One of the greatest ambitions of the fashion world has always been to find narrative pretexts, very often teaming the superhuman with the everyday, with a fantasy twist. This is the mission that some designers have started in a bid to revolutionize the fashion scenarios, by now worn out of hints and ideas. 

The ferryman’s name is Rick Owens. His creations are the link between dark worlds and the bored bourgeoisie who want to feel sexy, with figure-hugging clothes thanks to gorgeous Italian tailoring: “because darkness is the new coolness”.

It may not be the cast of ‘The Lord of the Rings’ but the staging at Acne Studios is worthy of the best Peter Jackson: in this case, however, the object of contention is ardour, embodied in uniquely crafted pieces, in the guise of armours for the fighters of tomorrow.

For a strange moment such as this, Loewe represents its creations through apocalyptic scenarios, with metallic and geometric 3D structures. A homage to daring, expanding your horizons, even transcending the anthropomorphic and thinking the unthinkable.

The Rodarte woman reaches the peak of her charms in these clothes by celebrating the beauty of the cosmos, the stars and alien thoughts through space garments, glittery decorations, accentuated transparency and asymmetry.

The height of innovation comes from Demna Gvasalia, who takes Balenciaga to the metaverse of pure entertainment, telling the brand through a short film of the Simpsons and projecting fashion onto the plane of global, collective communication.
