Coltrane | Etranges Pouvoirs

We are so excited to see our Luxe Loafer and Modern Oxford featured in the beautiful Coltrane AW 17 editorial.  The collection is called “November”, and the consistent visual theme of curved and slightly exaggerated shapes is balanced by a general calmness and a focus on detail. Slightly reminiscent of the bebop era, the suits have a casual and masculine cut. Coltrane's Creative director, Amihan Zemp, only works with the highest quality of fine and natural materials. This collection uses sustainable Swiss mountain silk, Italian wool and cashmere, as well as many organic fabrics of rare quality. All pieces are made in Switzerland.  A Frankie + Clo story.
