Media Release : Fabiani Modern Dandy Winter 2014 Collection



















































This season, Fabiani embraces the Modern Dandy – a carefully curated elegance achieved by blending modern trends with iconic classics. Traditional tailoring and heritage fabrics exude dapper charm whilst contrasting sport inspired street wear evokes an unexpected je ne sais quoi.

Go Brit this winter by draping long coats over sleek jackets in shades of grey, black and opulent earth tones. Tweed, velvet and herringbone give the collection a touch of nostalgia with waistcoats, scarves and gloves channeling the English gentleman. Crisp gingham, micro floral and slim tuxedo shirts, all expertly finished with Fabiani signature detailing and contrast trims, add a pop of dandy inspired quirkiness.

With a big focus on outerwear and layering, Fabiani’s Modern Dandy has an extensive selection from which to choose. A classic trench with a bold neon pink trim, a sophisticated velvet slim jacket, a buttery Nappa leather biker jacket, a tweed jacket with elbow patches, and window pane check fashion jackets ensure the perfect piece for every occasion. Pair a blazer or coat with luxurious knitwear and finish with a pair of cotton sateen chinos for a look that exudes nonchalant elegance.

In contrast to this dapper aesthetic, Fabiani adds a playful twist through the introduction of modern sweat pants, patent leather sneakers and polka dot polo.  The fusion of heritage fashion with sports luxe styling gives a classic look the Modern Dandy edge.

The collection’s colour palette extends beyond timeless black, white and grey to embrace rich heritage hues of royal navy, plum and emerald green. These classic tones are juxtaposed with high sheen sateen to add an alluring sense of street style bling.

Shoes are handmade in Italy to the highest standards, and styles in the Modern Dandy collection include the Chelsea boot, brogue, boot and lace up Derby.

Fabiani has been in a strategic partnership with premium Scotch whisky brand Chivas since 2008.  “Both Chivas Regal 12 and Fabiani provide a way for the modern gentleman to stand apart from the crowd, recognise the value of craft and heritage and express success through luxurious items made exclusively for them,” says Mac Mabidilala, Brand Manager for Chivas Regal. “Fabiani has come to represent the style of truly modern


South African gentlemen, which is why the partnership between the two brands is a natural one, as both Fabiani and Chivas are rooted in substance, heritage and style. Both Fabiani and Chivas Regal 12 use the finest materials and deploy skills passed down from generation to generation, to produce award winning products.” The Fabiani Collection is exclusively available at Fabiani stores.
