BEAUTY: Clothing--Frankie Morello
One can always count on the design house of Frankie Morello to come up with a peculiar spin on shape and texture, and this year at Milano Moda Uomo, Frankie Morello were clearly snagged on architecture and finish materials, as if they had recently taken a trip to their local building material warehouse. In keeping with the '13-'14 Fall/Winter emerging theme of bold prints and graphics, images of brick apartment buildings and interior views of living rooms mingled with suits and pieces printed with wood parquetry, marble flooring, and shards of glass. And the designers of Frankie Morello, Maurizio Modica and Pierfrancesco Gigliotti walked the runway in their own creations (final photo). I am not that attracted to the collection but I appreciate the uniqueness of the theme and effort.
