Luxury carmaker Lamborghini revealed its 2016-17 Fall-Winter collection at the Pitti Immagine Uomo, the international menswear fair held in Florence, Italy.
Collezione Automobili Lamborghini presented the new lines at the Grand Hotel Villa Medici with champion Italian swimmer Marco Orsi as its guest of honour.
When out of the pool, Orsi, a member of the Fiamme Oro, the Italian National Police athletic team, chooses to wear Automobili Lamborghini gear.
The current 100-m European champion and former runner-up world champion in the 50-m course, Orsi won one gold and two silver medals at the 2015 European Swimming Championships. Holding Italian freestyle records for the past two years, he currently holds the Italian record in the 50 m freestyle.
The 2016 Fall Winter collection covers the Classic, Casual and Squadra Corse lines.
The Classic Line’s Sartorial Voyager features technical fabric trench coats and small leather items - a formal and functional collection to travel in style, featuring top quality materials exclusively made with Italian yarns, fabrics and leather.
The dark navy trench coat is made with high performance technical fabric. Breathable and stretchable, the inside the coat features a ‘‘Y’’ pattern, with three Ys forming the classic Lamborghini hexagon.
The supple leather jacket is lined in lightly padded nylon with hexagonal pattern stitching.
The sartorial slim fit shirt with a French collar comes in striped light blue cotton with a fil coupé pattern of small Ys.
A range of small leather goods in charcoal rubber-coated leather with a hexagonal weave come in a gun-metal grey matte finish and with the Automobili Lamborghini emblem.
In the Casual Line’s Upper Sportswear, premium materials assuring outstanding performance in terms of comfort are used to present a sophisticated collection.
The mélange cotton sweater features biker-style quilted sections and, on the front, the 1963 Eccellenza Superiore motif complemented by the Lamborghini emblem.
The ultra-light down jackets are water-resistant and feature the distinctive hexagonal pattern stitching in cabernet red, dark navy and cadmium yellow. The jackets come with a pouch into which they can be folded.
Polo shirts and t-shirts feature graphics and prints dedicated to Huracán and Aventador as well as distinctive Lamborghini motifs such as ‘Bull LXIII’, the international flags and Sant’Agata Bolognese.
A new addition is a Casual Heritage edition, launched to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Miura, an iconic Lamborghini that reinvented the notion of sports cars.
The two-door Miura is the protagonist of this line of polo shirts, sweaters, tracksuit trousers and vintage wash-effect t-shirts, whose style embodies the charm and the contemporary luxury that this Lamborghini icon has represented since 1966.
Meanwhile, Lamborghini’s racing spirit is fully expressed in the Squadra Corse collection, dedicated to Lamborghini’s love for motorsport.
Garments feature high-tech materials resistant in extreme conditions, waterproof membranes and bold lines.
The outerwear jacket with a lasered central zip fastening combines quilted Chevron nylon with softshell profiles on the sides and sleeves. It is also available in a super thermo-taped technical version, in breathable stretch fabric with a slim fit, collar with retractable hood, and waterproof coated zip fastenings.
The black sweater comes in light super stretch fabric while the mélange version is in soft fleece. Both feature lasered zip fastenings and the ‘‘Pilota Ufficiale’’ claim.
The new collections will be available at Lamborghini boutiques in Sant’Agata Bolognese, Dubai Mall, Bellavita Shopping Mall Taipei, Lamborghini official retailers worldwide and the Lamborghini Corners in Bangkok (Siam Paragon, The Emporium), Pattaya City (Central Festival Pattaya), Dubai (Galeries Lafayette), Abu Dhabi and Dubai (House of Fraser)
Over half a century Lamborghini has produced a series of dream cars, including 350 GT, Miura, Espada, Countach, Diablo, Murciélago, and the limited edition cars such as Reventón, Sesto Elemento, Aventador J. Veneno Coupé, and Egoista and Veneno Roadster, designed to celebrate the company’s 50th anniversary in 2013.
