Doppiaa, the Italian-based menswear label brought to life by long-time friends Alain Fracassi and Albert Carreras, is defining a new wave of tailoring. Since its establishment in 2015, the house has become renowned for its reinterpretation of classic Italian style and its refreshingly modern and playful take on smart casual dressing. Fracassi and Carreras refuse to compromise on quality and maintain a dedication to 100% Italian manufacturing and the relentless pursuit of innovative materials. With Fracassi's family history (his father founded a Brescia-based tailoring retail business in 1969) and Carreras' business acumen, the duo bring a youthful energy to the clothes, a distinct experimentalism that facilitates embracing individuality and uniqueness. Yet at the same time, these are versatile garments with an easy-to-wear quality that beg to be integrated into one’s everyday wardrobe.
Never has this been more evident than with the label’s most recent Spring Summer ‘19 collection, titled ‘Daydream’. Available now to shop on The Rake, the collection is inspired by the concept of dreaming with one’s eyes open: it endeavours to substantiate visions from an immaterial world of ideas and intuitions to clothing with a unique character, conceived and constructed for the contemporary gentleman - a man of many tastes and talents.
