WOMEN SS15 PRESENTATION

17 September 2014
 

We presented our womenswear Spring Summer 2015 collection today!

Further strengthening his grasp on womenswear while staying true to his unique vision, Marcelo Burlon presents a sharply kaleidoscopic women’s collection for s/s 2015. The composite iconography he is a master at - a personal collage of tribal and religious signs fused with snakes, numbers, geometries and animal-skin patterns - gets a glamorous, if street-savvy, makeover, translating into a tuff, luxurious wardrobe for the brave metropolitan adventurer, as sexy as she is kick-ass.

Mixing bold shapes, body-conscious cuts and precious materials, the collection is a striking crossover of functionalism, sass and pure visual joy. Long t-shirts made in jersey and silk have an easy fluidity, while bra tops and leggings sculpt the body, with prints adding another level of visual charm. There is a constant tension between refinement and abrasion, animal and abstract, masculine and feminine: transparent georgette shirts and ra-ra skirts alternate with biker jackets and sleeveless denim jackets, functional cargo trousers and field jackets with ripped boyfriend denim shorts, skinny bombers with sleeveless hoodies or body-hugging silk jackets. The poncho is the new urban staple. Prints mix animal ombrè motifs with bold geometric signs. A new pattern, inspired by Argentinian horse jewels, creates a sense of preciousness, highlighted by the gold inserts and the sequin embroideries. Black leather provides a biker subtext, while printed slip-ons add dynamism.

The overall mood is graphic, with a feminine edge. The collection is a repertoire of iconic pieces which can be interpreted following one’s own whims. The message is: be brave.
 
 

COUNTY OF PALM ANGELS

17 September 2014
Featuring large-format photographs of skaters in Venice Beach and Manhattan Beach, Palm Angels is the definitive book on the L.A. skateboarding scene, capturing the style and street culture of the world's most elite communities of skaters. Photographed by Francesco Ragazzi, Palm Angels features a special focus on the look and fashions of skate culture. While it emphasizes dramatic movement through stunning images, it is less focused on describing tricks as it is about conveying the sensation of men and women engaged in an epic, all-consuming activity, providing readers a firsthand glimpse into skateboarding in its modern form.

MARCELO BURLON COUNTY OF MILAN has teamed up with Ragazzi to produce a special edition of the Palm Angels book, accompanied by one of the three 100 numbered limited edition t-shirts.

The COUNTY OF MILAN for Palm Angels edition comes in a black box imprinted with gold lettering, upholstered in shiny gold mirrors, including a special t-shirt inspired by the world of Palm Angels. Skate boards, skaters, and their natural environment are remixed in a graphic kaleidoscope.

Palm Angels is published by Rizzoli and includes an introduction by Pharrell Williams (known to the skate community as Skateboard P), who has been instrumental in popularizing the skate look and has propelled it all the way to the high streets of fashion capitals like Paris, New York, and Tokyo.

The MARCELO BURLON COUNTY OF MILAN for Palm Angels edition will be exclusively unveiled at the concept store Colette in Paris on the 27th of September with an exhibition of the photographs and a book signing from 4pm–6pm.

Shop the limited edition at Colette in Paris, on the COUNTY OF MILAN e-shop at www.countyofmilan.com, or via www.palmangels.com.
The MARCELO BURLON COUNTY OF MILAN for Palm Angels edition set, including one t-shirt and the book wail be available from end of September 2014 onwards.
