Fashion brand MAGLIANO presented their Fall Winter 2022.23 Menswear Collection, that explores encounters with a sense of solitude and melancholy, as part of the ongoing Milan Fashion Week. The collection was inspired by Luchino Visconti’s 1960 movie Rocco e i suoi fratelli (Rocco and His Brothers), a film that takes place in the boxing ring, and tells a story of a mysterious, cruel Milan, where the encounters are physical, and violent.
“And it is precisely on this idea of different declinations of encounter that the imagery is fulfilled. The exasperated logic of the appointment transforms the special density of the fighting ring into a bed where, guided by the unconsciousness of languor, pyjamas, dinner jackets, Swarovski-like glitter, gold lurex, star prints are manifested. But there are also raw materials, felt, shetland, wools, which insulate and protect.
The awakening is a nocturnal awakening, a place placed under protection by the different. ‘One is born old and one dies a child’. This union of several elements in a wrong way is ‘the time of the feast’. An inner or social place of wandering, of old sheets and blankets, of meeting outfits.” – from Magliano
