FALL/WINTER 2013-14

The inspiration for Gabriele Colangelo’s Fall/Winter 2013/14 collection stems from artist Laurent Segretier’s photographic digital distortions with his saturated colors of a pixeled ‘reality’.
The artist’s exploration of the nuances between imagination and realism in a world where perception is a sensory overload of images portrays the idea of a developed ‘reality’.
The idea of the ‘unfinished’ is expressed in textile solutions that disrupt the linear path of the wire, creating a vacuum and allowing glimpses of the body. It is articulated into the wicked made my wool yarns that fall into fringes and fabrics which gradually lose consistency and become impalpable organza.
The textile metamorphosis through needling fibers that melts and mixes shiny and opaque colors and textures reinvents the use of astrakhan, which becomes mink and turns into two- tone stripes. The evolution of the fabric goes back to the original order in the rigorous lines of the garments, boyish lengths and styles are evident in the collection which are contrasted with micro-dresses and mini-skirts.
A camera bag in black cross mink with leather handles in python are produced by Borbonese. The leather boots with net stripes are produced by Bionda Castana.

ABOUT THE DESIGNER
Gabriele Colangelo was born in 1975 surrounded by his family business in the furrier industry. Learning the expression of craftsmanship and grace in the industry early on still resonates with the designer today and is reflected in each collection.
Gabriele’s design career began at Versace and Cavalli. With his namesake collection represented globally, Gabriele is contributing his design expertise as artistic director of the historical Italian label Genny which was designed by Gianni Versace in the early 1980s.
Gabriele’s first passion is the search of the highest quality fabrics and textiles that contribute to his collections. Each piece in the collection highlights Gabriele’s passion and values for each garment’s precious detailing.
In 2008, Gabriele Colangelo was launched in Milan and is recognized as an elegant, timeless label designing innovating pieces and reinventing the concept of grace and luxury. Harmonic, modern and lively architecture is visible in the designer’s garments and allows the label’s consumer the ability to express their own culture, personality and strength.
