The iconic style of Dolce&Gabbana meets the prestigious Istituto Marangoni Milano for the brand’s first-ever collaboration with a top fashion school, involving students from the Menswear Fashion Design Master’s course.
The Nero Sicilia project launched by the fashion label invited students to make a cultural and social reflection, exploring the relation between past traditions and new trends within the fashion industry, shining the spotlight on topical issues such as sustainability, innovation and gender fluidity, opening a dialogue with Gen Z.
Students were asked to create a collection investigating the importance of the black color within the Sicilian tradition, combining new product concepts with D&G’s strong identity. Young designers developed both a collection of ten total looks with products from different categories and accessories, and a creative concept for D&G Fashion Show, considering all the organisational aspects of the event.
For his project “NewSicilianità”, Pedro Covelo was inspired by film cultural references, exploring the poetic soul of Sicilian tradition. His collection narrates the different stages of human life, starting with religious traditions from birth to wedding. Garments clearly embrace Sicilian cultural and historical references with a contemporary take on traditional clothing, according to a renewed brand vision.
