For fall, one of his most compelling fabrics is a substantial moleskin in vibrant red that he cut into a generously proportioned parka and a lean pantsuit tailored along 1970s lines. The moleskin feels almost like velvet, but retains a sturdiness that gives it an everyday attitude. He used a lighter-weight workwear blue moleskin for a boxy button-down shirt and cropped skinny pants. All of the moleskin pieces are likely to become more interesting with wear and age. At the opposite, more polished end of the Fucci spectrum is silk crepe and tweed. The silk crepe he cut into a long, asymmetric neck dress worn over trousers, and the tweed he used for midi-skirts and a slightly a-line, sleeveless sheath. The Theory shopper is likely to be surprised by both materials and tempted by the tweed, a more substantial, versatile kind of fabric.
User-friendliness is essential to Theory’s DNA. This being a fall collection, Fucci showed a range of outerwear, from that moleskin parka to a double-face wool in traditional camel. The trapeze coat with a removable shearling collar seems most representative of his ethos: practical with a side of romance.
