when Italian manufacture meet creativity

The young designer Matteo Molinari was born in Belluno Italy in 1983. He won the price for the Best Collection of the Year awarded by the chairman of the British Fashion Council Harold Tillman. He made a sensational Menswear collection. His collection of jackets, collars and suits are very innovative and in was a pleasure to see such a well done crocheted tailoring.

“Usually young designers are experimenting more with shapes, extreme styles and eye-catching proposals and weird looks. Keeping this in mind, I tried to be different and began with the traditional male wardrobe, working on the essentials of menswear: the suits, the trench-coat, the coat and the white shirt. I changed proportions and I elaborated a personal silhouette: sharp for tailoring, structured and architectural for the coats adding the cross-gender twist of using handmade lace in a graphic and masculine way”.-Matteo Molinari-
