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.
Taking inspiration from English royalty and Kings’ scandals of abdications to the art paint and costumes of Ainou and African tribes or even from their own experience of brotherhood, Valentin and Florentin Glémarec explored family, power games and a affiliation.
Shoes were made for walking and walking is something you need to do if you want to see all the shows from the Fashion Week. Photographer Andrea Dell’Aquila captured, in exclusive for Fucking Young!, some of the choices seen on this edition of Milan Fashion Week.
