SoRaspy: Marcelo Burlon 2012 Fall/Winter T-Shirt Collection
Italian designer Marcelo Burlon brings his iconographic vision to life on an unexpected canvas, unveiling a line of T-shirts in collaboration with graphic designer Giorgio Di Salvo. The visually stunning displays of graphic prints throughout offers a nod to multicultural elements including Mapuches crosses from his motherland Patagonia, Argentinean bird feathers, esoteric symbols, and nods to rave and club culture, to offer a diverse and arresting display of wearable art.
The T-shirt, Burlon attests, is “clothing at its most basic and effective… a playground, a declaration of intents; a political manifesto, even.” His friends Macs Iotti (L’Uomo Vogue) and Givenchy head designer Riccardo Tisci serve as inspiration for the surrealist designs — in fact, the manipulated, kaleidoscopic graphics call to mind those presented for the aforementioned brand’s recent menswear collections. The collection will be available by the end of the year at select retailers including Lane Crawford, Union, Antonioli and SOTO.
