Genderless and Conceptual - Alessandro Trincone Spring 2019 Collection
Making his official NYFW Men’s runway debut, Alessandro Trincone presented his SS’19 collection, Avvolgimi – a collection that embodies the power within us. Avvolgimi celebrates life and the people who find the courage to be themselves at any cost, breaching the tedious sexual standards and gender roles. It is a personal journey which begins by discovering ourselves and ends with the free and resolute choice of self-expression.
About Alessandro Trincone:
Alessandro Trincone is an Italian fashion designer and owner of the brand that bears his name. After graduating in 2012 in Costume and Fashion Studies at the University of La Sapienza in Rome, he moved to Florence where successfully achieved a master’s degree at the European Institute of Design (IED) and later his second graduation at the Polimoda in Fashion design. He eventually received a scholarship at the Osaka Bunka Fashion College in Japan where he found his authentic inspiration. Growing up in the outskirts of Naples where people around him look at his creativity with strong skepticism was not easy but that hostility only made his artistic impulse stronger. Indeed all the prejudices towards him and his creations endured during his teenage years are dragged into his art and beautifully transformed. That process becomes vital and it is where the concept of “genderless” come from. Using typically feminine fabrics like chiffon, silk and tulle on men becomes his eccentric and recognizable sign. In 2016 he won the Vfiles Runway 7 contest in New York displaying his first official collection Annodami. On that occasion, he caught the eye of the Atlanta rapper Young Thug who chose a particular piece of that collection for the cover of his album “No my name is Jeffery”. Annodami is followed by Abbracciami and Agendermi collections in 2017 and Aroundmi in 2018.
