Gian Marco was born in Nuoro in 1999 and he lives between Oliena, a small mountain town of less than seven thousand inhabitants in Sardinia, and Milan. He studied architecture and interior design at the Liceo Artistico Ciusa in Nuoro, even though he grew side by side with his strong passion for fashion.
His dreams bring him to aspire to own a company operating in the fashion sector and reflecting the values of Brunello Cuccinelli's brand. His idea of fashion is based on the exaltation of the made in Italy, the hand-made, the highest quality of fabrics and sustainability, all mixed with art, a fundamental theme of all collections. For these reasons he decided to enroll at the Istituto Marangoni in Milan, to be able to experiment and learn various creative and production processes in order to be capable to pursue his future dream.
Art, artists and divas, the 60', shades of blue and white, a whirlwind of inspirations that create collages.This is how this collection was born.The journey of inspirations comes to life from Walter Albini, the praise to his person suggests the rediscovery of linear silhouettes reproposed in heavy boiled wool.The universe of transparent organza, very thin dyed wool gauze and knitwear of the aesthetics of the 60's and 70's divas is fused together with the abstract and bidimensional worlds of some artists.
The art of Jonathan Niclaus and Jean Cocteau, who with pencils, oil sticks and colors, create captivating compositions is immediately declined in embroidery of alpaca yarns that make emblematic garments unique. The strength of Accardi's confident brushstrokes imprint prints on the fluid silk, while those of Zimpel inspire the trompe l'oeil processing on mohair. Linearity and monochrome contrast with details exasperated in size and the fundamental materiality that transports us to a unique world.
The collection is characterized by linear silhouettes, but each garment is unique thanks to the inclusion of embroideries that take inspiration from works of art. These embroideries are all handmade and with various yarns, all natural, such as cotton, alpaca, cashmere and silk.
