Milan’s true beauty is hidden behind closed doors. Swung open every day, the imposing front portals reveal eclectic entryways, that are the best representation of how the 20th century has grown elegantly and effortlessly in the city.
As an invitation towards discovery, drawing one in to admire their soft-spoken magnificence, entryways embed a contrasting use of geometry and materials, bold color combinations and a flair that’s unique to the city.
Serapian’s link with Milan and its cultural and design heritage is woven in its 95-old history. For its spring/summer 2024 men’s collection, “Milanese Geometries,” the Maison celebrates the city’s knack for understated opulence.
Serapian’s two souls are best exalted in the heritage Stepan 72 collection welcoming new creations crafted from the namesake iconic coated canvas embellished with leather details. The new Backpack and Sling bag get a youth-brimming spin in black with leather accents, while the travel-ready North/South Tote and Clutch designs are offered in navy blue with leather elements.
In the Stepan range curry yellow details add a very Milanese touch to timeless styles done in asphalt grey. As much as the city’s ingress, the contrasting yellow profile of the Secret tote bag is an invite to explore its interior.
The same eclectic combination of tones transitions in the oneiric Mosaico collection of woven nappa leather pieces. In the Mestieri d’Arte lineup, the epitome of Serapian’s craftsmanship and savoir faire, the signature technique is taken to new heights by embedding suede in the intricate patterns inspired by the marble flooring of the Milanese entryways. The oversize travel bags in the collection combine anthracite grey and curry yellow leather with taupe suede accents and navy blue and silver with denim blue suede.
Rounding off the spring/summer 2024 offering, the Cachemire line, known for its tactile softness, welcomes a grainy leather curry yellow tote for men in the know, while Evoluzione’s classy elegance echoes in the new leather backpack and soft weekender twill bag, both rendered in a deep denim blue tone.
