Manuel Facchini studied at the prestigious St.Martins School of London. Contamination is his buzzword.
As a person who has always loved any art form, he generates an unusual syncretism through his creations in which artistic experimentation is developed in a continuous dialog between an innovation of forms and concepts. His name brand made its debut with the fall/winter 2016 collection.
It blends apparently irreconciliable worlds: gothic rock and sports, intended as processing techniques and architecture , that are united through an unusual new conceptual and innovative interpretation.
Gothic severity, which contrasts with lightness, comes to life with 3D geometric shapes and designs reminiscent of architecture and high-tech.
Patterns, which are the real protagonist of the collection and a silent tribute to art, are created through the use of jacquards, personalized prints, and placed motifs.
The collection was designed for a determined, modern, multi-faced, cosmopolitan woman who feels at ease in any situation. Cultured and vibrant, she has two souls: sporty-chic by day and dark rock by night, but she’s always absolutely sophisticated.
Manuel Facchini’s story is expressed through his collections in an explosive mix of cultures and countercultures that range from Victorian England to Life on Mars, from the gothic moods of Northern Europe to Hollywood glamour. The synthesis of these elements gives his clothes pure,geometric,sculptural aesthetics for an absolute ideal of beauty.
