I am always happy to discover new designers whose aesthetic I really relate to, and this one is no exception. Gabriele Colangelo was a new name for my ears/eyes up until a few minutes ago when I stumbled upon his latest pre-spring 2013 look book on fashionising.com . Clean, modern cuts and original prints that make me think of a dry canvas stained with random splashes of colour which couldn't please me more, as I myself, am a fan of this technique..I am sure though that behind those prints lies a much more complex process, but still the result is gorgeous.
What pleased my visual senses even more was the composition of these pictures that have such an artistic feel, so different than the usual plain look books. Kudos to the model as well for fitting so perfectly into this artwork.
Of course I had to get more deep into this issue, so skimming through his biography I discovered lots of impressive details among which the following passage :
"When he took part into a competition organized by the Italian National Chamber of Fashion, Gabriele won a scholarship as Fashion Stylist. He has run numerous and relevant experiences with Versace, designing Versace Jeans for Women, and Roberto Cavalli on Just Cavalli label. Following those cooperations he took the role of Artistic Director for Amuleti J, part of the Mariella Burani Fashion Group. " Well..look at that !!
I 'll surely keep my eye on this talent which became such an inspiration for me. Each of his three collections are brilliant and I strongly recommend you to visit the label'swebsite.
