Today I wanted to showcase another up and comer, Italian designer Marco de Vincenzo. His work is an example of another designer, whom I was unfamiliar prior to this season. However, I did do my due diligence and checked out his prior work. I must admit I was impressed. Vincenzo seems to have both a keen eye and skilled hand when it comes to detail work. Interestingly the Marco de Vincenzo S/S 2013 Collection showed much more restraint, suggesting a designer who had learned to edit himself.
I am attracted to the easygoing nature of these pieces. They looks had a ‘throw on and go’ feeling to them that spoke to spring and summers sensibilities. The ease also added to the versatility of the pieces, for although they seem made for daywear, the right accessories could easily add up to drinks and dinner.
The knits are probably the most visually interesting elements in the collection. The pieces have an artistic appeal to them that stretches beyond whatever trends we will season next season. I found them very welcome detail in an otherwise subdued collection.
Your turn! Tell me, does the Marco De Vincenzo S/S 2013 Collection charm you? Or were you left wanting more from this Milan Fashion Week runway?
