The connection between his youthful self and his residence impressed the poetic and private assortment Federico Cina designed for fall.
Childhood reminiscences of constructing tent homes and creating his protected haven beneath curtains and blankets stirred the designer to translate these parts that may have outlined his house of escape into garments: striped padded materials, quilted blankets, raw-cut items in canvas and scraps of tapestry-like textiles have been assembled with an artisanal strategy to create a wardrobe imbued with an artsy-crafty vibe.
Cina’s forte, knitwear, as soon as once more shined with all its charming patchworks of floral and argyle motifs, distressed results, mushy textures and oversize proportions that telegraphed a reassuring sense of coziness. Maintaining silhouettes elongated, the designer flanked knits with deconstructed tailoring layered over fluid ruched clothes and tapered pants, in addition to closely manipulated denim in paneled pants or reworked into uneven frocks with raw-cut finishes.
Elsewhere, Cina performed with earthy hues, light prints and tie-dye results to convey a languid, lived-in really feel.
