Brioni recently debuted their AW19 collection, composed of 33 looks. Of course, this presentation was exactly what one expects of the Italian men’s formalwear experts, but with a subtle push towards the casual and playful.

There was structure with luxe wool jackets, tailored pants and plenty of layered outerwear. The expectation of formality was refreshingly met with slouchy sweatpants paired with chunky sweaters layered over dress shirts, and a double breasted, slim suit for a bit of an 80’s flair.

Norbert Stumpfl, Brioni’s design director had a clear vision for the brand since he was tapped for the role in October. He told WWD, “I wanted to make it less formal, the whole look, with this idea of wearing a luxurious garment but being able to forget about it and get on with life.”

There was definitely the sense of quickness, with the styling being a bit more laid-back. There were plenty of french-tucks, and windswept asymmetrical popped-collars. Perhaps the most playful section, ironically, was the eveningwear. Transitioning from a neutral color palette, full of rich browns and greys into a few intriguing but occasional pops of color were exciting. There was a pink velvet jacket layered over a brown bow tie and a brown velvet suit jacket layered over a pink knit shirt. The collection ended with an upscale classic, a full tux topped with a dramatic tailcoat jacket for a serving of Brioni's sartorial elegance
