The Milanese menswear brand Magliano turns to the androgynous 80s for its latest collection titled “Magliano Carillon”. Designed by Luca Magliano, the Italian brand revisits the classics of fashion with an unconventional twist.
Diving into the stereotypes of certain characters such as the “Narcissist Pirate” and the “Cruiser”, Magliano creates a story guided by the “polymorphic correlations” from one garment to another. The collection is a way to reclaim stereotypical identities, giving them a new voice which feels authentic and liberated. Through this process, Magliano Carillon documents the 80s pastiche while exploring an androgynous sexuality.
Shot in front of the Casa Museo Remo Brindisi, designed by Nanda Vigo, the collection takes us on a journey filled with dark cut-outs and an unexpected colour palette reminiscent of the flashy 80s – just look at those neon green and pink trousers. Magliano Carillon also offers oversized suits, patterned blouses and a mix of colourful and neutral-tone trousers. Pieces such as the ‘Magliano Uomo’ tank top and the white floor-length skirt are the epitome of Magliano’s design aesthetic; a liberation of gender-expression.
