Matteo Lamandini Spring/Summer 2017 Lookbook

"The inspiration for Matteo Lamandini‘s SS17 collection, titled “IDENTITY NOT IDENTITY“, is the underground and urban world: from the sixties British punk movement to the contemporary Berliner hipster’s one.

“As for each of my collection, I again started from a formal concept of the garment, thus by fixed rules, in order to then deconstruct them. In this occasion, I tried to do that by getting as close as possible to the underground world, without neglecting the sartorial aspect, which is very dear to me. I therefore readjusted the style to the present age where, sometime, is the fate that predominates.” – said the designer

A source of inspiration has been also the artist Imi Knoebel that projected Matteo toward rows games which he tried to translate and reproduce on the garments." -

In this collection there are many contrasts: between slim-fit and oversize in the volumes; between tissues of pinstripes, Prince of Wales (thus fabrics belonging to a specific category), denim of different washes/colors and several types of nylon in the fabrics, that, together with accessories – such as chains, brooches, piercing, eyelets from the urban context of both past and present time – spoil the right balance and make all more underground.
