Wolf Totem presented Spring Summer 2019 Menswear Collection, on Sunday 17th June, during the recently finished Milan Fashion Week. Inspired by Tibet, and its millenary culture, the collection mixes the tradition and modernity, setting out from ancient cultures to rewrite the code of our contemporary lifestyle.
The maison looks out to the Orient, where its origins lie, with an international and cosmopolite spirit: intense decorativism from Central Asia is reinterpreted through contemporary materials and workmanship. The visual effect is that of a modern-day aesthetic mystique.Fabrics range from highly-figurative prints to PVC light transparencies, from tannin-textile to sportswear and technical materials. Precious patterns design brand-new silhouettes: rivets and embroideries give new shape to the wolf head, representing the essence of Wolf Totem, together with other graphic elements. Laser cut-outs contrast with hand-made painting, metal appliqués and rhinestones connect tradition and modernity. Bright and bold nuances recall the Tibetan wilderness, glorious and full of contradictions: Tibet Red interacts with Jungle Green and Glossy Yellow. Earth colors play with hyper-futuristic details, such as synthetic fluorescence. Cultural elements, the Tibetan language and traditional ornaments, become figurative elements of a new global aesthetic language. – from Wolf Totem
