In the last two years, designers have given their best in terms of creativity to offer garments that suit new needs, such as smartworking. This requires combining maximum comfort with elegance and sophistication. Wool or fleece trousers with a drawstring waist, for example, meet Balmain's elegant and refined touch, so much so that by no means they can be called ‘sweatpants’, and they are perfect to be worn with a jacket. The minimalist cardigans by Jacquemus can be worn with an austere shirt or a t-shirt in a more casual mood, and are a good informal substitute for a blazer. To complete the look, the slip-on loafers by Valentino Garavani, crafted from black leather with a logo in a contrasting colour, offer total comfort combined with maximum glam, a grand look also when sported together with a classic suit.
