Ivan Lehec has a long history with fashion. Having worked in high-end retail for years, Lehec noticed many of his male customers were in need of personalized lessons in style, which weren’t easily available. On this principle, he founded Finezza: Au Nom L’Homme.
Working with artisans and clothiers, Finezza works around the clock to offer both universally stylish ready to wear lines as well as personalized styling advice and tailoring. While their tailor made collections and fashion tutoring lessons are Lehec’s passions, he also finds the time to create beautiful ready-made collections of off-the-rack formal and casual wear.
Debuted at Toronto Men’s Fashion Week, which concluded just this past Friday, Finezza’s Autumn/Winter 2016 line was an explosion of contemporary colours and patterns paired with time-honoured styling. Striding down the runway to classical music, the models at Finezza wore classic silhouettes, like dinner jackets, cords, and khaki’s with cable knit turtlenecks or ties in burnt oranges, paisleys, and neutrals.
The outfits were reminiscent of the most stylish school uniforms out there (autumn is all about back to school, as we all know), providing a clear direction for the upcoming season. The men who are in need of the founding styling services just need to pay a visit to the man himself. Home and office appointments can be booked online, or you can simply look at his most recent series for clear guidance on what you should be going for in coming seasons.
Keep an out for our April/May issue where we have a recap of TOM as well as our favourite looks from the shows.
