Edward Cuming is a fashion designer from Sydney, currently studying at IED Barcelona. His collection, entitled “Motion Sickness“, stems from a personal trip to Marrakech taken earlier this year. A three day expedition to the Sahara Desert exposed me to climates and environments so heavily contradictory to each ones previous.
The nature in which the Land manages to still hold a mystical sense of permanence and unity had me perplexed. Colour is being used throughout the garments to contrast and harmonise simultaneously with a unified selection of modern fabrics heat bonded and manipulated for full, masculine silhouettes. Shapes loosely linked to traditional Moroccan wear build staples for the collection and blocks on which pieces are able to highlight and accentuate the in built dynamism and layering through the looks.
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.
