Following our constant evolution and firmly betting on the world of fashion, we are pleased to sponsor the Presentation of the FW Collection 18/19 of 44Studio that will be held on January 21 in Paris.
44Studio arises from the idea of creating a fashion without barriers, free of labels or genres that define or limit itself, where there is a place where women are seen with oversize jackets or masculine looks and where men are free to wear skirts or dresses. With an Avant-garde attitude, it´s collections converge past and future, tradition and technology, tailoring and streetwear, creating timeless pieces and a redefinition of the classic silhouette. 44Studio is a project that deepens equal parts in creative and technical development, seeking sustainability, viability but, above all, reference and message.
MR.WILDE is a tribute collection that aims to pay homage to one of the most controversial and transgressive figures of the late Victorian London society and popular icon, Oscar Wilde. Known for being a dandy, with his extravagant style and his brilliant conversation, Wilde soon became one of the greatest personalities of his time, being admired and insulted at the same time during a terribly repressive and corseted environment.
A true dandy of his era – of exquisite manners and a taste for refinement, but at the same time rebellious and a defender of freedom and beauty – it was precisely his eagerness to publicly express his feelings and his blindness for love, which provoked his descent into hell and the tragic outcome known to all.
Beyond the invaluable legacy that he left us through out his literary works, is one of our favorite novels “The portrait of Dorian Gray”, his figure has reached our days as an icon of modernity, of untamed genius and of tireless struggle for freedom of expression.
To create this tribute collection, we started with revisiting classic tailoring, deconstructing and superimposing pieces, seeking to create the image of what would be a contemporary dandy for us. The palette of colors that make up this collection go from an omnipresent black to a range of blues, ultra violet, green and silver applied to textures such as wool, flannel, popelin and cotton. On this occasion, once again, we have collaborated with the invaluable THE ART COMPANY for the design and creation of the footwear
