Inspired by the time spent in America, Daniel Palillo’s spring 2012 collection draws from the anarchy of the designer’s teenage music heroes, while painting a portrait of his everyday lived experiences: Saturday evening soccer matches, Sunday morning cartoons, etc.
In a world of his own, Palillo has a penchant for the monstrous and the symbolic. Staying inside his signature aesthetic – where enormous proportions meet three-dimensional structures and morbid graphics – the new designs take the trademark patchworks and cutouts on another level, stretching in both shape and size. And nevermind the introduction of basic colours the black humour remains.
This collection is all about the freedom to dress up. Martin Asbjørn takes you back to the nightlife of 70s disco scene where you dressed up for each other and preached the movement of sexual liberation and freedom of individuality.
