Dear Shaded Viewers,
every season there are collections that don’t surprise you, and then there’s some that really do the trick. Marcelo Burlon’s catwalk yesterday was a strong development of a journey he already started in June. It featured contemporary urbanwear, powerful prints, bomber jackets, some basic activewear, and a few very interesting knits with oversized proportions that could be seen as his couture pieces [especially the dark green one with the thunder motif]. Burlon again looked to his multicultural heritage to mix Argentinian symbolism, layered and strong with a bold orange highlight here and there, referencing Tao, flames, sparks, wings and bones. Navajo-inspired geometries become the contemporary shaman uniform, whilst maxi capes were scenic yet functional and massive jumpers mixed with vinyl pants looked to a directional future. He also collaborated once again with Pendleton and Alpha Industries for the flight jackets. Tailoring was included again after the Spring-Summer offering, and again, it looked really well cut, County of Milan needs to evolve and the direction seems pretty clear. What Diane and I love about Marcelo is the energy that he creates at every show. He immediately makes you want to be part of his squad of cool people, who are not only models but also talents from diverse industries, such as Fa’Empel and Joao Oaulo Vieira Borges walked the runway and friends from all over the world.The show opened with a shamanic ritual with Mr. Burlon himself as master of ceremonies, wishing the best for everyone. We wish the best to you, Marcelo. Keep going on this path.
