Maurizio Massimino is in the spotlight at Pitti Immagine Uomo 96 with an overhauled, sartorial and unique style.
I like to step outside the box and steer clear of the clean-cut, austere style that prevails among the masses and in everyday life. With my fashion, I aim to communicate in a fresh way that is influenced by the different experiences that I have been lucky enough to have over the years. The Men’s SS2020 collection tells the tale of three journeys and three sources of inspiration that triggered my creative processes and helped me to conceive an overhauled, unique sartorial image.
In Africa I fell in love with the colours of the sand and the soil, ranging from white and beige to chocolate hues. The resulting clothes come with zebra-pattern fabric detailing and hand-written wording.
Meanwhile, I was enchanted by the idea of festive occasions in coastal locations such as Mykonos, Saint-Tropez and Capri, with backdrops formed by stripes, floral patterns, fresh and light fabrics like linen, and blue, white and sandy hues. Finally, I took my passion for the garments with a vintage flavour that I seek out across the globe and used it as the basis for research, presenting a modern take on them.
The wonderful thing about this collection is that these three worlds have intermingled and produced new outfits that reject today’s prim, stuffy conventional approaches. Details, appliqués, patches and blends of materials give my collection a unique, customized and individually tailored style. The Maurizio Massimino style.
