Iceberg flies to America to dress Danilo GallinariMilan, January 2013 – Iceberg heads to America to create a wardrobe for Italian pro basketball player Danilo Gallinari. The world-class sports champ has chosen to dress Iceberg off the court during the long NBA season (October to April) in the U.S.
For Danilo Gallinari, 24, star of the Denver Nuggets, Iceberg has designed an exclusive series of custom outfits that will serve the Italian-born talent well in many non-game situations. All in perfect Iceberg style – smooth, easy and contemporary.
That’s precisely the mood of the clothes, with a classic appeal in the palette of colors: navy for the cool wool suit with tone-on-tone satin lapels, pure black for the formal tuxedo. Other great items include the duffel-coat in dark blue cashmere melton, the peajacket in white&black wool herringbone, and the white T-shirts with print on front.
The finishing touches to the wardrobe – bow-tie and big brown distressed leather doctor bag – are equally distinctive. The clothing and accessories come in black garment bags with double logo: Iceberg for Danilo Gallinari, plus Danilo’s own crest, an oval with red lurex rooster.
Gilmar CEO Paolo Gerani comments: “Danilo offers a fresh take on versatility, a fine balance between modern bespoke and cool casual style. Danilo is an international emblem of excellence in his field, just as Iceberg is in the realm of Italian fashion. When we met we hit it off immediately, that’s always an excellent premise for a successful partnership.”
Danilo Gallinari adds: “I’m very happy to have this chance to dress Italian style, absolutely the Iceberg way.”
