A brush with the future and a nod to the past with modular menswear.
Starting out as a designer at Iceberg, Andrea Cammarosano has gone on to create his own line to represent the unique, personal experiences and encounters that have gifted him with a multi-dimensional perspective. A view that pays homage to Italy’s legacy of classic elegance and respect for tradition. He tells Vogue Italia: “My motto is: dream and question your identity, but never forget who you are.” Andrea enjoys collaborations and is commissioned work by clients from all over the world. To keep himself and his line fresh and inspired, he seeks beauty and drama everywhere, using them as guides to constantly spark his imagination.
SPRING/SUMMER 2014 COLLECTION
Drawing inspiration from worker and miltary uniforms, Andrea Cammarosano shows reverence to rank and to the wisdom gained from experience in a world where ritual objects are intended to preserve history as relics. The heritage of craftmen techniques and the irreplaceabe touch of the expert human hand lies at the heart of his concept as he makes a subtle comment on the failure of mass production to preserve these legacies.
Andrea Cammarosano’s Spring/Summer 2014 collection “Difendi Conserva Prega” (Defend Conserve Pray), comprises a series of modular outfits that tell a tangible story. Multiple details fit together with zippers, buttons, drawstrings and straps to make unordinary uniforms. Fabrics, patterns and cuts are look to the uniforms of Taliban soldiers and civilian workers. The interchange of graphics and embroidery from one piece to the next, recalls the ritual of mourning and comes to own tradition through a message of hope for the future proposed by an imagined Grass Roots movement.
