The philosophy of dress is largely unchartered territory. But ‘sartoriopathics’ know that textile, cut, shape, and pattern shape us. The Angels and demons we have inside and revealed, contained, organized or simply let loose on our bodies through what we put on.
We wear our moods and we wrap fabric around our emotions; when we can no longer speak, our clothing can fill the gaps and reveal or conceal our inner worlds. Perhaps above all, clothes can help us navigate our inner contradictions and allow the heavens and hells inside us coexist, to create something new: an outer hybrid of out interior dichotomies.
PRISCAVera FW19 is all about how we can wear and harness the heavens and hells we store inside. Moody and playful, the collection juxtaposes mild and wild colors for a palette that is purposefully disorienting: shades of white, bright oranges and greens, and various dark options. Tech materials continue to play an important role and this season evolve into a juxtaposition of sporty and eveningwear worn together, for day or night.
The collection climbs along the edges of normality, but never quite fall into that category. This season, PRISCAVera launches its first made in Italy kintwear line: cotton and mohair sweaters, and a blanket scarf in three colors — otter green, tangerine, and orange, designed to protect from outer and inner demons (or why not, indulge them).
In hell, the snow is warm and the ice is hot. The elements of the earth assume different characteristics and meanings; just as they do once they become part of our interior worlds. PRISCAVera FW19 takes inspiration from this notion: the world enters us and re-emerges as something new through the way we clothe our bodies.
