Italian designers Pierfrancesco Gigliotti and Maurizio Modica wanted to bring the beauty of simplicity back into the stylistic memory of Milan Fashion Week. The boxy clean cuts reminiscent of the 1930s were let speak loudly in limpid shades of marine blue, azure and red. And as only elements providing depth to the fresh clarity of the Frankie Morello collection are prints inspired from the zoomorphic works of Piero Fornasetti and Cornelis Escher and rubies, turquoises and coral dripping straight from the Sicilian baroque of Fulco di Verdura’s jewellery.
The two Italians talk about the carefully tuned simplicity of their design as about a kind of ’’positive luxury’’, concept developed in symbiosis with their predominantly young following. And, indeed, ’’youth’’ is the best word to describe the Frankie Morello look!
