There are few brands that remain unphased by fluctuating trends, staying true to the belief upon which they were founded and continuously delivering top-quality, timeless collections. But one brand that has is Aspesi. Starting as a specialist shirt manufacturer almost five decades ago, the Italian label is well versed in making garments that are timeless in their design, classic in their cuts, and most importantly, that boast exceptionally premium fabrics. For Fall/Winter 2018, the brand maintains these founding principles and its “no-logo” philosophy while looking to workwear and military silhouettes for seasonal inspiration.

Encompassing men’s and women’s ranges, this season’s collection sees the brand venture into “gender fluid” territory with a significant offering of mirrored his-her garments. As with previous seasons, the collection is sophisticated yet practical and casual, referencing workwear through functional details on outerwear styles, as well as with a range of flannel shirts that call to mind blue-collar uniforms. The collection also alludes to military garments with double-breasted riding coats, boiled wool pea coats, and jackets that reinterpret the structured silhouettes of army attire.

Of course, no Aspesi collection would be complete without an impressive selection of high-quality textiles, and for FW 2018 the brand has looked to all corners of the world for inspiration, making use of Irish wool and linen, French silk, Harris Tweed and Scottish plaid, Japanese cotton, and even Italian cashmere.

Underlining the gender fluid approach, Aspesi called upon brother and sister modeling duo Nils and Lou Schoof to sport the range in a fall photoshoot. Featured in the images on this page are a selection of our favorite threads including checkered shirts, corduroy jackets, double denim looks, and an eye-catching bright yellow down jacket.
