Marcelo Burlon has won a loyal following for his dialed-up, hard-rock aesthetic — he is best known for graphic T-shirts with dramatic prints around the neck and shoulder (think eagle feathers or flames bursting from the collar).
This season the County of Milan designer looked to Renaissance and Shakespearean imagery to inspire his punk-ish, printed wares. A rose motif made its way onto sweatshirts, Ts and a puffer jacket, along with the message “melancholic lovers.”
Racing stripes and patches added a motocross vibe to leather trousers and jackets, as did the red contrast collar on a cropped T. A knotted golden snake motif was another theme, while sweaters and track pants from a collaboration with the cult soccer brand Kappa tapped into the Nineties streetwear nostalgia of the moment.
The collection was heavy on red and black — including wool looks featuring a zoomed-in, maximalist plaid.
