At Pitti Uomo 85 Eidos Napoli made its second appearance and after a debut that was slightly describing nothing less than total success the expectations were high for sure.
Whereas the “theme and concept” for the Eidos S/S ´14 “This is Rome”-collection was young man’s first summer in the eternal city of Rome, this time inspiration comes from Florence, showing the “Faces of Firenze”. The line itself is again full of sportswear side garments mixed with fine tailoring and divided into “two different” sides - of which the first one brings out “Italian workwear” and other one is concentrated more tailored “business man” appearance.
In terms of Eidos, consistency is the key. Antonio and the guys have established a clear identity and they are developing vivid color stories with eccentric materials that really blur the line between casual workwear and conventional business attire.
The pictures don’t really make justice to this collection as the beauty of it relies on the materials and textures (as the pictured donegal tweeds and casentino fabrics shows), prints and little details (beautifully made one-piece collars and waistbands of trousers just to name a few) that needs to be seen in real. We are still waiting for the first store in Scandinavia to take Eidos to their selection but if the rumors are true we may not have to wait very long.
