Street Barocco FW

The inspiration for John Zucca's FW collection Street Brocco came from the recurring geometric elements of the Baroque, both in the conception of complex structures and in their details, the shape of the "volute" widely used in the plastic arts of the sixteenth century, conquered space a century later and evolved into curls, curls and spirals endlessly.

From the Latin volvo, i.e. "to turn", and "to roll up", the volute derives from the Greek motif of the Ionic capital, revived in the fifteenth century, both as an order on the intermediate floor in multi- story buildings, and on its own, to characterize sober and elegant structures.
John Zucca took the "volvo" idea and combined the modern street and architectural style.

At first glance, this collection has a much more feminine spirit, with its shades of painting oil with straight and cocoon silhouettes.

The dynamic between precision and glamour, or utility and sensuality played out throughout the collection, with silhouettes alternating between the voluminous and airy. Classic volumes like the coat, the draping dress, and the hoodie were given a sporty twist and a comforting feel of ease through the counterintuitive use of high-end fabrics. A draping dress was made in wool and silk; a classic clutch coat was cut from cashmere. At the opposite end of the spectrum, a cocoon silhouette conveyed a more athletic, agile language in hoodies.
