Alain Quilici lays design under our feet
Lotta Volkova wears:
Alain Quilici is tuscan, and tuscany is known for its high quality leather products, both for the treatments of the materials and for the “haute couture” handcraft owned by its artisanal tradition.
Alain comes from a family of cobblers and what he did was to add a unique and very personal imaginary to a very solid background. After studying in Florence at Polimoda and then at London College of Fashion he started his own label with a growing succes and many creative and interesting collaborations. I love especially the one with David Koma and Yqing Gyn, french_chinese designer. I must say that the designs he creates with form and function in mind, adding an unexpected third element has a mature and complex imaginary; he just added a quite keen male collection. I can’t wait to buy myself a pair of its shoes.
As reported by London Fashion’s week profile his signature is A unique geometric frame and modeling, clear and specific cut and an evident scar, his brand philosophy is Remodeling of the human body through technology while his inspiration comes from the eighties and the nineties, the years he was born and grew up, the streets of London where he is moving his studio this year and the Design Museums around the world.
I hope to meet him at the next trade fairs in Paris and to bring to a dc a brand new interview as I did with his friends Comeforbreakfast!
