Editorial

A gothic and at times post-apocalyptic collection from Barbara I Gongini inspired by rugged northern landscapes, dark seas and jagged coastlines. The designer’s propensity for genderless clothes came through in deconstructed and shredded all-black forms, with the exception of some black and white striped looks. Accessorised by big chains or other heavy gemstones around the neck, the models looked like so many Mad Max warriors with spider webs of knit clinging to one arm or leg and thin asymmetric pieces decorated with hanging strings or with slashed sleeves or cut-outs, sometimes layered, other topped with jackets or coats, some of which were sleeveless. The shoes were solid and often had chunky wedges.
