The PRE FALL 2019 collection
by Pierpaolo Piccioli
Intermissions allow meanings and possibilities to expand.
The space between things is a place for pondering and inventing.
A syllable captures this suspended idea of construction: Ma.
Ma as an expansive and meaningful void.
The non perfect as the language of ever-evolving beauty. Time as a tangible quality, as intrinsic value, as a sign that affects surfaces and ignites feelings.
The iconography of the Maison - the ruffles, the lace, the grace, and then the flowers, the colors, the motifs - is interpreted in a wabi sabi key. Volumes are purified, ruffles are crushed, pleats are misaligned. Black and red are splashed onto prints, the V logo marks allover.
Familiar signs are transposed and seen anew. Change is in the point of view: a quest for imperfect perfection. The code becomes inclusive, keeping the street as the horizon.
