All the world countries have color blocks or stars and straight lines in their graphic symbols. Matching stripes and stars, in fact, we can represent the two souls of the same flag: while stripes speak rigor and simplicity, stars tell us about dreams and possibilities.
From the 60's Op-Art to Latin folk garments, to the more classic versions of pinstriped fabrics and marine style, fashion is often inspired by the simple communicative power of these two graphic elements. Many menswear fall/winter collections, such as those by Salvatore Ferragamo, Givenchy, Jimmy Choo, Valentino Garavani and Gucci, are enriched by decorative juxtapositions of stripes and stars that give a vibrant sense of movement and a vivid spirit to t-shirts and jackets.
The combination gives life to creative and yet refined patterns, but it is important to delineate a clean silhouette, a classic basic palette, few touches of bright colors, elegant finishes and quality materials.
Follow our suggestions and live this trend with style.
Walk of fame
Do you want to be a movie star? Crossing the street on the black and white stripes that connect the two most famous streets of the city of cinema, Hollywood Boulevard and Vine Street, you come to a road with more than 2000 stars inscribed on the asphalt where you can walk among celebrities. Want to be a star among stars? Sometimes you just need an outfit to make the dream come true!

Dark blue is enlivened by small details, red is the only color accent. The stars become small, almost imperceptible, camouflage themselves among the garments, and leave colored lines as trajectories of comets. A casual but stylish outfits, thought for the day, but with the prospect of a starry night ahead.

It is not a matter of patriotism, but of true love for fashion. The newest and most innovative graphics for menswear are inspired by the colors and geometric designs of flags: large and small stars, blocks of solid colors, patterns of lines on a totally black background.
