"This season, it's all about ease," declares vice president, North America, Giorgio Canali. To that end, he strives for clothing with unique combinations of color, texture and clean, uncluttered designs to epitomize his European style. "These are clothes with a focus on detail. Everything is soft and slim. Jackets are impeccably tailored in luxurious, supple fabrics and given a new elongated shape and leaner fit offset by rounder shoulders for a more relaxed look."
"The suit has always been the foundation of a man's wardrobe, taking him from day to night, uptown to downtown, to any city on the globe, and has always been the inspiration for my collections," says Donna Karan. Her pronouncement for fall 2000 is a sleek suit, sophisticated and cut to the body, in fabrics like innovative wools and stretch cashmere. A "modern tweed" provides texture and the palette is rich with jewel and mid tones. A new design is a convertible jacket, worn as a classic two-button or as a three-button with banded collar when buttoned at the neck. "Flexibility," she says, "is what modern dressing is all about."
"Clothes are cut to mold and articulate the body," says Calvin Klein. "The look is very sexy, forceful yet unassuming, subtle and disarming. The suit is young, sexy, modern, cut lean and linear with narrow shoulders and lapels." Shoes by John Lobb, Rolex watch.
