Throughout this partnership, Canali will synchronize the FW2018 collection on Secoo's platform with its physical stores. This new collection offers an ultralight blazer made with a single layer of canvas, providing an unprecedented level of lightness whilst coats take on fluid forms. Asymmetric pea coats, long military-inspired parkas with wide hoods, and sheepskin leather jackets with oversized collars stand out in the luxury leisurewear section. Accessories blend together the concepts of elegance and comfort - extremely soft and lightweight carryalls are made from a textured leather that creates natural shadows. Double monk strap shoes are presented in dynamic shadowed leather, rounded at the topline, and slightly squared at the toe.
