LEISURE COLLECTION SPRING SUMMER 2012
The Sergio Tacchini Leisure collection is the modern evolution of the sporty, elegant style that has
marked the off-court wear clothing brand since 1966.
Sport therefore becomes the main source of inspiration, with careful research into design to create
original and elegant casualwear, made unique by styles and symbols such as the famous polo shirt
and the unmistakable stripes.
The collection for next Spring/Summer comes in two main themes: Life Sea Club and Summer City
The first draws inspiration from the exclusive clubs of the most prestigious seaside resorts and
embodies their refined, elegant atmospheres in the choice of materials and colour palette, both for
women as well as for men. Cotton, in its different interpretations, is the season’s main player: a key
feature of the polo shirts with innovative details, it is mixed with silk in the knitwear and becomes a
comfortable insert in the outerwear, made in technical fabrics perfect for leisure time.
Ultramarine, white, melange grey and deep red – colours typical of the nautical world but also the
classic Sergio Tacchini shades, come both in plain colours as well as original combinations and
patterns, such as the new versions of the inimitable stripe, placed on polo shirts and sweaters and
inserted as a tape trimming on the sweatshirts and little jackets.
Summer City Elegant is instead the more urban vision of Tacchini style. The shapes are still soft and
simple, but elegance comes through in the careful attention to details, which are practical and at the
same time refined.
For men, besides the polo shirt, knitwear and colour are given major focus: the vibrant tones of
“Lake” green and “Ocean” blue brighten up the more classic diamond and micro-cable patterns,
bringing them right up to date.
Womenswear proposes a look inspired by the tennis clubs of the ‘60s, revamped with a modern slant.
The silhouette is simple, clean and sets off the female figure and its forms. The block colours of the
lightweight cotton dresses are teamed with the nuanced micro-patterns of the cardigans and sweaters
with contrasting edgings, matched with elegant suede outerwear.
Heritage by Sergio Tacchini is revived in the eponymous men’s line, which, taking its cue from
garments such as the polo shirts from the Young, Super Mac and 1966 lines, offers an innovative
vision of the brand aesthetic. New colour interpretations of the graphic symbols on the sweatshirts in
triacetate and jackets in lightweight nylon, original cabled motifs seen in the cotton sweater, which
besides the more traditional waistcoat, find expression in the precious overdyed polo shirt in navy and
ivory, in line with the fashion dictates of tennis clubs in the ’60s and ’70s.
Lastly, the crepe handle of the knitwear is a brand new feature, coming in playful blocks of colour that
combine ivory with red, green and blue, enhanced by details such as the drop collar with contrasting
stripes of the polo shirt, zip-up pullover and two-tone logo, which also provides a contrast with the
