MY STYLE: LUCA BRONZINO

Pal Zileri new season collections have arrived at Harrolds bringing a sartorially decadent aesthetic informed by the design houses’ prestigious tailoring traditions. Due in part to new blood at the CEO and Creative Director positions, Pal Zileri’s new collection redefines it’s grey-haired reputation with the help of new CEO Paolo Roviera formerly of Ermenegildo Zegna and Creative Director Mauro Ravizza Krieger formerly of Caurso.

Harrolds sydney's Pal Zileri Ambassador Luca Bronzino discusses the new collection, growing up in sartorial mecca and his daily style.

WHERE IN ITALY WHERE YOU BORN?

I'M FROM A TOWN CALLED PESCARA IN THE PROVINCE OF ABRUZZO. PESCAEA IS FAMOUS BECAUSE OF IT’S INDUSTRIAL IMPORTANCE AND IS HOME TO LUXURY MENSWEAR LABELS INCLUDING GRAN SASSO AND BRIONI.

YOU GREW UP SURROUNDED BY THE FINEST TRADITIONS OF ITALIAN SARTORIALISM, WHAT EFFECT DID THOSE INFLUENCES HAVE ON THE WAY YOU DRESS NOW?

IT INSTILLED IN ME THE IMPORTANCE OF ALWAYS PUTTING MY BEST FOOT FORWARD, LOOKING GOOD AND DRESSING FOR A LIFESTYLE RATHER THAN SPECIFIC OCCASIONS. I GREW TO APPRECIATE THAT WEARING A SUIT SHOULD BE AN UPLIFTING EXPERIENCE AND NOT LOOKED AT LIKE A UNIFORM.

WHAT DO YOU THINK ABOUT WHEN YOU GET DRESSED IN THE MORNING?

FOR ME THE MOST IMPORTANT THING ABOUT GETTING DRESSED IN THE MORNING IS THE VARIETY AND VIBRANCY OF AN OUTFIT. DRESSING SHOULDN’T BE A CHORE; IT SHOULD BE A WAY TO EXPRESS YOUR MOOD IN AN EYE-CATCHING WAY.

WHAT TRAIT STANDS OUT MOST ABOUT PAL ZILERI?

THE MOST STRIKING THING ABOUT PAL ZILERI IS THE FIT. TO ME, PAL ZILERI CAPTURES THE ELEGANCE OF SHARP TAILORING IN THE CUT, SPECIFICALLY IN THE SOFTNESS OF THE TAILORING IN THE SHOULDER THAT IS TYPICAL OF TRADITIONAL ITALIAN CONSTRUCTION. IN RECENT YEARS SINCE PAOLO ROVIERA FROM ZEGNA TOOK OVER AS CEO AND INTRODUCED A SLIMMER CUT, PAL ZILERI HAS TRANSFORMED INTO A SARTORIAL LIFESTYLE BRAND. THROUGH THE INTRODUCTION OF THE CONCEPT LINE PAL ZILERI HAS BECOME A BRAND FOR ANY OCCASION BECAUSE IT COMBINES EVERYTHING FROM YOUTHFUL LOOKS IN DECONSTRUCTED JACKETS AND CHINOS THROUGH TO NON-CREASING TRAVEL JACKETS AND BRAND STAPLES, BUSINESS WEAR AND TUXEDOS.

HOW DOES PAL ZILERI REFLECT THE ITALIAN SARTORIAL TRADITION?

AS I MENTIONED, THE SOFTNESS OF THE TAILORING IN THE SHOULDER IS VERY TYPICAL OF ITALIAN CONSTRUCTION AS WELL AS GENEROUSLY CUT ARMHOLES THAT ARE A FEATURE EVEN ON THE FITTED JACKETS. PAL ZILERI GARMENTS ARE ALSO HAND-STITCHED AND THE JACKETS ARE CONSTRUCTED WITH FULLY LINED CANVASES SO YOU KNOW QUALITY AND CRAFTSMANSHIP ARE AT THE CENTER OF EVERYTHING THE BRAND MAKES.

WHAT DOES PAL ZILERI REPRESENT TO YOU?

THE FINEST TRADITION OF SARTORIAL MENSWEAR EXECUTED IN THE FINEST FABRICS AND CUT DECADENTLY IN A WAY UNIQUE TO THE BRAND. RECENTLY THE BRAND HAS COME TO REPRESENT LUXURIOUS CASUALWEAR AND A MIXTURE OF CUTTING EDGE TRENDS EXECUTED WITH FINEST SARTORIAL FLAIR.
