Sergio Corneliani’s love for whites and neutrals is in full bloom in this collection. Creams, charcoals, nudes, light blues and pearly whites come together to form relaxed proportions and smart staples. The slim waistcoats, loose polo shirts and lightweight knitwear has a certain kind of ease that is also mirrored by the formal suits and jackets, downplayed with simple T-shirts which can also be worn as separates. The jackets are shorter and looser around the waist, with three buttons and narrow lapels, worn with baggy, pleated trousers.

Classic sartorial patterns were swept aside in favour of rich compact stretch cottons, blended with silk in micro jacquard effects. Corneliani gives the classic shirt a summer makeover – looser in style with low shoulder lines and a funnel neck.

If we had to make our pick from this collection, it would definitely be the light-weight cream blazers, which would be ideal for the Indian weather.
