Structure. Form. Rhythm. Improvisation.
Sylvio Giardina’s Spring-Summer 2014 collection embraces the technical craftsmanship and the technology know-how, thus allowing talent and creativity to fully express themselves. A world of contaminations skillfully assembled by experienced and crafty hands, in a color and fabric synaesthesia that gives life to a “polyphonic” composition: tweeds are vibrations, denims are solid sounds, tulles are harmonic scales, which, like the sonorities of a DJ on the fly, produce new and unexpected volumes, contrasts and silhouettes, with an everincreasing flow of new discoveries, such as in the interweave of cotton, silk and metallic threads simulating tweed or in the grating designs in tulle suggesting a tattoo on the body. Colors are like contemporary sounds: powder blue, light pink and white are crystalline sounds, mixing with the powerful sounds of black and blue jeans, that briefly give way to the tropical sensuality of lime green.
Every dress is a one-of-a-kind composition, an Artificialia, a collector’s item, in which the sartorial and Haute Couture history combines with the most advanced treatments, in a never-ending contamination between different styles and eras: menswear fabrics mix with sports elements, infused of romantic tulle, unveiling the body or creating full skirts. Contrasting yet well-proportioned mixtures: cocktail dresses are matched with a see-through and subtle bomber jacket. Sylvio Giardina’s Spring-Summer 2014 collection is a contemporary resonant vision that can
be freely mixed to create your own personal sound.
This collection will be on show from 25th Semptemper to 2nd October (11:00 am / 07:00 pm) at the temporary showroom in Paris ( 20, rue des Tournelles).
