Vitale Barberis Canonico: A New Collection for Men Of The Cloth

Presented at the latest Milano Unica, the Italian mill’s new AW 2021/2022 collection is based on the best raw materials from South America

To say that Vitale Barberis Canonico takes its fabrics seriously would be like saying that Berry Bros. & Rudd or Davidoff of London take a studious approach to wine and to dried, fermented tobacco leaves respectively. Its Creative Director Francesco Barberis Canonico, the 13th generation of the family which founded the mill more than 350 years ago, has even been known to lament there not being some kind of equivalent to “terroir”, to refer to any given wool fabric’s specific provenance, ethicality, the way it’s been washed and scoured and the length, crimp and lustre of the fleece from which it came.
