I’m a wanderer who lives far away from home, whenever I meet someone comes from my country, Taiwan, the emotion of mine will easily increases, not to mention when seeing a Taiwanese rise and shine in a foreign place. Ping Jie Wang, my very good friend in Milan has recently became the designer of the menswear of Larusmiani, and Italian luxury brand where you can find it in Via Montenapoleone. At the day of the presentation I was carrying my camera and ran to the showroom, was super exciting to see how the collection would look like! PJ說，這一季春夏新品的概念是“卡步裡島海灘度假風”，卡布裡島Capri是義大利南部的度假勝地，每到夏天人們搭着快艇前往花團錦簇的小島，享受地中海的陽光和南義的美食，度過慵懶又繽紛的假期。新品著墨於色塊的搭配，大面積鮮艷的用色是義大利男裝的拿手絕活，配上海軍風細節，連不喜歡海灘跟曬太陽的我看了都好想衝去度假。
The theme of this season is “Holiday in Capri”, PJ said. Whenever we talk about holidays, joy and color come into our mind, so does the season collection, bright color blocks for spring and summer were every where on the clothes. Most of the time I hate going to the beach and getting tan, but after seeing these I really wanna go straight to Capri for a vacation.
The details on the casual line are important as well, it makes the different form luxury to ordinary.
See something different of this jacket? The sutures were not the simple pattern of rhombus, they are inspired from the fence of our back yard!
“I called this pattern Super Man, haha!” PJ said. I feel like talking to a real Super Man.
I was asking PJ what the pattern is on the scarf, thought it might be bullets or missile (things like that, gosh I’m such a violent girl), his answer was: this is what you see when you stand at the highest place of Capri and look down to the ocean, these are the yachts on the surface of the sea. Super nice idea from the concept of this season “vacation at Capri”. 模特兒們所展示的是品牌的經典正裝系列，有多像現代白馬王子。
Models are wearing the classic wear of Larumiani, looked like now a days prince charming.
