ORDINARY AND EXTRAORDINARY, ALESSIA XOCCATO FALL 2013
Posted on October 2, 2013 by Marco Maggetto
She is a Harlow’s favourite since years. Is she an emerging? Is she an established designer? Alessia Xoccato is none of the two. She is established in the sense that she has a very strong continuity, collection after collection, and she is emergent in terms of simplicity because she is allergic to over structures as she tries to keep it smart and conceptual. Despite years in fashion, she maintains her strong values and we are more than happy of this. In a period where emergent are desperate to create more for their instagram followers than for their clients, enlarging their logos to 10 cm and make it as Kenzo as possible, it’s good to see that Alessia is making it well without making a fuss. Lately, she has been presenting her collections at the International Fashion Week “Moroshka Fashion Week” that took place at the Peter and Paul Fortress from August 22 to August 25. And it was a success. And successful, in term of press, was also this fall collection 2013 that takes inspiration from Brancusi’s sculptures and the atmosphere of David Lynch’s films. Xoccato designed a wardrobe for a woman that lives in the ordinary but also in the extraordinary, that is confident but open to new adventures. Alcantara, boucle’ wool, fake fur, multilayer lace and silk are the materials while the silhouette is always clean and totally modern. Made in Italy with love and for people that lives, and wear, fashion in real life.
