Philosophy of Lorenzo Serafini Spring 2022 Collection – WWD
Funky and sassy, the Philosophy di Lorenzo Serafini spring collection was designed for girls who dress to impress.
“This collection is all about freedom, fun and a desire to express oneself through clothing in a shameless way,” said Lorenzo Serafini, who revealed that for the first time since he joined the brand as creative director in 2014, he looked into the brand’s archives. . In particular, he found inspiration in the Philosophy advertising campaigns of the 90s which nodded to the free spirit of the 70s.
References to these two decades collided with the collection. While high-slit mesh dresses and bikini tops worn under men’s leather jackets exuded a certain ’90s finesse, the multi-colored leather intarsia on fringed biker jackets, flared and ruffled pants and sequined dresses echoed disco glamor.
To the tune of Barry White’s songs, the Philosophy show opened up to other fashion figures as well, including a raver wearing lacquered pants with a sexy bondage-shaped top unexpectedly printed with a floral pattern. hand painted; and a cool downtown girl who paired her roomy, elongated blazer with a flowy blouse and a pair of shimmering emerald sequin baggy pants. She wore a python-print leather interpretation of a grocery bag, showing that you can never be overdressed for shopping.
While the brand’s iconic romantic touches were still there – delicate florals, laces and ruffles included – the philosophy evolves with today’s young women, independent individuals who refuse to be put in a box.
