A tribute to the first meeting of the Sicilian with the US style
The childhood memories of the Sicilian designer meet the American dream filtered by the passage of time.
Marco De Vincenzo‘s collections are all played between optical prints, black charleston dresses from Grande Gatsby, Studio 54 colors and sexy ballroom silhouettes.
«I started from the memories of an aunt who came to visit us from the USA when I was a child, in Siclia», explained the stylist in the backstage of one of the last fashion shows.
“His appearance was really upsetting for us, full of Californian influences and desire to play,” continued the designer. The lace in fact abounds and the logos are not lacking. Giant crosses are worn as necklaces and movie stars appear on the bags. The maxi prints of small animals or pet toys are an ironic touch, like the plexiglass and wicker basket bag. Rainbow is the palette that alternates with black, omnipresent in black leggings, a true obsession with styling.
In short, the vitality of Sicily meets the ingenuity and optimism of America, for a wardrobe that knows how to mix sportswear and underwear.
Impressions? Marco De Vincenzo demonstrates how young talents can still grow in the Italian fashion scene. The collection has clear ideas, precious and recognizable details that are pushing the creative on the international stage. All with welcome irony.
