Sylvio Giardina is a creative artist working for high fashion brands as haute couture designer with 15 years of experience. Recently he is launching own label that expresses bright creativity and presents a new female identity in his AW’11/12 collection. Through the study of a new silhouette’s structure Giardina endeavours to reshape the figure with skilful tricks of Italian high tailoring and avant-garde inspirations of current lines with a great result. The designs apart from being shapely imbalanced with displaced center of mass, they are a form of genuine line with the synergy of fashion and art.
The designer focuses on architectural aspect of male fabrics as cool wool, wool crepe and the sensual wool jersey embroidered with Sangallo lace. He slightly emphasizes standard proportions by the use of innovative cuts, renovating shapes, escaping from traditional clichés. This sophisticated collection consists of synthetic colours of helium blue, cadmium yellow along with anthracite grey and impure white bringing sartorial elegance in line of pants, tube dresses, shirts and structured jackets. Defined with avant-garde accessories of coloured mirror and Plexiglas buckles and belts, the outfits are transfigured into sculptural elements.
