The twisting of fabric, in the artistic and visual language of Jorge Eielson, surpasses the two-dimensional limitations of a flat surface.
With the knot, as an ancestral and linguistic sign of tension between matter and time, movement stops and the canvas is secured.
The result of this material-symbolic reflection is at the heart of the creative process of the GABRIELE COLANGELO fall-winter 2021 collection.
The twisted and heat-stabilized fabric retains the mechanical memory of the process and becomes stretchy and flexible with movement.
The surface of the lavender silk blouse and skirt becomes flexible and sculptural. The double wool jacket and coat in vibrant cobalt blue and straw yellow are composed of vertical bands alternating with crushed velvet; a belt tied at the waist subtly reveals the silhouette.
Pleated devoré satin with abstract overprinted motifs and intense orange accents is twisted to create sinuous lines around the shoulders of the slip dress worn over straight chestnut brown pants.
The long forest green jacket in heavy viscose twill is cinched at the waist with a rolled belt that hangs down with long tassels on the ends.
Honey-colored raffia threads mixed with white cotton create a compact floral weave for the tank dress and pencil skirt with asymmetrical fringed hem.
Matte silk soutache undulates on the hem of the double cashmere wool coat, becomes scalloped trim on the cuff on the masculine-cut shirt with large peek-a-boo cutouts under the arms, and rests on the pronounced shoulders of the camel-colored silk-wool gabardine coat.
The generally oversized silhouette is cinched at the waist with slender chain and tubular belts with large snap-hooks and organic surfaces.
Sandals with gold-tone chains and spheres or fringe alternate with leather stove pipe boots with ankle strap.
The leather and raw-cut boiled wool vest with deep curved armhole is a protagonist.
Roomy nappa leather hobo bags, brown shearling crescent bags, and soft orange leather bags are featured.
