Experimenting with different coloured suits is a thought that doesn’t come across most men. As they are restricted with the safety of traditional navy, grey and black suit. Colour is directed by a few simple rules that, once learned and then mastered, making colour selection an easy task. However, there are certain colours that are appropriate for any occasion, and others that while suitable for one occasion would be completely forbidden at another.
The Brilliant contrast of blues and yellows, mixtures of different patterns were inspired by Starry Night. Painted in 1889 by the Dutch post-impressionist painter Vincent van Gogh. Starry Night is one of the most recognized paintings in the world. I use the colour combination of timeless post-impressionist painting and turn it into a flamboyant and elegant garment. That can be used during summer in memorable events such as Pitti Uomo.
