aw23 URLARE LA LIBERTÀ (PPP)
A tribute to a life that we have almost lost, to an atmosphere without borders.
We have fun again, we play, we hug each other without ever stopping,
as if every day were a party, at school, at home or with grandparents.
How we were, how we should be and how we will be.
No convention or prejudice, we are all citizens of the same city.
We must always dream, even when we are grown up,
we must never stop, the dream sets us free.
SS23 THE DREAMERS
“CALL ME BY YOUR NAME” AND “THE HAND OF GOD”,
THE FILMS THAT TELL A PIECE OF ITALY, THE WAY OF DRESSING,
HOW WE THINKED, HOW WE LIVED AND HOW WE EXCITED, ITALY IN THE 1980s,
MORE PRECISELY 83-86, THE YEARS FROM MILAN “DA BERE”,
THEYEARS OF FOOTBALL, MARADONA, ENDLESS SUMMERS,
SEA AND MOUNTAINS, HEAT AND CONFUSION....
THAT YEARS I REMEMBER THEM WELL, I WAS A CHILD,
BUT AFTER I REVISED THESE TWO FILMS,
SO MANY EMOTIONS COME BACK TO MY MIND.
THE SS23 COLLECTION TRIES TO FIND THOSE MOMENTS THROUGH COLORS,
STRIPES, LIGHTNESS, A SET OF SO MUCH EMOTION,
TOO MUCH TO BE ENCLOSED IN A SINGLE COLLECTION.
AW22 VINTAGE AMORE MIO
A combination of carefully chosen colors, warm, soft and fluffy materials
on the skin, irregular cuts, stripes and tartans mixed together.
The winter aw22 of LIGNE NOIRE is a return to the 70s 80s, the workmanship
is handcrafted, the materials are precious and comfortable.
The love for vintage is reflected in the entire collection.
For this season (but also for the past ones) the main inspiration is always
Italy, its mountains , its cities, its colors, its art, its sun ....
but this time I imagine it over the years late 70s.
SS22 MOUNTAIN MEMORIES
The SS22 collection continues the path of last summer, of beach holidays.
This time it was decided to spend them in the mountains, in the Italian Alps, close to home.
August was the perfect month, away from the confusion, surrounded by nature.
Around the house there were only pastures for cows and a large green pine forest.
During the day the sun was very strong and hot, but in the evening everything became cool.
I've never loved the mountains so much, but one of the few things I liked to do was to wear cotton sweaters at sunset.
Often they were striped shirts, with geometric motifs and of many colors.
My wardrobe at the end of the bed, an old wooden cabinet with a delicious lavender scent, was full of clothes.
This collection wants to rediscover that wardrobe of many years ago, always so contemporary in my memory .... summer
began in the mountains.
AW21 LITTLE WES
The aw21 collection is inspired by Wes Anderson, director, set de- signer, architect, artist....
(among his favorite films, the Isle of Dogs, The Grand Budabest Hotel,
The Darjeeling Limited, Hotel Che- valier ...).
Of all his works I have always loved the use of colors, atypical, abnormal, simple in the balance between good and bad taste. Wes Anderson for the aw21 collection was a point of reference, but in reality it has always been.
Just like Wes (it seems that for each of his films color is the beginning), I imagined this new collection starting from the co- lors, selecting a color chart, the yarns, the models and then I assembled everything .....
In this collection I also tried to imagine how I would dress his actors (children and adults) in one of his films ....in case he had called me as a costume designer ....
SS21 ITALY 1982
The ss21 collection starts from a trip, or rather from the trips we made going to the sea (we lived in the mountains) in the 80s, in July.
We left at night, me my brother and my parents, to Abruzzo where we had a house there.
This collection tries to reconstruct what was in the suitcases or at least what I imagine could have been.
A set of colors and designs all ordered together, all prepared to spend the month of July at the beach, was 1982 ......
only cruelty free
sizes from 1 ( 12-24 months) to 11 years
