Revolution without canvas
More than a sartorial garment, the unstructured jacket is the Kiton Hedonism manifesto. An ode to beauty, to the cult of elegance. In its creation it requires absolute mastery to become as cosy and comfortable as a glove.
It is a fantastic mix of nonchalant elegance and a level of casual with a sporting feel, an alchemy that generates a completely unusual garment. It fits like a pullover following the shape of the body. Less rigidity and more relaxation.
Vicuña, the fibre of the Gods
Impalpable ultra light wool
Unlike the classic jacket, the shoulders must perfectly fit the wearer’s own, precisely because there is no padding. If it is sewn by a skilled tailor, it can also help to conceal and hide those asymmetric defects that we all have.
A completely unlined jacket with absolutely no rolled shoulders, the part normally used to pad out the armholes. Inside it has refined, very resistant English-style double stitching
The button-holes have to be real, handstitched and open. An extra touch may be given by patch pockets
Its creation boasts the use of 99% pure fabric
MASTERY AND DEVOTION
The skill applied to seams and details so minute that they turn tailors into sculptors, working exquisite fabric millimetre by millimetre. A silent dialogue between fashion and art.
