Marco De Vincenzo

Designer: Marco De Vincenzo

Launched: The Sicilian designer launched his namesake line in March of last year after working with Silvia Venturini Fendi, the accessories director at the fabled luxury goods house. “Though I built my experience with accessories, I always knew that I wanted to design clothes,” said De Vincenzo, adding that Fendi was a great learning experience because of the mix of craftsmanship and technology.

Base: Rome, where De Vincenzo still consults for Fendi.

Creative spark: Sicily is a major source of inspiration, though never too blatantly. A print, for example, can vaguely recall majolica tiles. De Vincenzo opts for simple silhouettes with elaborate constructions and an Art Deco bent.

Spring highlights:
The second-skin attire used by gymnasts inspired De Vincenzo’s spring effort with lots of Lycra spandex and cotton jersey that he fashions primarily into elongated T-shirts and finishes with intarsia detailing.

Retail prices: From 200 euros ($295) for a T-shirt to 1,000 euros ($1,475) for a lace dress.

9 p.m., Sept. 26, 34 Via Turati.
