Titled “Melancholic Lovers,” Marcelo Burlon’s County of Milan women’s collection for fall 2017 emerged from a desire to speak to an after-the-fall future. It’s grim and yet hopeful. “It’s a collection of clothes for post-apocalyptic craziness, as if some cultural Armageddon had already happened,” he told Vogue. “We imagined these are the people who have emerged out the other side.”
Offerings revealed what the label does best, which is to design casual apparel for the fashion forward female with a street edge. A bold mix of mostly black and denim separates with some looks from the label’s collaboration with Kappa, the two-year-old womenswear label continues to prove it’s deserving of a seat at the table.
