“I think that pre-collections are the ideal occasions to try to make things that are still special but are easy to integrate in a real wardrobe,” Marco de Vincenzo said. In his sophisticated lineup, the designer continued elaborating his own, very specific aesthetic based on the idea of surprising the observer. Cases in point: a trenchcoat with maxi buttons and an elaborate safari jacket — the colors looked painted on, but were actually crafted from a cotton and silk jacquard.
De Vincenzo also used a Japanese cotton and polyester fabric for a range of color-blocked plissé dresses, while a sequined slipdress was layered over a multicolored fringed stretch skirt. Compared to previous collections, the palette was less bright, centering on muted tones — such as the elegant burgundy of a slit skirt worn with a knitted cardigan embellished with micro bows.
