Colonial style fashion: 5 outfits

When the heat becomes stifling and the desire for fresh clothes is a must, the fashion goes to look for inspiration in areas far from the everyday. It dusts off the exotic lines, the colors of the tropics, the tissues that rhyme with lightness.

The colonial-style fashion can be definitely an inspiration to create the best outfit for the warmer days of spring and summer. As in a fashion safari, the trophy that we’ll bring home is the appreciation of the people who will seize our ability in this style game.

Directly from the new spring/summer Fabi collection, we propose 5 colonial chic outfits matching garments and accessories of exclusive Made in Italy fashion. 5 suggestions taking us back to colonial adventures in exotic countries told by great writers like Kipling and Conrad. As a modern Karen Blixen, we will venture in the savannas and grasslands wrapped in our stylish urban romantic charm. As a sad Pearl Buck, we’ll bring in our daily lives a little magic of distant lands.

Kenya – Who among us has not read (or seen) My Africa? If between the grasslands of our daily safari is wandering a lonely and mysterious Robert Redford, we would be ready to welcome him with a flawless colonial style outfit: lightweight suede jacket, shorts and canvas and leather combat boots.

Zanzibar – The Spice Island, the crossroads of cultures. This magical land can only inspire a special look: white cotton shirt, beige linen trousers and women’s laced-up ankle boots.

India – Are you ready to fall in the arms of a strong and bewitching Kabir Bedi in the guise of a Salgarian Sandokan? If you fall in his arms with the style that distinguishes us, be sure to wear a shirt in pure colonial style, a cotton cigarette trousers and beige décolleté.

Ceylon – Here our adventure smells of green tea. Imagine walking along the paths that climb the side of a lush hill planted with tea plants: what do you wear? We recommend a cotton shirt, with details in linen and mandarin collar. If you want a total colonial look, then be sure to match the shirt with a fresh and comfortable cigarette pant in linen and with a pair of slip-on.

Australia – A land so arid and dusty, immense and fascinating. Here, the origins of the earth are passed down from generation to generation through the songs of the Aborigines, as tells us Chatwin in The Songlines. To immerse ourselves in the dominant nature of Australia, let’s accompany the linen pants capri model with a safari shirt and a pair of espadrilles with rope wedges.

If you want to recreate one or all of the proposed outfit, be sure to visit the shoes, shirts and pants sections of our online boutique Fabi. Do you want to add a touch of style? Then complete your outfits with a scarf or a bag in colonial theme.

50 years of Fabi (part II): from sharecroppers to industrialist

Think, grandchildren, your grandfather in thirteen years had passed from sharecropper to industrialist; all this just by force of work and without the help of anyone.

The factory was everything we had and we defended it with nails and teeth

Elisio Fabi

1972: The first factory

After the initial period of sacrifice and renunciation, spent to counterstrike of fate Fabi manage to finance the construction of a factory in Monte San Giusto, to be precise in Villa San Filippo. It was the first factory in the area and, at the time, it was not easy to find labor, although there was plenty of work.

1975: excellence in workmanship kids

Thanks to the quality hides supplied by Sancho Tannery, the brand became a Made in Italy excellence for the production of classic footwear man kid. “We had become a leader in Italy in the processing and production of kids classic footwear,” recalls Elisio Fabi. The specialized processing, using techniques and equipment for processing of hides even thinner. The result was a sample with few varieties but in great demand.

1979: The new factory

For a company that works in the fashion, the factory is also a matter of image. Although built a few years earlier, the old factory started be not enough to Fabi who dreamed for a building with a largere lobby, modern offices and meeting rooms.

The new headquarter was opened in 1986.

1980: the temptation of exports and consolidation in Italy

Made in Italy, in those years, was beginning to look to foreign markets such as Germany and the USA. But it was a gamble for few.

“We were too small to throw ourselves into the fray – tells Elisio Fabi – Who had already tried with these countries had failed; then we continued to work mainly in Italy.”

1990: the opening to the women’s fashion

With the drop in sales of men’s fashion, the collections Fabi diverged accepting even the models dedicated to women. Initially it was not easy to find skilled workers for the production of female models. But, today, we can say that was a wise choice and women’s shoes by Fabi are appreciated all over the world. And the story of 50 years of Fabi continues with a new chapter.
