“THE SKIN” is the new SS20 collection by Parisian designer Louis Gabriel Nouchi. The collection, presented at Paris Fashion Week Men’s takes inspiration from the iconic Italian writer, Curzio Malaparte and his legendary masterpiece by the same name.
The collection is a message based on the book imagery. A message of love, coming for peace in this amount of violence.
Classic Pieces are delicately sloughing to reveal Italian marble and pattern, like a moulting through history. All destruction aspects on garment refers to the poetry of ruins in romantic paintings, showing the violence of human behavior, nature and time.
Tattoos, images spinning joy and pains of soldier on missions, translate the deepest moment and becoming another skin. Like a banner of intimate memories. It is carrying sensibility and a history in every clothes, showing the world what this man has been through.
