“We are not machines: we all are souls facing time acceleration and we all run towards our dreams and happiness. We can dress like Robots but we will always remain undeniably human”
Italian designer Angelo Cruciani presented his latest collection for his brand Yezael at Milan Fashion Week.
“I’M NOT A FU ** ING MACHINE” is the slogan of a collection where ethics and aesthetics collide creating a look that speaks of an increasingly technological, and less and less poetic world.
The collection touches our obsession with mobile phones, laziness, and luxury. The young people the designer envisions are aware that life is made of contrasting levels where the cloud is replacing real memory and Photoshop is now our personal trainer.
The concern that the lines between virtual and physical reality are blurred, threatening to transform men into machines is behind the collection leading to mostly black and white and various of shades in the middle, no colours except for the graphics that invade the entire assortment.
Luxury Streetwear is presenting pieces from raincoats to evening dresses. Designs are unisex, Avant-garde with punk references but at the same time with a touch of elegancy compromising between Jacquard and rips, seams and applications. the collection longs for artistic and social value and courageously embraces a cross-continental aesthetics: Japan, the USA, Germany, the UK and the Eastern countries. Unquestionably the least Italian collection ever proposed by YEZAEL.
