Marcelo Burlon County of Milan presented Spring Summer 2017 collection during the ongoing Milano Fashion Week. In his quest for the balance of opposites, County of Milan made the new collection as an ode to noise that ignites unstoppable waves of change. Bomber jackets, hoodies, tops and shorts printed in numbers and graphic weaves mix with Ninja stars and County’s very own Patagonian symbols are the key to this collection.
As visually bold and culturally layered as it possibly gets, the outcome keeps a note of authenticity that comes from real-life personal experiences. Marcelo Burlon, in fact, lives or has lived in the frst person the situations and inspirations that inform his multi-culti aesthetic. This season, for instance, he embarks on a loud sonic trip across ninja iconography, metal assertiveness and outer space futurism. The germ of this new exploration of the fast-paced, high-spinning, hyper-performing, urban style comes from Burlon’s childhood days spent under military dictatorship in Argentina. Up until 1983, when oppression ended, listening to rock music coming from English-speaking countries was severely forbidden. This created, all across the country, a ferce underground movement whose denizens kept traffcking with the noises and the codes of western rock, ultimately affrming their own freedom of expression despite of the bigger powers. Such is the disrupting force of music. – from Marcelo Burlon
