Designer Marianna Rosati unveiled DROMe Fall Winter 2021.22 Collection that explores the duality within each of us – the way humans can be two different people at the same time. The collection was inspired by Stephen Willats’ book Doppelganger. Rosati invites us to accept our contradictions and contrasts, and live free.
Film makers Ruggero Lupo Mengoni and Beatrice Vesprini captured the fashion film presented during the recently finished Milan Fashion Week. Stars of the video are Asia Zebracka, Lidia Judickaite, and Makenna Cart. In charge of styling was Emma Wyman, with beauty from hair stylist Daniel Manzini, and makeup artist Karin Borromeo.
“The Collection is built around this duality, it outlines a daily uniform that morphs into its nocturnal guise, hiding a sense of subtle and daring sensuality right beneath the surface. Cuts and silhouettes are an expression of this intrinsic contrast: oversized volumes are balanced by cropped cuts, different lengths are layered together in unexpected combinations, redefining the proportions. The looks swing between a strong black and an icy white, with only a few concessions to other colours: a cold grey that redesigns the contemporary office suit, a loud green that lights up the looks sequence as a sudden flare, a soft touch of warm peach, and a crimson red that adds a provocative side to the palette.
Male shapes as blazer jackets and straight pants are paired with feminine skirts and dresses, long trenches and coats create the impression of mysterious coverings, sensual slits and mini belts covered in studs mark the silhouettes. Each look is implying an untold story, an enigmatic truth: every piece is an expression of a different self. The collection seems to suggest that the constant shift from one personality to another is not to be feared, but instead trusted.” – from DROMe
