In an interview with MFF, creative director Philippe Paubert talked about his collection made of refined materials, meticulous details, ethnic and military prints and fabrics made by licensees in Italy. The proposal combines classic with streetwear and is suitable for several occasions of use.

For autumn-winter 2022/23 Ungaro is inspired by a man who lives the city, modern and art-loving who explores the artistic places of Paris. “In order to find ideas, especially in terms of colour, I took inspiration from the iconic museums of the Ville Lumière with the intention of representing an inhabitant of the Left Bank,” is how art director Philippe Paubert commented in an interview with MF Fashion.

And so, the Musée d’art moderne contributed neutral tones to the collection: grey, natural beige, graphite, off-white. These, applied to fine wool, give a contemporary look to traditional formalwear, which is revisited with logos and abstract motifs. The main fabrics used are knitwear and nylon, which are transformed into oversize cuts that envelop the silhouette designed for the autumn-winter 2022/23 collection.

The Muséé Bourdelle suggested warmer tones, chocolate, aubergine, ochre, purple, dark blue for a wardrobe made of velvet, flannel and structured materials. Paubert’s visit to the Musée du Quai Branly brought him back to a conceptual modernity, “there I found the inspiration of South African culture, of the ethnic and used it for the jacquard, a Ungaro classic.

The military look is also fundamental to the fashion house and translates into cargo jackets and khaki bomber jackets for the more casual looks that refer to the 80s. The prints are also characteristic, especially the animalier, made with a special three-dimensional embroidery technique,” the artistic director commented. The collection adapts to different occasions of use: “for us, mixing is a way of being,” he added.

“Our main markets are France, Italy and Russia. We debuted with men’s in 2020 and this has led to great results: with F/W 2021 we doubled our turnover and we expect the same for 2022″, commented a company spokesperson.

The Toma Italian Brands group in Taranto, Italy, has entered into a licence agreement with the French brand from 2020.
