If fashion is story telling, then Giovanni Lo Presti is a master in weaving dreamy, whimsical stories of elegance.
Lo Presti's designs are a colorful burst of energy contrasted against a dreamy, slow elegance of femininity. Bold, smart and fearless, yet maintaining a high level of functionality, his designs are fast becoming the celebrity favorites in Cannes and NY.
Almost unassuming, yet singular is the designer’s unparalleled will to go beyond the safe definitions of fashion and include philosophical and intellectual orbits into his creation. His latest collection “The Lost empires' perfectly capture the aforementioned singularity, and is inspired by Lo Presti's intellectual exploration of the lost city of Atlantis,and the lost continent of Mu and Babylon. “What if these continents were still with us ? How would they dress?
He plays with the notion of unachievable perfection, subtly erotic, beautiful and authentic. One cannot miss the rich reflections of Millais' Ophelia on model's half emerging from water; a testimony to the designer's fascination with dark romanticism expressed in rhetorical, feminine visual language- his signature rendition of fashion.
LO PRETI is one to watch, and follow and the 'Lost Emipre Collection' is solid testament to this.
