black men’s capsule collection celebrating the Rolling Stones’ 50-plus-year history, with standout pieces like four leather jackets lined with the band’s iconic tongue-and-lips logo.
Meanwhile, Salvatore Ferragamo (645 N. Michigan Ave., 312-397-0464) Creative Director Massimiliano Giornetti joins Aquazzura designer Edgardo Osorio to harken back to the brand’s celebrated mid-century footwear. The Edgardo Osorio for Salvatore Ferragamo collection features 11 shoe styles, like rainbow wedges and winged sandals, reinterpreted from iconic Ferragamo designs from the 1930s, ’40s, and ’50s for the ultimate in retro chic.
