Giuseppe Virgone Ready-to-wear

Giuseppe Virgone has always been inspired by mythology, he loves the sacred side of the ritual and tries to bring it into his collections. Indeed the silhouettes are decomposed as a ritual clothing, the purpose being to make feel a tribe or mystical aspect. He also likes the transformation of the body in his space, he always tries to emphasize it by a mixture of materials and by an almost architectural side of the garment.

The space and body movements are always present when he creates and draws a new collection. Giuseppe Virgone has in mind the spatial occupation of silhouettes in the form of performance. He also seeks to destructure the silhouette to make room for a fallen, the goal is to drown the body to create a new silhouette and another movement of the body.

He has many sources of inspiration such as music, photography and theater. He particularly appreciates the director Romeo Castellucci who likes to work on the decadence of beauty and the mystery of the end. He could also quote the singer Soap & Skin, for its heavy and haunting music, or the artist Anthony Goicoela, for his work on the masculine identity in search of his place in society.
