When a generation is in search of a cultural identity, symbols are everything, where fashion reflects feminine contradictions and describe the different dimensions of today’s women. Cuts, bows and pleats become symbolic of stylistic communication. A coded message that takes an introspective journey through the fragments of Marianna Rosati’s dark romanticism for her DROMe, a´ la David Lynch, but with a fresh appeal and playful image. Between sartorial skill, technology, traditional roles and nuances of gender, the thread running through the collection is deconstruction. Starting from very lightweight leathers which become as fluid as silk, forming fine bows, asymmetries, crimping them in a patchwork of different rouches, creating unexpected movements.

A rather large island, Cuba is a living memory of a world where humans developed towns and villages in accordance with nature; in the pastel colors and in the ease of shapes in the architecture that reflect the wind’s travels as it carries the scent of the ocean. We found our presence to be humble, honest, sincere, and real. As the birds fly overhead and the ocean waves lap onto the shore, the steady hum of diesel fueled cars and distant music echo in harmony together under the ever present sun, which watches over this land. The ground feels more like the real earth, and the energy is steady yet moving, as the hummingbirds flutter nearby, carrying their hurried energy beyond blooming flowers and past carengines.
