HOW TO DRESS
Look of the month
As if captured by the most well-known fashion photographers, the poolside becomes the ideal setting of a social and glamorous summer. The style reference here is a contemporary dandy: a man who’s well-read and sophisticated but devoted to a pleasant idleness for the summer break.
Green light for bright and soft colours then, together with the lightest fabrics, for a wearability that is at once basic and smooth. The white cotton cropped trousers follow these rules, and pair with monkstrap bicolour calfskin shoes with single buckle, sporting the Canali texture. The silk polo-shirt with rice-grain mesh has a mauve color: a light grey cardigan is also a good match.
The look is defined by subtle yet punchy accessories, like the impalpable cotton scarf with textured motif or the silk one, with a check print. If you’re wearing a shirt, precious cufflinks can help breaking the rigor, by adding a romantic twist: some of them feature floral patterns in lavender or silver finishes with printed texture. Others are squared and rhodium-plated, or silver-coloured with a C logo in black enamel.
