Italian fashion designer ROMEO GIGLI presented the Spring Summer 2023 Womenswear Collection with a digital presentation, during the ongoing Milano Fashion Week. The Epic Wanderlust collection is born from an intimate sensitivity gesture, the creative team turns its fervent attention to the core of passion that from the beginning guides the uniqueness of the Maison’s training path: practicing the attitude of storytelling through creation, to instill an enrichment of meaning in clothing, to blow a soul into the collection.
The inspiration that ignites the creative imagination begins with the methodical evocation of Romeo Gigli, and finds in the ancient myth of Gilgamesh epic the reason for connection: Sumerian Uruk legendary king and hero with a fearless heart, his warrior nature led him to wander across vast lands doing heroic deeds, his inner ardor guided him to the ends of the world to steal the secret of immortal life. The noble soul spurred him to confront extraordinary figures and to the comfort of fraternal friendship with Enkidu, who had appeared as a rival and turned out to be a vitally important companion: a strategic alliance that made the epic journey possible, as the synergistic union of style office binds the strengths and skills of creatives in the harmony of the new path. – from Romeo Gigli
Traveling in the SS_2023 is the same as performing an enchanting exercise for the imagination: the intense itinerary of Gilgamesh between bewitching natural atmospheres and prodigious animal creatures is instilled in the path of the collection, the legendary elements become formal clues which, thanks to the work of decanting the stylistic workmanship, create a current storytelling while merging with the sartorial construction. Thus the narrative thread knotted to the original story unravels: the story is transmitted to the material that becomes a vehicle for pure fascination and an emotional caress on the body. – from Romeo Gigli
