Discover GCDS‘ Fall Winter 2020.21 Collection that celebrates designer’s heritage and his hometown – Naples, presented on Saturday February 22nd, during the ongoing Milan Fashion Week.
“Vico Stella 10, a winding hill road like so many others in Naples, may seem like an enigma after all these years, but in fact it’s the street Giuliano was born on. From these southern Italian roots, Giuliano would go on to live in China for four years, only to make a return to Milan and launch GCDS. “I have never felt at home wherever I lived,” he explains, “but my heritage gave me a feeling of never having left home, wherever I found myself working.” This desire to share Naples’ distinct sense of “extra,” with its intricate tapestry of emotions and aesthetics, leads him to mix, match, and share all these references collected over time.
Research for the collection began with a deep dive into shapes and silhouettes that defined the pop era of the 80’s and 90’s, utilizing more subdued color tones than those from past seasons. Our womenswear incorporates colored faux furs with denim, low waistlines, long coats, and flare pants: all together reminiscent of iconic 90’s American pop music culture. Our menswear continues to build on themes from this past season, but with a particular emphasis on incorporating new fabrics that are closer to the traditional sartorial aesthetic than contemporary streetwear.“
