It is a period of reflection and relates to aesthetics, taking place before considering the restraints of production. Intw Alessandro Trincone
I’ve never choose to take this path, it just happen. After high school I just wanted to leave my hometown because I was done with it since it’s been very tough growing up here, my real passion back in the day was the music but I didn’t feel to take this path, so I only thought “fashion should be fun”. I was wrong about the “fun part” but I was totally right about to have taken the right path. I moved first to Rome where all started. As soon as I started, I understood that this was my world. The thing that most inspired me to become a fashion designer it’s the urgent necessity to express myself. The elements that inspires me the most are things like, flowers, movements and the most important one is the relationship between me and the society. I always listen to Hans Zimmer, he makes me feel calm and relax and he lets me feel all the feelings I have inside myself.
I think we are the killer of this world. Everyone. This pandemic situation to me is a reaction/alert from the earth. The world needed an important break from humans. And it’s amazing how much the earth has recovered in only two months without our help. I Hope that after all this situation we will understand and we will try our best to limit the pollution and keep the world “healthy”. And one of the key to keep the earth clear is avoiding chemical things such as synthetic fabrics. I hope they will produce new materials to help us designers to have more choices of materials. Currently I am doing a research to find an eco tulle, since is the fabric that I mostly use in all my collections. And I use a lot of meters.
Craftsmanship is one of the keys of my collections. Most of my garments can’t be produced in series, is more like “haute couture” since I work a lot with manipulation on the fabrics, volume and accessories. Every collection has a personal story behind, and that gives to them a personal interpretation of the garments and a different aesthetic I think.
I am currently focus only on myself, having fun with my collections, wearing them and pretending to be a model. I have set up a photo booth in my own studio (in my own house) and decided to spend some time with my creations, I have never done that and it makes me feel so good. To wear my babies, to feel them without any deadline or pressure. The philosophy of my brand is to express ourselves, to inspire people to react at this world fighting against the gender barriers. I am trying my best to create a new identity that goes over the genders. Over the male and female figure. More than unisex. Something neutral that if you see it you can’t say “it’s for a man or a woman”. I want to create clothes for people and let them feel themselves.
Culture is another key of my fashion. I am trying to destroy the parameters imposed by the society, so by the culture. That doesn’t mean that I hate the culture in general or my culture. Just trying to let the expression to be free.View the gallery
