Eternal splendor, eternally black
Versatile and timeless: black according to Davide Cenci Dal 1926
Critique of pure reason and Critique of practical reason: Kant climbs the abyss that binds together -
without actually doing it - the universal laws governing nature and the moral ones governing and
limiting, or not, the freedom of men. Kierkegaard and Schelling are two other founding fathers of
this philosophical movement , called existentialism: a movement that identifies the fragility of
existence as the problem. The senselessness, the absurd, the emptiness.
What would today’s hyper-connected generations think? And, specifically, what would the 3.0 generation, toward which we are headed, think after the previous ones? Younger and younger, more and more present on the internet, and with too few rules. Or maybe just without any rules.
A MAN IN TOTAL BLACK, A BEARER OF ELEGANCE, WHOM, ALSO THROUGH THE VERSATILITY OF FABRICS, WE LIKE TO THINK TO BE OPEN MINDED
The vision that Davide Cenci Dal 1926 projects, expressed through black graffiti, consists of a man in total black, a
bearer of elegance, whom, also through the versatility of fabrics, we like to think to be open
minded and, therefore, to have a more optimistic view of life, expressed - why not - also by playing
with different pairings.
The black, two-button cotton velvet jacket expresses the never too strict classicism that is perfect with the new proposal of this line – the slim fit five-pocket pant in stretch cotton. Here it is shown in a black denim delavé version with contrast stitching. Underneath the jacket a single ply cashmere turtleneck.
The shoes are the classic Oxford Consul named after the British ambassadors and politicians who wore them. The upper has double stitched seams and the leather sole is made with the Goodyear method by Church’s in its Northampton (England) factories. Finally, the 100% cashmere coat has a clean and essential line, set in sleeves, covered buttons and beasom pockets with flaps.
Here is the return of the man who thinks by rediscovering old alliances and imagining new ones.
