Alessandro Vigilante’s aesthetic and philosophy consists in a clean, linear, yet hyper feminine dynamism, where the human body is at the center of the scene. The essential nature of a dress, wrapping a body: the dress meant as a second skin. Clothes are meant as an expression of the body, harmonically mixing different textures and fabrics. The conscious sensation to unveil the body playing with the fabrics, removing and ripping layers, exposing the skin, framing backs and necklines.
Vigilante’s commitment is translated also in the attention towards the production of its clothes, all of them are made in Italy and realized with sustainable techniques. Latex, for example, characterizes almost the entire collection, but is ecologically made from natural rubber.
His influence and passion for contemporary dance is revealed in a dialogue of two opposite characters: Pina Bausch and her oversized sartorial looks expressing human flaws as exaltation of the personality, versus Merce Cunningham’s essentials, covering arms, hands, fingers, showing precision and technical perfection.
