COTTWEILER S/S 2017
As Milan fashion week gets underway, Antonia dedicates its windows to the S/S 2017 collection of buzzy men’s wear brand Cottweiler, designed by Matthew Dainty and Ben Cottrell.
Inspired by the idea of the “future ruin of a hotel resort,” besides the architecture of the building, many looks draw from the uniforms and technical sports gear worn by the staff. The result is an experimental mix of traditional fabrics such as stretch Oxford cottons mixed up with industrial treatments in earthy tones, white, plums and shades of blues. The well-constructed sporty-meets-utility lineup includes tracksuits and jogging pants, often in gauzy transparencies, countered by tailored blazers, shirts and shorts.
Established in 2010, Cottweiler has established a strong cult following becoming a highly influential lifestyle brand for young affluent men seeking forward-looking novelty in men’s dressing.
