Jason Basmajian, creative director at Brioni, said that the inspiration for the colours of the fall-winter 2012-2013 menswear collection came from a trip to Greenland and the Arctic circle, with a lot of grey, cool blue, light browns, and some more dramatic violets and purples. Tones that are not always easy to wear and take a little panache, above all in Italy where particularly in theatrical circles, violet is a colour generally avoided due to superstition.
But in the face of these beautiful looks by Brioni, let's embrace this glorious colour and stand out from the crowd! Violet is perfect with black and grey, as shown by the looks below.
