Fashion is a question of method, according to Gabriele Colangelo. “I studied ancient literature, Latin and Greek, and I have a humanistic background which strongly influences my working method,” said the designer, seated in his new showroom on Milan’s Viale Premuda. “I focus on subtraction, I try to reaffirm a certain idea of purity.”
Architectural, clean shapes combined with experimental, high-end fabrics are the trademark of his collections. Son of a fur artisan (his father, Sergio, manufactures the Colangelo’s fur pieces), the designer cut his teeth at several Italian brands including Versace, Just Cavalli and at Mariella Burani Group prior to launching his own label in February 2008.

"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
