HC Project by Sylvio Giardina‏

Sylvio Giardina is new to me but I really love the way he shapes fabrics around the body to create a wonderful dialog between fashion and art.
Sylvio Giardina, influenced by the designer Gaetano Pesce's works of the late Sixties, reinvents the silhouette, playing with shapes and volumes that are continuously morphing and wrapping the body.
Rigorous shapes redesign the body, vibrate on it, spreading in a patchwork of fabrics, giving rise to a new identity for the clothing. The classic body shapes are nullified for re-creating other ones, new, inspired by nature that are far away from the clichés stated by the fashion rhythms. Jersey merges with the expanded polyethylene and organic structures are composed as well as organza that creates a metallic derma, following a path which is never linear.
Fascinated by Steve McCurry's portrait photos, he appropriates the colours from South-Eastern Asia: black, dove-color, bronze, violet, ivory, turquoise, copper red, beige, air force blue and different shades of green featuring in the color palette of the collection.

Fabrics: Wool jersey, gaberdine, velvet, wool, mohair, metal organza.

Have a look at his website for the rest of his work and take a closer look to these images when they come alive.
