In our fast and ever-changing world, heading towards a direction that’s opposite to the ongoing revolution might appear controversial. Yet, this is the path Davide Marello has chosen for Boglioli’s new direction.
His first collection for the brand begins with one word: patina. It is the layers of memories that cover objects, lending them a perspective of reminiscences and meanings. Each piece, each suit, each jacket was designed as if they had absorbed an imprint, as if they were Virginia Woolf’s Orlando (played by Tilda Swinton on the big screen); a character that travels through time and collects suggestions, tales and experiences.
A touch of Japanese influence, inspirations from Russian Realist paintings, and the unfathomable, magic melancholy of Balthus canvases characterize colors, details, prints, and features of the first collection designed by Davide Marello for Boglioli.
