Dom Bagnato boxed suits at MSFW

Taking less of a revisionist approach to the cut of modern suit, Dom Bagnato’s spring 2011 offering took all the elements that go to construct a modern suit save for the cut – it wasn’t relaxed in so much as it was boxy. And while it’s hard to imagine not wanting to slim down the defined tailoring, it’s equally as hard not to be thankful for Dom Bagnato’s European overtones in a city awash with suits that are generally devoid of colour and patterned cloth.

Sadly the detail is hidden by the model’s arm, but you’ll probably have noticed how well cut the three-piece offering is in the above photo. Were he to lift his arms the model would reveal that the blazer has slimming pull tabs used as an external detail – if you’re having trouble imaging it think simply of the clasp that sits at the back of most waistcoats. It’s by no means a traditional feature, but a good statement feature if you’re looking for a few-seasons wonder for your wardrobe.

Having flown over 590,000 kilometres in a single year (2012), he’s done much to push the boundaries of a fashioniser, always looking to fold one extra Tom Ford suit into his set of Samsonite cases and for one extra occasion to tie a tie for. As much an editor-at-large as he is’s Editor-in-chief, when he's not travelling to all the fashion weeks his passports will allow him to, Daniel works on guiding this publication’s editorial and trend views.
