Surfing the arctic seas and exploring Iceland’s fascinating landscapes is f/w 2022-23’s new mantra for Alanui, a sporty Italian luxury sustainable brand founded by brothers Nicolò and Carlotta Oddi in 2016, though only recently focusing on a more sustainable direction as made, in addition to cashmere, wool and alpaca, also with an array of regenerated and eco-friendly yarns.
The brand offers men’s, women’s and kids’ apparel along with home textiles. Key items of the collection are cardigans and sweaters in elaborate 3-D knitted effects hyped by brushed surface effects. Coats that wrap around the body and varsity jackets are paired with relaxed pajama-like jacquard trousers, knitted joggers and jeans. Tartan or cotton canvas shirts are worn next to alpaca jacquard piqué sets, Baja hoodies, argyle sweaters and eco-wool knitted items creating a melange graphic motif of chains.
For the first time, Alanui presents its distinctive interpretation of the puffer jacket, that, shown in the Icon and the Bandana pattern, are both crafted from yarns treated for a water-repellent effect.
The collection is crafted using a wide range of artisanal techniques to create wardrobe of versatile pieces perfect to be worn both in the city and in the great outdoors thanks to motifs that are reminiscent of Aurora Borealis 3-D effects, and bandana-inspired decors.
Part of the brand’s offer are also a series of collaborations, for instance, with The Rolling Stones and with Poldo Dog Couture, a dog clothing brand, that continue, and two new exciting partnerships within the footwear world. The brand teamed up with Moon Boot to present three snow boots in several color variations featuring the Icon and bandana patterns, along with crochet motifs. It also collaborated with Diemme on high and low hiking boots, showing the laces decorated with recycled plastic beads.
Prices range from €950 for shirts, €1,490 for jackets and €2,500 to €3,690 for cardigans.
