Iceberg Menswear SS14

The Florentine countryside inspires muted colours and a softer side to sporty city slickers

Iceberg offered a rather fitting show this season. Spiritually, because it was one of the brand’s more youthful outings and Paolo Gerani was using the occasion to pass the baton onto 37-year-old Florentine Federico Curradi after a 7 year tenure consulting on the collection. But also literally – technical and more sartorial fabrics came together to form slick and polished silhouettes, in line with the sporty air, which has swept, no, stormed through menswear of late. Though minimal, detail was central, with multiple zips, at times working alongside buttons, and panels adding structure to otherwise more casual pieces. And was the muted, urban colour palette perhaps Curradi’s non-verbal way of alluding to his new position? According to show notes, Curradi resides in a house just outside Florence, while this collection had "people who need to live in a big city, frantically and dynamically" in mind.
