ALBERTO sees itself as a culturally influenced pants label on the move developed for people on the move. People for whom quality, comfort and freedom are essential, people who seek relevance and find style. Founded around 100 years ago with the aim of becoming a dynamic, innovative presence in the international fashion world while constantly setting new standards, the brand has remained true to its original ethos right up to the present day. Contemporary craftsmanship and design testify to this just as much as the company’s own concept store or the use of intelligent, voice-controlled interaction systems. What began as a small pants manufacturer has long since become a staple in collections – e.g. for urban bikers: a brand that has set itself the goal of anticipating its customers’ needs and bringing them together in an inspiring lifestyle concept that is also valid aside from all trends.
Each garment stands alone, but together they are absolutely irresistible – in its winter collection for 2019, ALBERTO presents a series of dressy styles, cotton pants, jeans and corduroys in which every fibre breathes distinction and close attention is paid to every detail. This is evident not only from the colourful buttonholes, elaborate linings, intricate patterns, two-tone quilting, and contrasting tabs and waistbands, but also from the innovative washes, subtle autumnal colourways and the sophisticated checks, herringbones, stripes and structured patterns in matching shades. What’s more, when it comes to shapes, ALBERTO will be upping its game next season with a number of newcomers and new interpretations of classics including an updated version of “Pleat”. File under: Favourite pants for every situation.
Corduroy, the fabric of kings, will finally be making its comeback in ALBERTO’s next winter collection with no less than three styles. Along with one of last season’s best-sellers, the newcomers include bi-coloured cord pants in classic 5-pocket look. The absolute highlights are the “Wide” cords in sophisticated off-white and the superfine babycord narrow-leg chinos in pale earthy shades.
It would have been unthinkable just a few years ago, but jeans have now become a fixture for classy business outfits – and not just for Casual Friday. For the 2019 winter season, ALBERTO presents no less than six perfectly tailored Premium Business Denimpieces in high-quality fabrics that elegantly bridge the gap between casual and dressy and also feature detailing that leaves nothing to be desired.
The collection highlights include extra-soft wool pants in no less than seven different checks and a subtle stripe design. As well as casual regular-length styles that are wonderful to turn up, the Mönchengladbach fashion label also presents a cropped variation with the classic shorter leg length.
