Marco de Vincenzo wants to baptise Sicily with its ancient name, rescuing it from obscurity and printing it on souvenir T-shirts. So, the letters in “Ultrapharum” dominated on white cotton, in different shaded colours, almost like an optical illusion. And that’s not all. The symbol used for graphic details and embroidery was a heraldic crest of a female head with three bent running legs, echoing another ancient name of the island: Trinacria. The collection was infused with a light, carefree feel. Silk shirts had pussy bows and came with matching cardigans and skirts in a play of rainbow colours. Dresses featured shaded fringing or prints of hands in bold purple and turquoise. The fluidity of the shapes gave a relaxed mood, typical of Sicilian dressing, to which the designer dedicated this collection, remembering the childhood summers in his homeland.
