ARMANDO COSTA & 8IGB FASHION SHOW, JANUARY 17th 2019 AT 6 PM
For this Menswear fashion week, Istituto Marangoni Paris highlights the talent of its alumni by presenting the Collection and collaboration between Armando Costa and Ruben Bissoli, emergent Italian designers based in Paris and graduated from Istituto Marangoni Milano.The ManekiNeko show :
The street and off-beat stance of Ruben Bissoli, from the 8IGB brand, meets
Armando Costa’s more couture syntax in an unprecedented dialogue,
striking with a strong and unbridled visual language. Laced with references
to the sacred and Eastern spirituality, ManekiNeko diverts the symbolism in
very urban and contemporary silhouettes.
The concise calibration of the
pieces in each look distils the decorative and semantic overload of certain
elements and patchwork. Fringe of shade blurs the classic of a shirt or
blazer, dolls hair escape from a child’s room and come to land on a faded
jeans while Mangas, ManekiNeko just like the chakras or the imaginary
« glossy » West Coast pools spread their vibrations throughout the collection.
A refreshing and uninhibited view of the men’s wardrobe for a burst
ensemble, blurring the lines between religion and publicity, global
phantasmagoria and local folklore, childhood toys and gadgets.
