Displaced uniforms – Lucio Vanotti

Known by his easy simple cuts, the geometry in favour of the silhouettes and the mathematical precision by his side, Lucio Vanotti presented a new collection the past February 21 in Milan.


A subtle opposition showing a clear manifestation against standardized behaviours… when talking about behaviours I mean the imposed ones, in this occasion are the uniforms: workwear represents a way to establish norms of dress codes to define an individual as a part of a group.


Even if its main mission is to turn off the individualism capable to be expressed by clothes, it has a good approach from a semiotic point of view: a strong aesthetic pattern that helps to identify that an individual belongs to a certain stratum of society.


Volumes got maximized, the typical waistline got displaced, blazer turn into a main garment and not as a complement, block heels with stockings stolen from a 90’s look-a-like secretaries, “wanna be” denim with dislocated endings and some outerwear to complement the whole proposal. The chromatic palette? pretty neutral with some shots of color: electric blue, fuchsia, yellow and orange.


Pure forms, playful angles were put together with colors and misplaced silhouettes to break the statements and give a new mood to a complex union of aesthetic signs that were born to unify.
