How Mosetti tailors the spring/summer 2016 season

posted in | Tags : , , ,

I know Alex Moise for a few years now and he is always, anywhere he goes, one of the best dressed men in the room. He let go the corporate life for entrepreneurship, and that was a great move. Alex works in the menswear made-to-measure niche for about 8 years and he launched Mosetti 1 year ago.

The brand focuses on executing ceremony suits but also elegant pieces for men who already know their personal style. Alex offers in his showroom consultancy regarding measurements, color palette, fabrics and styling. He insists on me writing that the bow tie is the evening neckwear while the tie is for daytime outfits. And that because gentlemen say no to the first option from the beginning, whether because they have never tried it or because this item seems too formal.

Today we go through the Ceremony 2016 collection and we learn about some spectacular styling ideas for the new season. 
How long does it take to make a suit after the final meeting with the client?
It takes about 4 weeks, but we recommend the grooms to come 6-8 weeks before the event because, from our experience, the last month before the wedding can arrive with lots of surprises. 
What fabrics do you recommend for SS16?
This year we brought new fabrics in the showroom, made from wool and silk in classic colors like black or navy, but with a textured feel. Also, we played a lot with bold hues of marsala, burgundy and violet, on cotton velvet or on “Super 140S” wool. Plus, my favorites, the Prince of Wales check prints in different patterns on wool and cashmere.
Which is your favorite print mix between the shirt and tie in this new season?
The combinations between the shirt and tie have always been the color splash I used to transform a classic suit. 
I prefer a plain pastel shirt (pink, lilac, light blue) and a darker tone for the tie (dark cherry, navy), but always with a micro pattern like flowers or geometric shapes.
