Interview - Michele Cadelano
Exploring the imagery of a psychiatric hospital, Michele Cadelano transmits through the garment the intricacy of a mental illness. Inspired by the photographs of Christopher Payne "Asylum: Inside the Closed World of State Mental Hospitals" the Italian designer interprets a deconstruction perceptible and imperceptible. "IN-SANE" his graduate collection allows the elaboration of a serene and comfortable silhouette where ample volumes express an ease of interacting.
"How can you express the soul of your garments ?"
"This collection develops around the themes that perfectly sum up my imagination: muffled and decadent images from the past, the strictness of the men's clothes, the large and comfortable volumes. This is the spirit of my clothes, something soft and restructured filtered through an obsessive formal strictness"
"What makes you believe in Fashion ?"
"Fashion is the medium that I have for making my imagination concrete, and also the most direct way with which to give the opportunity for each person to be part of it. In practice it is as if they could get into my head and receive a small part of my world"
