For the SR 1 Sergio Rossi 2017/18 collection I designed the monastic capes for this highly choreographed presentation. Set in an abandoned church in the heart of Milan, the models were seen walking inside an architectural structure (which happen to be the headquarters of famed Milanese firm CLS Architects). Thanks to the help of sartorial craftsmanship by Lodenthal in Rome, my team and I envisioned two capes and made them into one, keeping the double hood and hems. The result was a whimsical movement at every model's step and added mystery and drama with the exaggerated hoods. As a reference to the this year's SR1 shoe-collection, I had rings made as brass-knuckles for the models, shaped with the same metal flowers that decorate the shoes.
