Xacus, the historic Italian shirt company established by Alberto Xoccato in the fifties, presents the new spring-summer collection 2015 at Pitti Uomo 86 in Florence.
The Xacus collection keeps the tradition of refinement and elegance typical of the Italian men’s fashion, yet revisiting the shapes and volumes, the design and the colours, according to the latest trends of the moment. Prints still reign as bestseller in the new Xacus preview, in which a poplin model with patterns inspired by Pop Art and a shirt in black and white microprints, stand out.
For those who choose a classic and formalwear, but increasingly reviseted and influenced by the latest trends, Xacus offers a wide range of shirts characterized by a sober and light line. By reducing the wings, the collar shape become lighter and racier, putting greater emphasis on the line of the shoulders, and the volumes harmoniously highlight the lines of the body. For the new summer collection the Italian company has selected, as ever, high quality fabrics, light and comfortable yarns and jacquard woven fabrics, a classic of the male shirts wardrobe, yet also giving a particular attention to the free-winkle collection, technology advanced performance shirts that remain perfectly ironed throughout the whole day and don’t need to be ironed after washing.
