Calcaterra AW/23

Backstage during Milan Fashion Week.

Calcaterra explicitly celebrates female elegance and character through an alignment of minimalism which has long defined his personal aesthetic through the codes of the house. A careful study of form, volume and sleek lines of a modern masculine/feminine silhouette are the chromosomes of the brand created by Daniele Calcaterra in 2014. This Fall collection of the Milanese designer is entitled “The Wave”, an aristocratic vision with punk reflections, designing a new individualism. Inspired by the natural dynamism of a cyclical movement: vast, unpredictable, unknowable, both life-giving and life-taking. Monochromatic looks, dynamic silhouettes and loose tailored lines of the oversized coats and jackets, were complemented by sartorial details and bold accessories. Abstract shapes and asymmetries redefine the silhouette as do the voluminous fluffy jackets and the long, masculine tunics. The designer’s favourite tones are vibrant and ever-changing, with bold, dystonic tones: sage green, forest green, carmine red, smoky gray, black and any tone of white, from milky white to creamy white, cream, ivory and antique white.

“Because it’s not just a matter of clothes, it’s a matter of dreams, and if there are no dreams you can’t call it fashion.”
