If some days before the summer begins someone has already started to ask for the new arrivals, maybe we need to stimulate a greater curiosity about what our collections have still to say.

In the middle of spring and with the catalogue almost complete, we can finally give life to some suggestions with the colours and the movements of the real life. Yes, because it is inside the most authentic world that we work and spend our time, inside very concrete boundaries, often shaped by necessity and objective urgencies, or more simply, quotidian. A warning, this is not a top model show but simple experiments tested on ourselves.


Also an occasion to introduce you our Francesca, young IVO MILAN new entry, a precious backing for our communications and the online store replies…


So we tried new matching, putting together different ideas, colours and fibres. In a new and interesting dialogue between them, the silhouettes of our aficionados, Yohji Yamamoto, Junya Watanabe, Rick Owens, Daniela Gregis, get in touch with the new experimentations of the Korean brand Forme d’Expression, expressive talent produced in Italy, and draw themselves alongside the eclectic British tailoring of Vivienne Westwood, the great new entry of this spring/summer with the Gold and the Red Label. The pictures here below can guide you and maybe inspire you in the discovery of the fabrics, the cuts, the volumes you will find in the shop in the next months. Enjoy it!
