The SS14 man collection made of squares, sculptures and art.
CONCEPT OF COLLECTION
In his past f/w 13-14 collection “Concrete”, Lucio Vanotti expressed his rational creative touch by fusing beauty with utility in a set of interchangeable pieces inspired by concrete pillars and an angry sea. This time, the concept behind his S/S 2014 collection lies in the anatomy of squared surfaces, rectangles and boxes. Mathematical equations dictate the structure of perpendicular shapes, translating into a dimensional game of interactive and contrasting silhouettes that never neglect the bond between surfaces and textures.
In one part of the collection, understated items flow through an essential palette of black, white, grey and blue, alongside conflicting striped fabrics, minimal squares and small hole details. The classical jacket goes armless and brings forth the deconstructed, boxy attitude of squared essence found also in pants, shirts and shorts.
In total contrast to this rigid feel, comes the lightness of the other part of the collection. Injected by a dose of ideas derived from sculptor Brancusi’s sinuous sculptures, Carl Andre’s geometric minimalism and artist David Hockney’s pool series, garments breathe intimacy. Creams, hued pinks and pinches of rust, accompany the pool water and egg/sky prints adding a graphic edge to the simplicity of all the collection.
Surfaces are grainy similarly to a metaphorical second skin, while textures and classic fabrics merge in a unique answer to innovation. Selections of alcantara, smooth silky cotton stretch, crisp seersucker, mako jersey, white plissé cotton and lightweight knits, give a translucent finish.
