Arthur Avellano SS18
Arthur Avellano is fascinated by the study of socio-types and the social mask that muzzles our impulses. This season's collection titled "Chute Libre" is inspired by the cult film "Falling Down" by Joël Schumacher which tells the story of a man who becomes extremely frustrated with the pretence of modern society and later develops into severe consequences. Avellano associates this almost perverted state of mind with fetishism. He provocates by enriching his choice of textiles with a unique research of latex, leather, neoprene and spandex and transform them into a classical men's outfit silhouette accentuated with details from sportswear and tailoring.
