Surrealism vs. reality


Let's have fun!

“Everything is a mystery in life”, said René Magritte, the greatest surrealist painter.

Also known as “le saboteur tranquille” for his ability to insinuate doubt into reality, he enjoyed translating in his very personal way and vision the distance that interposes between reality and its representation.

If nothing is as it seems, in his dream-like illusionism and his signature style we detect flying heads and dreamy bodies interspersed with clouds or juxtaposed with other objects he has turned into fantastic elements.

But do we really need to amaze, or even shock, distancing ourselves from what is real, to catch someone’s eye?

DO WE REALLY NEED TO AMAZE, OR EVEN SHOCK, DISTANCING OURSELVES FROM WHAT IS REAL, TO CATCH SOMEONE'S EYE?

Of course, we all like to amaze and dare, sometimes, with a little sur-real and fun combinations. That’s why we mix colors and prints, and we hit the mark with contrasting hues and blend different fabrics: like in this outfit, that combines a botanical print washed linen shirt with a mud-tone, cotton poplin, unlined and unconstructed suit.

Without ever sacrificing a nonchalant and cool attitude and understated elegance. And even more so without losing sight of quality, which we consider a real asset, paramount and vital.

Davide Cenci proposes a playful, colorful and sparkling attitude, visible in the color block used on the cover and in the flying hats. The two-button, mud-tone cotton and elastane suit dresses impeccably the Dal 1926 man without forgoing comfort and functionality.

The jacket features flap pockets and side vents and is paired with matching, flat-front pants. Underneath the jacket, the spread collar shirt embellished with palm trees and ferns instantly evokes a holiday mood: the summer, the sea, the sun.

Made from washed linen, as we were saying before, in a light blue tone. The outfit is rounded out by brown suede sneakers with contrasting trimming and handmade stitching from Church’s. To keep the flying heads firm on the ground.
