The new safari jacket: for the modern traveler

The safari jacket, made from sturdy, long-lasting fabrics, was first created between the 1800s and the 1900s, precisely when the great European powers were engaged in an extensive colonial conquest. Victorian England kicked off the trend, turning the shirt-jacket into a no-nonsense uniform, suitable for tropical climates.

Hemingway could be the jacket’s ideal ambassador, wearing the five-pocket edition: the extra slot for his glasses… But let’s now debunk the idea it’s a men’s only piece. It was Yves Saint Laurent who adapted his Saharienne to the female body, toning down its severe look, and at the same time adding to it a special vibe, a desire for empowerment which was deeply felt back in 1968.

A cult piece, if we envisage ourselves, brave and cautious, as we delve into African wildlife, wearing a jacket that evokes a safari in the savannah and warm hues like khaki, brown, beige and hazelnut.

A CULT PIECE, IF WE ENVISAGE OURSELVES, BRAVE AND CAUTIOUS, AS WE DELVE INTO AFRICAN WILDLIFE, WEARING A JACKET THAT EVOKES A SAFARI IN THE SAVANNAH AND WARM HUES.

Davide Cenci has revisited the jacket offering a highly practical women’s design featuring multiple pockets and details that make for an utterly modern fit. And it becomes even more practical with the choice of a fine microfiber.

And that eye on the cover what does it stand for?

It represents a meticulous gaze, looking for the tiniest details and focusing also on the B-side, the back of the jacket that determines the perfection of the cut and the individual strong points of its design.

A beautiful jacket from all angles, therefore. The safari jacket is finished off with a belt or, in this case, with a drawstring closure. Our khaki design features 4 patch pockets and shoulder tabs.

The jacket is teamed with 5-pocket, stretch cotton bootcut jeans from Jacob Cohen, but will look fabulous also with matching wide-leg pants and in white or black, besides classic khaki.

The western style cotton denim shirt features mother-of-pearl buttons and shoulder tabs. The ensemble is rounded out with Premiata sneakers in soft blue suede with ripstop nylon inserts.
