Canali SS’19 Collection with Hyun Wook Lee.
I had the privilege of attending the Canali SS’19 collection with designer Hyun Wook Lee in Milano last week. This was the first collection by him for Canali, and one that was highly anticipated.
As you may already know, Canali is one of my all time favorite suit makers (I wore a Canali tux at my wedding), so when they invited me to not only attend the presentation but also to have a one on one meeting with their new designer Hyun Wook Lee, I felt extremely honored. Being someone who has worn their brand for quite some time, I feel connected with not only their style, but with their heritage as well. This is something that I spoke about with their new designer. He told me how he wanted to maintain that heritage feel, but bring a modern touch to the brand without going overboard. He isn’t trying to fit in with the other suiting companies, he only wants to bring a fresh face to the brand. For me I felt this was doing justice to family run company. Mr. Wook Lee showed me muted pastels, light wools, and logo printed jumpers that were unlike any of the past, yet already felt familiar (as if he was designing for them for years). I’m so excited to see the release of this collection, and just know that you Gents are going to love it! In the meantime, check out some images we took at the presentation.
