Marcelo Burlon County of Milan Spring/Summer 2018
A gothic/surf hybrid was the starting point for Marcelo Burlon’s spring collection. Tropical motifs such as sunset ombre and palm tree prints were fused with more urban elements from baggy pants and oversized hoodies to nylon track jackets and study denim. A red and black colorway prevailed throughout which signaled a darker, almost sinister mood. High-tops and bomber jackets also conveyed a hyper-streetwear aesthetic made even more pronounced with the casting of tattooed men with piercings and jewelry. While there was a wide array of pieces and patterns to choose from, such as acid plaid shirts and crop tops, the strength of this collection lied in the severe, bad-ass looks such as the opening number in fiery red. Elongated ponchos also worked well as a standalone piece, further underscoring Burlon’s commitment to creating desirable pieces with singular appeal.
