For his project Alfonso was inspired by the dualism of technology and the subtle border between reality and illusion. His project explores the deep psyche of modern women with a touch of mystery and cynicism.
This collection aims to break down stereotypes that corrupt our society. By highlighting our most spontaneous and natural needs, this project tries to forge a new type of contemporary human free to live his life without holding back. Nothing is for sure, therefore everything can happen.
During a hot summer night, while zipping trough different channels, I ended up watching "The truman show". Even though I had seen it before, I had never actually paid attention nor understood the movie's more profound meaning and maybe because of the pandemic, maybe because at my age nothing is really clear, I really saw a reflection of our times in a movie that was made over two decades ago.
The way some people manipulate our surroundings to change our perspective is still a very modern issue and through this collection, I want to project people into a new age of freedom where we are the ones to define our own reality.
As an inspiration for my details i started from 50s jewels mixing them up with more modern elements such as the beautiful headpieces by James T. Merry and Hiris Van Herpen. Wanting to give my manipulation a sense of life and organicity , I went ever further an took inspiration from reptiles' bones and easter dragon sinuous bodies.
