Marco De Vincenzo A/W 2015
A cool graphicism settled on the runway of Milan’s most promising young designer
Mood board: A cool graphicism has begun to settle on the runway of Marco De Vincenzo, Milan's most promising young designer. This season he pulled graphic rays from rainbows and splintered the shimmering tones across rigorously cut clothes.
Best in show: It’s great to see how De Vincenzo brings his knowledge of and love for complex constructions to fabrics like basic denim. Here, he reinvented that boring material by bleaching, dissembling it, dying and re-patching it together across narrow lined coats.
Finishing touches: The footwear was divine, specifically the grossly oversized cable-braided sandals that looked like giant prison chains crafted from rich jewel-toned velvet devoré.
