AJMONE - Modern Times

AJMONE – Les Temps Modernes - LECLAIREUR

Ajmone signs a collection of leather jackets where strength and character go hand in hand, sublimated by this sense of style that only Italians have the secret. In other words, there is nothing better than thick leather to face, with ease, the hazards of modern times.

If Ajmone takes Charlie Chaplin and his "Modern Times" as a starting point for the collection Fall/Winter 2017collection, it is to better metaphorize his relationship with the material. The ultimate symbol of silent cinema, Charlie Chaplin made the gesture his signature, like Ajmone.

The very high quality leather represents the state of mind of the brand, a way of being and thinking that are guessed at. Handcrafted leather is recognizable by its touch and is refined over time. Vegetable tanning preserves the natural state of the skin's imperfections, its grain, its life lines, its raw and magnetic essence, the sign of an organic material like no other.

Founded in 2015 by Roberto Aimone, and his son Stefano, Ajmone is making a name for itself in the tailoring of leather jackets, which it revisits. From the perfecto to the biker jacket: the pieces come out in limited series, thirty numbered copies, closer to editions than collections. This season, they come in shades of black, charcoal and brown, evoking the industrial era so well sketched by Chaplin.

Available at Leclaireur Champs-Elyséesand Leclaireur Boissy d'Anglas.
