the Italian Cultural Institute and Vogue Talents presented eight talented emerging designers including A-Lab Milano, a clothing label by the duo Alessandro Biasi and Simona Costa. The duo behind Co/Te, Tomaso Anfossi and Francesco Ferrari, Antonio Romano and Francesco Alagna of Comeforbreakfast and Milan based designer Silvio Betterelli. Caterina Gatta’s style mixes clean lines and rare vintage fabrics, while Martina Grasselli presents jewellery inspired by geometric shapes. Francesca Monaco and Salar Bicheranloo present their luxury handbag brand, Salar.
Nicholas Julitta is a young designer with a passion for experimenting with fabrics and materials. This passion is coming through in the beautiful collection. The presented collection shows a series of garments created in collaboration with a prime Italian tannery: the same approach to matter and their trained skills got together to experiment new dying and tanning on natural and synthetic fabric.
It's about turning something synthetic into organic and "human". The clothes are handmade with a demi-couture approach. Each piece is reproduced in a limited range and made by fabrics developed in synergy with Italian leaders in manufacturing.
