MARCO DE VINCENZO – SPRING/SUMMER 2020 COLLECTION: THE WAVE
“I’ve been thinking of doing a monochromatic collection for a long time,”
said De Vincenzo, known for his eclectic textural work and experimental medley of color and pattern combinations. “What I had in mind was a sort of human rainbow, and here I am, with 47 models, who in sequence will give life to a diluted, stretched rainbow WAVE.”
Each color is a culture, each color an identity: their sum is an empathetic community.
Each model sported a monochromatic look, going through the entire spectrum from black to pink. Marco focused on texture rather than prints, patterns, or other pyrotechnics, creating a plethora of kinetic solutions and tridimensional, expressive juxtapositions.
“This collection is about differences and diversity”, said De Vincenzo. “Fashion speaks to every woman; I want to speak to every woman. No discrimination. Who is the woman who buys my clothes? Sometimes it’s just unexpected—perhaps it’s a woman I would have never imagined would like what I do. I want to celebrate women’s uniqueness and all that they keep giving me back.”
