Italian brand SPORTMAX presented their Spring Summer 2022 Anatomy of Silence Womenswear Collection, that was inspired by the work of American composer, music theorist, artist, and philosopher John Cage, on September 24th, during the ongoing Milan Fashion Week. The collection explores the duality of order and chaos, light and obscurity, and noise and silence, with looks that fuse a Baroque sensibility with minimalist functional codes. It challenges traditional perceptions, and brings a sense of escape within the canonic structure of the collection. The color palette contrast divertissement of nude, whites and ecru with shades of orange, fuchsia, yellow, light blue and lilac. Composer Teho Teardo (featuring Blixa Bargeld) created a special playlist for the brand’s runway show.
“Looks come to life through a fragmented lens, where a controlled clash between essential silhouettes and volumes creates an almost theatrical image. Shapes embrace the body with fragments like architected 18th century corsets, which juxtapose fanciful embossing and puffs designed with ultra clean lines. Tailored jackets are defined by new sidecuts and worn with soft leggings.” – from Sportmax
