The Fresco Fabric

When you hear the word “fresco” they are likely to visualize a particular style of painting which can be often found on ceilings, plaster or on walls. The word”fresco” comes of the Italian affresco meaning more than “fresh”. This perfectly describes the method since the color must apply to plaster for as long as it’s damp. This year, I got the opportunity to view the world’s biggest ceiling fresco (677 meters or 7287 feet) which was remarkable, and therefore it was included in the UNESCO World Heritage List on the 30th of October, 1981.

I’ve always wanted to write about the various ways to wear a fresco suit since the end of summer when we created our Spring/Summer 2019 fashion book. We’re a small team and certain things are put off to the side. It happens that there’s nothing better than a month-long break to make space for the projects we’ve always wanted to complete. In an earlier Swatches piece, we adore this fabric because of its incredible breathability and beautiful drape. A further feature that is important particularly when it’s the right shade of blue is its flexibility. A suit that is lightweight and has stunning color and feel like it offers a variety of ways to style it and here’s an look at a few of the ways I wear it.

Louche Dressy

With its vivid blue hue The most appropriate pairing for this suit is an open collared shirt and loafers. This is the kind of look I’d wear for semi-formal Summer gathering or a night out. The more appealing should you borrow the car of someone else’s Porsche to get around in (thanks Alan). In contrast to the blue suit’s solid color the seersucker band with striped stripes collar shirt is a focal point. I’m not a fan of excessively brightening up on the front and a soft multi-colored brown and blue silk pocket square is a great way to finish the style. If you’re looking for warm-weather tailoring, there aren’t many more appropriate combinations than fresco or seersucker to combat the heat.

Summer Casual

Making it more casual, during a weekend breakfast in Southampton I wore my suit with a light cotton jersey polo from our ready-to wear collection. The fabric of the suit can make an important difference. If you’re wearing the Summer suit with knits, the most natural option is a casual fabric . Suits made composed of linen, cotton, or blends of wool are common and, in general, ideal. Wool is not as popular since it’s generally slightly more formal. However, with its smooth texture, vibrant color, and the open weaving, the wool scarf can be worn casually, as in this. Espadrilles add a touch of style and emphasise that it’s meant for casual wear.

Professional Attire

When you’re in the city, dress the look with a tie to wear for an evening out and about from the store. There are many options to tie a formal ensemble in this suit, and here we chose to go with more of a lighter tone. A soft yellow shirt provides an unexpected backdrop for a beautiful silk tie that is printed in light blue. The vibrant hue of navy suit is a great match with the light yellow shirt, however other alternatives for natural shirts are white or pink or colored blues. You’ll be able to trust me for it. I was wearing the proper Edward Green loafers that day and they look very attractive, however most of the time I’d opt for a pair middle-brown Belgian loafers with a look similar to this.

I’ll close by bringing up a idea. The way we styled it was not the in the first place, but in the event that the suit jacket was embellished by horns in brown,, you could use it to create a formal blazer particularly if you’re on the road and you’re looking to pack lightweight. In the end, when constructed using the right fabric an open-weave suit is a remarkably versatile piece that provides many styling options for any occasion during the summer months.
