In an evocative journey that spirals back to its origins, Giuliano Calza, with this collection, embarks on a sentimental homecoming to GCDS headquarters, not as a reversion but as a return enriched with accrued wisdom and awareness from the diversions through fantastical, excessive, and bombastic territories. This intimate in-house show, set reminiscently of traditional atelier presentations, allows a genuine, undistracted appreciation of the clothing, spotlighting Giuliano’s profound love for creating every day, life-accompanying garments. Engaging in a deeply personal exploration of Neapolitan and street roots, Giuliano reconciles with and boldly flaunts the brand’s logo, all while embodying a new consciousness and an “atelier feeling” that has underlined GCDS’s evolution. The collection is a harmonious confluence of denim, leather, straw, bourgeois tweeds, and touches of glamour, all amalgamated with a spontaneity that appreciates formality while playfully dismantling it. Logo subtleties, nostalgic wooden bag adaptations of beloved bakelite telephones, and silhouette-elevating platforms and heels subtly intertwine with the discreet charm of the bourgeoisie, in a collection that symbolizes a beginning anew, marking GCDS’s onward journey from a place of enriched origin. This return thus facilitates the commencement of another explorative voyage, everforward.
