MFW – Marco De Vincenzo S/S 2013 collection
An ancient and frescoed hall near Piazza dei Mercanti in Milan has opened its doors to a significant audience curious to see the new proposal for the next season of Marco De Vincenzo.
The presence of important guests – including Franca Sozzani and Stefano Tonchi – and the many fashion editors and stylists such as Angelo Flaccavento, Giovanna Battaglia and Elisa Nalin to name a few, strengthens our feeling of being in front of one of the next big things in the panorama of Italian fashion.
In fact, the collection is a categorical beauty, designed for a sophisticated woman tied to a certain sartorial tradition.
Smartly, it flirts with the lines of sportswear to create a new perfect wearability for our fast-paced world.
The colour palette contains crystal white, hematite black, opal, azurite and pink quartz. A range of mineral shades from which a magmatic and ancestral energy and purity is drawn. A geological inspiration is most evident in those prints that evoke the faults of the rocks and the veins of the marble.
Clean lines and precise details in contrasting colours help to create silhouettes that are extremely contemporary.
The shirts are really graphic, both when worn as shirts, and when worn as dresses.
It’s amazing how – despite the total absence of a frivolous note – the collection is, in any case, quite feminine thanks to the raw cuts on jerseys, the contrasts of weights and high-tech embroideries, and to the large use of fine knit fabric that wraps the body sinuously.
Overall, this is a feminine collection that adds a “bubbling magma” under the composure of architectural forms.
