Maasai art and gaugin paintings were the origins of the new prints and graphics making up the latest collection from tommaso aquilano and roberto rimondi. an unexpected cultural mix that the duo have transformed into a poetic and contemporary wardrobe which is illuminated by a palette of emerald green, turquoise, pink, red and orange. two silhouettes oppose one another; the first is short and the other falls below the knee, often with a belted waist used to harden the look. however, all the talent of these two designers resides in their embroidery work which embellishes these outfits. this adds to a more sporty side with more techno materials used for sweatshirts and t-shirts mixing cotton with silk and with neoprene. high-tech couture destined for the street. tommaso aquilano: as with every season, we mix a lot, but this time we used more clean and poetic colours. we took the maasai ideas of colours and graphic signals and mixed gauguin poetry and his very free women, in the image of the modernity of women. there are lots of printed fabrics which are inspired by art and that is our vision for every season; to mix fashion and art. this season was more wearable and clean but still incorporated all the signature signs of aquilano.rimondi: it was sartorial once again, focused on italian sport, high tech in the fabric research like with a range of t-shirts. they are in silk, cotton, neoprene or printed mikado mixed with neoprene. this is because we believe that now is the time to transform a shirt or a t-shirt into something that could be luxurious and very rich. music from the show
