#Legend - - AUTUMN / WINTER 2017 -

WE WERE TREATED TO WHAT ALESSANDRO MICHELE CALLS “THE ALCHEMIST’S GAR­DEN”, POP­U­LATED BY NYMPH-LIKE CREA­TURES SPORT­ING BOTANICAL PRINTS. THE THEME OF CONTRADICTION IN­FORMED THE DE­SIGNS – CONTRADICTION BE­TWEEN NEW AND OLD, MALE AND FE­MALE, SOFT AND HARD, OR­GANIC AND SYN­THETIC. SUIT EN­SEM­BLES IN OR­NATE FAB­RICS AND PRINTS WERE JUXTAPOSED WITH IRONICAL EL­E­MENTS SUCH AS LOGO-ED BEANIES, WORK­OUT HEAD­BANDS, FETISHISTIC CRYS­TAL FACE MASKS AND MAS­SIVE GAR­DEN­ING HATS. ATH­LETIC TRACKSUITS WERE SET OFF BY AN OR­NATE, BEJEWELLED BOW, AND SEQUINED FLOORLENGTH GOWNS WERE TOUGH­ENED UP WITH A LEATHER DOG COLLAR AND A NOSE RING. MICHELE TAKES YOU ON A RIDE THAT SWINGS BE­TWEEN SUB­LIME OPULENCE AND AN­AR­CHY.
