[MILAN, IT.] – Suspended above the runway for Marcelo Burlon was a wired mesh Cathedral that was created by the artist, Edoardo Tresoldi. It was the first thing to absorb your attention, once you got pass the darkness of trying to locate your seat. The artwork was noticeably wired throughout the show, however, before the presentation started the electric blue spotlight on the white mesh transformed the piece into what appeared to be a 3-D hologram at first glance. The colonnade stretched around the catwalk in multiple sections and dangled above the seated audience.
In 2012, the launch of MB County of Milan, started off with selling t-shirt’s by word of mouth to all his celebrity friends and since then has grown to be a predominant label in streetwear culture. And, I say streetwear loosely in hopes that Burlon continues to design more high-fashion items. Previously, Burlon had designed suit jackets, just not a full blown suit like he’s shown this season, a two button and a double-breasted suit. Besides that, majority of the clothing were casual, yet, primitive looks that were solid colours like electro blue, highlighter yellow, black, neon coral and a select few of tie-dye prints. To add flavour to the mix; bucket hats, sun-shades and fanny packs were the obvious accessories styled for the sporty-club aficionados.
Side-note. What didn’t make any correlation to the collection at all were the ‘Easy Rider’ graphics that seemed to be out-of-place and belonged to a different project entirely.
