Those mysterious crop circles served as inspiration for Manuel Facchini’s spring collection. “We wanted to focus on the idea of discovery,” said the designer, who installed his collection in a black box punctured with holes, through which visitors could peer. “It’s like getting in a new dimension [that] is open to different interpretations.”
Fashion-wise, Facchini stayed true to his inspiration by decorating the entire lineup with circles. They appeared as exquisite macramé embroideries on both a flared chiffon minidress and a black-and-white fluid gown. Laser-cut circles also trimmed the plunging V-neck of a black jumpsuit featuring a striped motif at the waist. They were also thermo-stitched on casual sweatshirts cut with a loose fit, as well as color-blocked bombers with a streetwise appeal.
