Andrea Pompilio’s spring summer collection 2015, illustrates the father-son issue. So the idea is to depict through the collection, the conversation between the son and the father. The father is not a common person but a classic bourgeois man, even if the son has inherited style aspects from his father, he infuses his own elements into his dress. Classic silhouette contrasted by modern and playful elements. The collection presents, double-breasted jackets with cotton and linen paired with asymmetrical shirts with differing lengths and trimmed with pleated plisse for a kilted skirt effect. Retro sunglasses with oversized lenses and fine wire bridge reinforcing the sense of modernity and real innovation to the collection. Pompilio created a new model of man, an aristocratic charmed young men. As Pompilio said “He’s a rebel, the son of bourgeois parents, looking to make his mark on the world. He shows real pleasure in the way he dresses”.
