Graphic Tales for Digital Girls is the claim through which we can understand the new A-lab Milano SS’18 collection.
This new collection is entirely devoted to this discipline and include pattern systems built intended to communicate a thought, a world, or sensation. Bauhaus design is referenced in this collection, as a source of content, and for the avant-garde spirit of future gazing.
No regrets in using photographic and pictorial patterns, the return to the brand codes of using a mix of primary colours, incorporating them onto the usual volume of pieces. The hand-made drawing, primordial human gesture thus becomes a collection of abstract animal patterns that meet digitized and irregular cross-links, confirming the urban jungle mood proposed for the FW’17.
Structured outerwear pieces, which are part of the brand DNA, are juxtaposed to dresses and chemisiers in shirting fabric, simply held by soft lace fabrics wrapped around shiny steel rings. The varsity jackets, basic urban chief, are embellished in ateliers by sequinned embroidery and handmade beads, and even the most traditional fabrics such as the sangallo cotton, are renewed through digital prints.
Embroidered silk chiffon dresses to be used as a layer even in street styles as well as technical mesh T-shirts to emphasize the daily and precious blend. Besides the two-colour textures, the primary colours coexist with each other for a renewed RGB (which becomes here Rosso-GialloBlu) while the logo is visible on T-shirts and sweatshirts along with the collection's claim.
