The invitation to the Milan show by emerging designer Federico Cina is a vintage record and a ticket that grants access to “Ball’era 77”, a fictional ballroom named after the collection his autumn.
The moniker was inspired by the vast Ca’ del Liscio discotheque, which opened in 1977 in Ravenna, in the Emilia Romagna region, where the designer came from. The area is known for being home to similar dance venues, defined by its chic design, classical music, and a convergence of old people and children that contribute equally to the atmosphere. cheerful, bold folk.
However, the show didn’t keep its promise of such a celebration. From the soundtrack to the clothes, everything leans more towards the 1990s than the era of teasing.
References to the original concept were narrowed down to a print of people dancing. These appear on tank tops and hoodies, while the laid-back regional Italian lifestyle is evoked by the soft and snug fit of knitted cardigans, loose trousers and maxi scarves are accents of the product line.
Cina stayed true to her vision of easy fashion through soft shirts and a long, flowing skirt worn over jeans. These vibrant pieces feel right to the subject, even if they convey a more languid look.
