However, the most interesting collections were unveiled at the end of the day, on the Rome is my Runway platform. Gams Note
presented a collection that presented extensive research and deconstruction of the world of men's uniforms, especially scouts' uniforms and outdoor clothing. Having talked to him, we can confirm that his project is one of the most solid of those presented in this edition of Altaroma. A recognisable logo, “Pride,” functional garments built on design and a vision of fashion perfectly adapted to the new times make the brand one of the most promising initiatives on the current Italian scene.
Then it was Francesca Cottone's
turn, betting on the contrast of textures and patterns, just before The Silted Company
presented their new collection. This was one of the most down-to-earth collections, market-oriented, which starts from traditional Italian tailoring and blends it with a surfer aesthetic. And John Zucca
, the latest designer of the day to hit the catwalk, took inspiration from deconstructivism in a collection that pushes genderless and innovation. And of course, sustainability, which is one of the great pillars on which the vast majority of brands build on their proposals at Altaroma.
On the second day, we highlight Simon Cracker
, one of the flag-bearing brands of design based on used garments that bets on the overlapping of pieces and the balance between design and meaning – it is worth noting the black and white images adhered to some of its garments. Although the most surprising moment of the day was led by Casa Preti
, a brand founded in 2017 by Palermo-based tailor Mattia Piazza and by Swiss architect Steve Gallay, and their Naive collection. Although we should analyse who their audience it is and what market they are targeting, their unique personality and the daring shown on the catwalk deserve recognition. Special mention to the latest model, whose dose of energy materialised in the form of dance was greatly enjoyed by the public present there.
