The brightening light of dawn, as the sun gradually rises, and the early morning hues, suggest the visual atmosphere for Gabriele Colangelo’s Spring-Summer 2023 collection.
Night blue lightens towards pale blue, growing brighter, diluted with dawn yellow, turning towards orange and pink tones.
A technical, transparent nylon fabric, a new base for abstract patterns, simulates the sky’s fading air, conveying a sense of delicate lightness to trousers and slip dress.
Tropical wool, in diagonal weave, models tailor-cut men’s style jackets, which envelop the body with a collar of braided tubular elements, fastened on the back.
Tie & dye silk strips are knotted together in an embroidery, creating open patterns for outerwear and tops, embellished by pleated panels.
The tailored items create an elongated silhouette, with vertical openings, criss-crossed by thick silk thread stitching. The laser cuts, along the fabric’s warp, are fastened by short glass beads, shining with every movement, and producing a see-through effect. Multicolour curved bands cross the waist in waves, imitating the winding movements of celestial colours.
