Editor’s Notes: Established in 1974, Iceberg continues to approach each season with a creative and forward-thinking direction that is clearly rooted in the brand’s Italian heritage. Fall/Winter 2018 is no exception with the luxury label’s Creative Director James Long delivering an original and contemporary collection that stays true to Iceberg’s slick sportswear-infused Italian aesthetic.
Exploring the power of contradictions, this season sees the Italian label fuse formal with casual, tradition with innovation, and Italian heritage with London style. Long has applied this philosophy to the garments too, contrasting fabrics such as tartan with quilted technical inserts and leather details. Similarly, fits are opposing with oversized, loose jumpers and sweatshirts teamed with slim trousers and sweatpants.
In contrast to the collection’s highlight pop cashmere sweaters, the color palette is heavy on darker shades with olives, reds, and black taking precedence. Bold logo placement, stitched on patches, and material inserts bring an edge to the range, recalling the style of Long’s native London. As with previous seasons, a touch of irony is interweaved into the range through the reappropriation of cartoon characters, which this time comes in the form of the lovable cat and mouse duo Tom & Jerry.
Alongside apparel, the collection delivers a selection of accessories encompassing caps, scarves, beanies, and fresh white branded sports socks ideal for flexing with the brand’s offering of luxe leather sneakers.
